So thats why the 6d has pathetic battery life compared to any rebel or the 60d. great
My 6d's battery life is just fine. I don't leave GPS enabled unless I'm actively shooting, and I rarely use the wi-fi. The other day, with GPS enabled, I took 1300 shots on an outing (yeah a bit of spraying and praying...) and had over 50% battery left when I got back.
With more sporadic use, I find I easily get 400 or so shots before I charge the battery. I usually charge it when it's around 50%.
So if you're getting pathetic battery life compared to a Rebel (I have an XS, and it does not compare), then I'm guessing your 6d is defective. Either that, or you leave GPS and/or wifi on...
