I have a Canon 20D that I purchased from another forum member last year. I used it quite a lot for the first several months that I had it, but off and on since May because of some surgery that I had.
Recently, I have been getting it out more often, but I have noticed an issue with either my batteries or the camera that is bugging me.
I took the camera to my son's soccer game today and took a few pictures. After about 20 photos on what supposedly were totally charged batteries, the camera went dead. It was not that cold out... probably in the mid 50's when I started.
I brought the batteries home and put them on the charger and after a few minutes, the charger registered the batteries as fully charged. I put them in the camera and went outside. I snapped about four quick shots with my 400 mm f/5.6L and when I looked at the battery strength indicator after it wrote the shots to the CF card, it had only one indicator lit. I took another shot and turned the camera off. After turning off the camera, a couple of the indicators were still lit on the upper display and the number of photos was flashing.
Has anyone else had any issues like this? The batteries that I was using this particular day are the ones that I got online from Sterlingtek. I have had them since I purchased the camera and I have never had any problems until now.
I have another couple of batteries that I got with the camera, so I am going to make sure those are charged up and try them out later this evening.
