The SLR is an F5? Or why else would you bring 5 kilo in spare batteries? ;)

In the end I survived on one battery per camera. Now that I learned that I have to use "Li-ion20" not "Li-ion01" in my D500 I get a lot more milage.

Is it that bad? I have 88% left in the D3 after 144 photos (of which I took 100 on the ADAC parking lot ;) and my F still has full capacity :p

Wish I had had a bit more time to chat with you and try to pry that D500 from your fingers for a spell. Maybe next time :)

Thomas, it was nice tomeet you as well.

Buddy: Just ask, most of us are open to gear swapping, lens testing etc.

The milage of the big cams like D3, D4, D5 is in the several thousands of RAWs if one skips image review.

The milage of the D500 should be above 1000 with a single well conditioned battery of the "Li-ion20" kind.

The battery compartment of the D500 weighs 504g which is more than the whole package of the Fuji X100T including battery and card with 468g. I chose to leave MB-D17 at home.

Yet, for a day of birding the D500 battery compartement loaded with 8x"Eneloop Pro 2500" gives me something in the range of 10.000 shutter actuations (many more than I need).

Lumi is eating lenses to take pictures directly through the eyes. Great ! and clever. Future solution to pack light when you decide to go in photo trips :-)
