NC Talk:

I am a camera lover and I have tried Canon 7D Mark II, Nikon D500 and Canon 80D. As far as Image quality goes I will rank Nikon D500 as the best camera, after that Canon 80D sensor performance is indescribable (due to the on chip AD converter the noise level is really low) and lastly Canon 7D Mark II.

Nikon D500 and Battery Problem

New Camera D500 image

According to some latest reports coming from Nikon D500 users the camera is showing issues with the third party battery as well as with Nikon original battery (drainge problem)

Multiple reports coming different forum but the major source is dpreviewforum in which many of Nikon D500 camera owners reporting that camera showing some batteries issue with the third party batteries, may be Nikon done some technical tweak or changes to avoid the use of such batteries, however we haven’t received any sort of official confirmation rebated to third parties battery of battery drainage issue (motioned below)

Users complaining about third party issue

“My Nikon D500 will not recognize 3rd party batteries (e.g. Hahnel) which my D810 accepts quite happily.”

“It seems the new D500 cannot use 3rd party batteries. Tested my new D500 with 3rd party/oem battery and the camera flashes the battery bar a few times then shuts off. Battery was full and verified working with other cameras. This behavior was tested on two different D500 cameras. Original batteries worked fine.”

Users complaining about battery drainage issue

With a fully charged Nikon EN-EL15 battery in my D500 after 5 shots it showed having a 64% charge level remaining. The problem may be in the reading of the charge level being inaccurate or there may be something internal to the camera that is draining the battery. With a similar problem with the D300 a firmware update fixed it.

I have had my D500 for two days, and have not shot a lot of images, yet, because I have been studying the menus and manual, and learning the differences and enhancements over my D300, but even so, I have been surprised at how quickly the battery meter showed less than 50% remaining.

I must assure you again that the problem is limited to few cameras and not all Nikon D500 is affected by the issue. Several photographers are also saying that everything s working fine after the purchase of the camera and they haven’t noticed any issue.

Will update you soon as we get any new information do follow Nikon D500 page for further updates || If you already own a Nikon D500 camera than you must see some of our Lens recommendation for the camera.
