    Hi all

    I am evaluating a lot of aspects of a D700 Nikon set for me.

    I just cannot find information regarding the autonomy of a D700 with grip and 8 x AA batteries since I want to have the option for fast (8fps) shooting - I know it will depend on the battery capacity, but, I would like to have some idea what to expect.

    Any info will be helpfull.

    Just found this :

    Below is a breakdown -- provided by Nikon -- of the battery life of the D700 in various configurations versus the D3.

    • D700 with one EN-EL3e 1000 shots CIPA / 2500 shots Nikon.
    • D700 with MB-D10 + one EN-EL3e approx. 1000 shots CIPA / 2500 shots Nikon Measurement Standard.
    • D700 with MB-D10 + one EN-EL4a approx. 1900 shots CIPA / 4300 shots Nikon Measurement Standard.
    • D700 with MB-D10 + eight AA batteries approx. 700 shots CIPA / 1000 shots Nikon Measurement Standard.

    • CIPA standard for EN-EL4a for D3 is 4300 shots (Nikon Measurement Standard is 4700 shots)

    I use the MB-10 with rechargeables and get 700 easily.
  6. Hi

    I use Sanyo Eneloop rechargeables (2000 mAh) and get 3,500 to 5,000 shots per charge on my D300.

    Lot of CH-shots, rare chimping and non-VR-lenses (or set to "off").

    I use Duracell 2650Ma AA's and can easily get over 1200, shooting RAW and hardly any chimping or VR.
