    Default Help on 505

    Hi all..

    Just came to know about this website.. and I must say.. very Informative !!

    But I have a small problem..

    I have a Sony F505 .. the battery drains off very fast.. Usually one battery can last me only about a year ..

    Sent my camera in for service... but was returned to me without any charges cause they cannot find the fault and say that it is my battery problem.. but this was my second battery.. and it lasted me only for about 9 months !!

    Any advise..

    Btw .. my girlfriend just bought a A40 .. very happy with it casue compact flash is so cheap and it uses AA batteries..

    So .. me now no fun lioa

    Do you usually discharge your battery before charging them .. me nornally do not.. will this affect the battery life ??

    I usually shoot until the batt drained out.. as for those half-used ones, I just charge it as it is. Never discharge any batt purposely before, it works fine for me though. I have no idea whether it will affect the batt life or not, but lithium usually should have no problem. You have a strange problem with your batt.
