Hi, I know this has been discussed already on this forum, usually from a point of view of "I have got a new 6D and the battery just goes flat when I am not using it", well it is pretty well know that the GPS does this even when the camera is off. I for one like the GPS feature, but find the battery issue really irritating.
What I would like to know if how other people handle it, these are the options I see:
- Turn off GPS
- Live with it and make sure you always have a spare battery
- Remove battery when camera is not in use or leave battery door open
- Install Magic Lantern as it has features that address this issue.
To me all these are work arounds. The remove battery option is what I am doing right now, however I am concerned that it will drain the battery cell (if there is one) quicker.
I have delayed getting a grip for this because of this issue as it will just end up draining both batteries if I forget to remove them. Third party batteries are hard to find in NZ and genuine ones are pricey, so more batteries is an expensive option.
