7D + LP-E6, what a wonderful combo!

Anyone else get great battery performances w/ their LP-E6?

I went to the Miramar Airshow this past Sunday. I showed up with my 7D gripped w/ both batteries reading just at 60% (I also brought backups just in case). 2600+ shots later, I'm still at 22% :lol: Used AI Servo + IS exclusively for the entire day, filled 2x 32gb cards. Also did a fair amount of chimping, trying to delete the clearly OOF photos to free up additional space for the Blue Angels. :p

So I'm guessing if I had started with fully charged batteries (and more CF cards), could probably come away with 6000-7000 shots. That's about 3000-3500 shots per battery.

Thank you Canon engineers! :)

Yes using just a single lp-e6 I can get ridiculously long battery life. I sometimes forget I have a batter because I rarely have to charge it. Even shooting for the school paper I charge maybe once a week.

I'm still very tempted to get one for the 7D, except right now I feel like the total weight over 7D + lens is just about right. But I do love the convenience of having the grip for vertical shots on my 550D.. decisions..

Yep, no live view and minimial chimping they seem to last forever.

Live view really kills performance, though.

LP-E6 isn't the grip, it's the battery. The battery itself is very good. Having two of them is that much better though.

I use a 7D with a grip and get 3000+ shots from 2 batteries often with 30 to 40% spare.

I love the combination. I have a gripped 7D with 2 LP-E6s and the things just won't die! Unbelievable battery life, and I love it.

8670 shots all in RAW from fresh fully charged and the batteries still had 3% and 4% left. None of my lenses had IS.

My best on one battery was 3306 shooting hockey at 8fps. My battery is almost 2 years old now and only shows 2/3 Recharge Performance. I find it doesn't perform nearly as well now.

1500-2000 is is actually very good. In order to get the really high counts I have to be shooting 8fps.

I get around 1300-1400 with the LP-E6, in my 60D. I guess it's harder on batteries. I ALWAYS use IS, chimp, and view up to 100% on the LCD a lot..so that eats away at battery life. I also leave it on for hours at a time, when in the car, etc.. so it's ready if/when i need it. I'm using LV a lot more now, too. Still, very happy with these batteries.. compared to my T2i, but my 1D Mk II is very easy on batteries too. :D
