I simply don't understand what they say about those 470 shots per charge. Okay, there may be an element of marketing lie, but my battery is way, way beyond that. I've read a recent discussion here on what exactly consitutes a deviation from advertized , but my case is 50 or 60 shots at best before warning that the battery is about to collapse. This is criminal. It happened three times now in the short time I owned the camera. I charge it overnight with a 2A charger. I think I saw it telling me it did charge to the full. I put it onto power saving mode and that doesn't make much difference. No flash use to speak of. It is so bad that I think there might be a flaw somewhere, but where? What would make battery leak power and is there a way to find that out? Are there any redundant features in processing the shots which are taking a lot of current? Is using external charger better than the 2A charger provided? 4 hours for a charge is also a pretty poor performance. This is by far the biggest bug I've got about this camera described as so good and powerful. My 3 year old Canon of equal size and abilities manages hundreds of shots without anyone even mentioning this as a big milestone.
