Power eating Pig for EOS-M ?
« on: December 31, 2013, 12:28:43 PM »
Dear Friends.
Past week, I have the New Beautiful EOS-M with 22 MM Lens and Accessories, Yes, I fell in love this tiny babe again and again.
But , My Canon battery for this EOS-M are not hold good Number of Photos, I have  2 Canon LP-E12, 875 mAh, and Plus 2 of Wasabi LP-E12 , 1100 mAh.
Yes, For Canon just 35-40 Photos ( The Manual of Canon say = 200 Photos), and Wasabi = 60-80 Photos for each Fully Charge battery.
 Any way that I can save the Power of Camera, by set less time of LCD , and Less time of Power shut down ???
Thanks.
If Not, I have to buy 4 more Wasabi Batteries.

Wow, that's all you're getting out of the Canon battery?  I think I'm getting well over 100 shots with mine and actually hesitated to get a spare until I heard that they don't last too long.  I'm just shooting stills but the battery definitely lasts more than 40 shots for me.  I'm sorry to hear about your experience.  FYI, mine is from Australia (yes, I was surprised, too) - I bought it from 1SaleaDay.com with the 18-55, 22, and 90EX all in one kit.

Mr. Surapon.

I think it's normal for this little guy which has no viewfinder and runs display all the times.
I took this guy on a trip. One battery was last around 2 hours with around 150 shots.
Have to spare another battery and I'm thinking to buy the third one very soon.

Another case. I used this M for video recording. A fully charged battery was gone within 1 hour continuous recording.

I tried it today with my 85 f1.2L with continuous AF on.  Hahahaha..was almost hard to hold the thing.  The AF motor torqued the camera all over the place.  I would expect about 15 minutes of battery with that combo.  It worked though but worked better with 1 shot only.

Last friday, I attached an old 28-105 (kit lense came with EOS 5e) to this M for a sports day event, the autofocus kept working oddly. I ended up losing all battery in just 30 mins. Didn't know what happen because other lenses seem work just fine.
I assumed that this lense was too old. (almost 20 years old)

Dear friend,  jsiras
YES, From Our Friend Mr. fsgray's recommendation " Make sure Continuous AF is turned off.

Yes, After I do, Now I can shoot  minimum 150 Photos on each charge.
Please try with your 28-105 mm Lens again----The Power that EOS-M use , Most of them Hunt for the Right AF in Continuous Mode.
Good Luck.
