SL2 Battery Conservation

Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

Hi,

Day 2 with my SL2 and I was shocked with how quickly the battery was being depleted, realised that I had the LCD screen set to auto, I since changed to EVF Extent.

Was wondering if you have any tips (settings) to prolong battery life.

p.s.

I love my SL2, it's what I have been missing in photography for so long (since I sold my M9 over 2 years ago), the feel in my hand, the EVF, which was my biggest concern coming from M9 and D850, even the sound of the shutter is a joy! the simple layout that lets you get on with the act of taking a photo...

Currently it is paired with the Sigma 45 2.8, what a little gem! Next week I will be getting the APO Summicron 90mm and I think this will elevate my experience yet again.

I rarely look at the screen. I don't chimp.

The SL2 is my dream fantasy camera.

Make sure the refresh rate is set to 60fps not 120.  Don’t use iFS. 

obviously, if you need these features turn them on.  But if you don’t, it will save your battery to have them turned off.

Turn off prefocus. I need it rarely and it makes a big difference. For longer trips (several days) buy an external USB PD battery bank.
