Ok let's move on shall we? Get back on topic which is D600. Thank you.
Quick question - how many shots does your typical full charge last?
I seem to notice that my battery use for D600 goes pretty fast though. I don't use live view, and whether my lens had VR or not doesn't seem to make much of a difference. On average, 300 over shots
Maybe others can help you on this? Anyone?
I don't think for a non pro body I've ever managed to squeeze 1000 shots. The only body that was able to deliver me over 1k shot performance was the 1DX. I have 2 original brand new batteries on my D600 and I think the performance is really kind of poor. I think my short experience with the D700 and D800E was much better.
What I do with my cam is just the usual shutter release.. casual/leisure or portraits, no high speed burst and continuous AF and live view/video.
EDIT: takes out my D600 - 246 shots and 44% left.

1. turn image preview off - so that the picture will not show after taking a picture. Only when you press "play" will you see the images.
2. set auto-meter off to a shorter duration.
3. if you are using any wireless card like eyefi or flash air. remove it and try again.
4. turn off VR of lenses and try for a while.
5. remember long exposures also suck battery life more.
BTW, Ming Thein from Malaysia tested the D600 for a while and he achieved 869 shots with 74% battery charge remaining... You can read here: The Nikon D600 review: full frame for the masses? â€“ Ming Thein | Photographer
I have no problems with my battery also. Never noticed how many shots per charge but easily 700 - 1k if no long exposure.
I always have plenty of juice left after very shoot
300 shots is way too low.....
if u keep ur batt in n store the cam for a low time, ur batt power will deplete too...
i tried this...
on a new fresh full charge and i squeeze in 1500 shots usin the interval shooting menu and it was firing at low continous shots.9 pics each time....

Wow 6k for one shoot, whts ur shutter count..?Originally Posted by or1onz
I did about 950 before the red battery alert icon started flashing.
I think AVSquare, your battery might be spoilt.
I took my D600 to Taiwan last Dec and the battery indicator only dropped one bar after 600 shots ... Are you shooting in very cold environment ?
