p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · D850 battery life; Airplane on or off.


Hi,
Airplane mode on vs off.
When I had my D500, I kept Airplane mode "on" because it would drain the battery even when the camera was off.
Does anyone know if the D850 has the same problem?
Airplane mode has been switched to on in my D850 from the day I received it.
I would love to be able to use snapbridge Sometimes, I just don't know how much it will affect my battery life.
Thanks.

Not sure why.

Why not turn the bluetooth on when you want to use snapbridge and leave it off otherwise? Seems simple enough.

What do you mean killing batteries? How many shots are you getting?

Yes, and many times i forgot and killed the battery on the D500.
It would be nice to be able to leave it airplane off and forget about it.

I haven't kept an eye on it.
Sorry, I didn't mean to be/sound so dramatic.
I am shooting full wedding days with this and a d750
primary is d850
I am getting through most of the day on one battery, there isn't a problem.
I am just seeing the battery at half power on other days, when I'm not used to.
It may just be that although I dual wield, I'm biased towards the d850 right now!

you need to turn the Airplane service ON in order to have both WiFi and BT off. with them constantly trying to search and connect yes your battery will have a shorter lifespan.

Mine: Airplane mode ON, fully charged last Sunday, as of now 882 photos and 80% remaining.

Edit: Woops SORRY, 382 (not 882, I got hung up on that 8), sorry. But 14 hours and still show 80% remaining, no draining.

What I have noticed with the D850 and more so with the D500 is that if you take a lot of photos in a short time such as at a wedding or event the battery will last for well over 1000 clicks. If you take a few every day or two, the battery level will drop more than on older cameras. Keeping the camera in airplane mode on will reduce that drain.

Airplane mode on a camera?? either I've become wayyy too old fart, or I just miss the simplicity of the D700/D3/Df...

Airplane mode on, over 2700 shots on one charge - and it wasn't even the new EN-EL 15a battery, just a regular En-EL15.

Nope, 14 bit RAWs. Lot of action stuff.

My D500 eats up 3% of the battery in the first 24 hours even if I take no photos. Then it drops to ~1% per day Whatever it is searching for I hope it finds it. SOON Now the D850 does it too?
