...the battery life is ridicuously short...
One culprit I have found so far...the battery life is ridicuously short...and I really do not want to get the power grip! Firstly, I do not like the weight, secondly it does not look good and thirdly, for changing all three batteries including the one in the camera you have to remove the grip all the time. Guess I have no option but to carry three batteries around.Stef.
One good tip though, not battery related: set the camera to jpeg, then turn NR to off, set it back to raw and you will get a higher burst rate as NR also happens for the in raw embedded jpeg files.2 week trip rannari...you need to take about 30 (!) batteries for that! I go easily through two (!) a day!
... does the A99's LCD have the extra bright Sunny weather setting like the RX100? It eats battery power like mad.
