      Im used to shooting at about 5-7 FPS, I would average around 1100-2500 Shots per charge and it would last a long time. Now with the New D500, its at 10 FPS, and it uses a faster SD/XQD card system, a higher voltage processor and more advanced AF systems. Im only getting around 900-1200 shots... but it only lasts half the time because its double the frame rate.

      How many batteries did you get?

        I ordered 2 with an external charger. gives me 3 total.

        I have yet to run out during a day, but ive come close some days when I was camping. most shots I took when camping was 500 in a day, and I ended with about 20% battery left. thats a lot of the screen being on too though, and the EVF surprisingly uses more battery than the big lcd screen on the back, apparently. and I almost solely use the EVF

        my camera can do 11 fps, but I dont really do those kinds of shots. I just take lots of photos with the hopes of having 10% turn out okay, and 5% turn out great lol. still learning this camera and the lenses I have for it.

                                      That's a great price. I got the 7000 series for my living room. I do like it better than my old Samsung.

                                          I paid $890 or something.

                                          Not liking it.. I'm getting some screen tearing during fast motion, especially on cartoons.

                                            Calibrate it? I have played a total of one hour of PlayStation so I don't know if I have that issue.

                                              I've screwed around with the aquamotion or w.e settings and it helped a bit but I'm still seeing it. Haven't played PS4 on it yet and I feel like that would show it more.
