Hello. I rarely post questions since most of my questions that I am interested are already being asked.

The issue that I have been experiencing since I received my D800E is how quickly it drains the Nikon EN-EL15 battery compared to my D7000. For example, if I just leave my D800 power switch "on" even with a lens that doesn't have VR, it will drain the power indication bar much faster after 2 or 3 hours.

Is this normal? The only way to prevent the batteries from this accelerated discharge is by turning the camera on and off constantly in between shoot. Are there any other settings that you can recommend to maximize the battery charge? Thank you.


Regards,

Glenn
