I think this is happening with my non-Canon battery even when full. I bought it strictly as a backup and have only really used it for the first time last weekend. It was fully charged, but the camera flashes the low-battery indicator.

Have you never wondered if a still image DSLR would be better or cheaper?
This is a purely hypothetical question but I'm guessing many of you have thought about it once or twice.
I'm curious if anyone else would consider a DSLR designed, dedicated and optimized solely for still photography worthwhile / desirable?
Quite simply: If you could get better still images from a camera without video, would you buy it?
- Would you buy it instead of a hybrid model with video features if it produced better still images?
- Would you buy it if the images were the same but it was designed differently for still photography use?
Does anyone else think compromises might exist in hybrid DSLR designs in order to offer HD video on the same sensor?
- Would a sensor designed for dedicated still photography perhaps offer better specs, IQ, sensitivity, speed, [insert other perceived benefit here]?
- How much better would a dedicated still photography camera perform if it didn't have to produce video as well?
- Would the CPU, processing and firmware possibly be less complex, more efficient and stable?
- Would the control layout and ergonomics, menus, etc be easier to use and offer more versatility and/or control?
- Is it possible that video features have delayed R&D while engineers work out new challenges due to the hybrid designs?
- Do you think video increases the price of the camera? Is it logical to think a dedicated still camera might cost slightly less while still offering better images?
Just thought I would throw it out there to chew on. Might make an interesting discussion. Thanks for your time.
On the side note, This is post # 1337.
I can imagine the AF/MF and AF range limiter switches are a little hard to get to in a hurry, esp on a pro body?
Why is someone paying $10k on this f4 and not getting the 400 f2.8 mk.ii ? (Unless they can afford both... )
Thanks a lot!!! those sigma files looks pretty well!!
Btw. I already have seen the photo of the redhead girl making the funny face elsewhere, did you make an review of the lens?? or post it on flickr???
Very easy to touch up onion bokeh in PhotoshopQuite, but do that on hundreds of pictures after returning from a shot?
I know what bokeh is, I know and enjoy onions to the dismay of others, but what is onion bokeh? I know I could google it, but that's too easy.
Ok, I didn't expect you to be *that* lazy :-p ... the Tamron has it, the Canon to a lesser extent: point light sources in the bokeh have rings like you cut an onion in half. Samples:
