I set up my D7000 to do some interval shooting on Friday night. Ended up taking 2690 shots. I had already done a few hundred shots since the last charge. It was taking one pic every 2 seconds. Set to manual focus and manual exposure mode would have helped I guess but that's still a lot of shots from one battery. I don't have it set to display photos on the LCD after I shoot either.
The D7000 is very frugal with power and when I used to shoot a lot with it the two batteries(1 in camera and 1 in the grip would allow me to shoot several events between charges, about 3000 shots. It is thriftier with power than either my D90 or D800 Stan St Petersburg Russia

I had to show this picture, or I wouldn't believe it myself. This is after shooting a car race all day with a D7000, Release Mode set to Continuous High Speed, VR on, but very little chimping. The battery was almost new. I don't usually get this many shots from one battery, but apparently it is possible.
