    Talking Need help with the battery...

    Hi guys, i am a newbie here and this is my first thread.
    I recently brought a Canon 300D DSLR camera
    It came with a free battery, Model : Canon 1390mAh (BP-514).
    I am already using a 1100mAh battery now.
    So ya can anyone tell me how many pics can i take with a fully charged 1390mAh (50% with and 50% without flash)??
    and is it necessary for me to carry both the batterys when i go overseas for abt 3 weeks??


    Thanks

    No experience with the batteries but it's always advisable to carry spare batteries on overseas trip. At least if one battery is not working or lost (touch wood), you have a spare

    Bring all your batteries.
    In digital photography, the 1st fear is "no battery", the 2nd fear is "no memory card".

    Those proprietary Canon batteries used in DSLR and prosumers, apart from Canon brand, are there 3rd party brand as well? Any recommendation on the brands?
