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)?? :think:
and is it necessary for me to carry both the batterys when i go overseas for abt 3 weeks?? :confused:


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 :)

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?
