I have two OEM* batteries for my 1DMkIII

Do you mean Canon-made or "After Market?"

I only use Canon OEM batteries in my 1DsMKIII. They fit well and last forever when shooting pictures.

Take Care,
Cheers, Patrick

I actually thought that Canon did not make ANY of their batteries. That they had an OEM who made them under contract and then the bats were BRANDED Canon.
I was looking to see if anyone was able to buy the OEM batteries from Korea, where I was told they were made under license. In specific if the OEM verion, non-branded did all the requisite reporting of capacity and the like.

For me, the 2,000-shot lifespan of the 1d MkIII battery means I don't need a spare. Hence: yes, I am

So when you say, yes you are you are using the OEM version, not the Canon branded version? Does it have the associated chip that reports total and per charge battery life?

When I refer to OEM, I'm talking about the ones that come with the camera and say Canon on them.

I use the Cheapo Lenmar 1800mAh batteries that give me 3000 shots each on my MkIIn, they fit perfectly, tight and secure, just like my old dead Canon battery that won't hold a charge anymore. ;)
