IN­CRED­I­BLE POWER

CAM­ERA MAN­U­FAC­TUR­ERS AL­WAYS AIM TO PUT MORE POWER IN OUR HANDS. BUT COM­PRO­MISE IS NEC­ES­SARY

Australian T3 - - STATE OF THE ART -

We all want to squeeze as many photos and/or videos out of our cam­era bat­tery as pos­si­ble, but, then again, the smaller form fac­tor of a mirrorless cam­era ne­ces­si­tates a smaller bat­tery pack than those found in com­pet­ing DSLRs. So it’s no sur­prise to find a bat­tery life roughly half that of larger, bulkier in­ter­change­able lens cam­eras you’ll find on the mar­ket. Although around 330 shots is the av­er­age for mirrorless (or ‘com­pact sys­tem‘) cam­eras, cer­tain man­u­fac­tur­ers, such as Canon with its M100, have got around this by in­tro­duc­ing the op­tion of ‘eco’ modes that turn some fea­tures off or in­tro­duce re­stric­tions to eke just a bit more juice and longevity out of a fully charged cell. So if you need that one fi­nal per­fect shot, there’s a chance.
