    I'm getting a little over 2 hrs still shooting time on the OEM battery. The manual says it should be 3.5 hrs. I have Wasabi spare batteries which are draining even quicker. I've turned off continuous AF. What else should I do to help improve battery life? Thanks!

    The trick is not to take pictures
    ;-)

    Seriously though, if you are not using it, turn off the WiFi.

    It supposedly stays in search mode.

    Thanks, Dave. I put it in airplane mode, will see how it goes!
