Re: Canon EOS 7D Battery drain Issue

Hi,

 

I'm having the same problem.  I just got my new Canon 7D Mk II 2 days ago and I did what most excited photographer would do is to charge up that battery.  But low and behold, after a couple of experiments on the battery issue, the battery is discharging even when the camera is off by 10%-25%.  This is terrible.  I hope Canon can fix this.  I love this camera.

 

Rod.

You wrote that you did shot off the camera, not GPS.

 

What about another battery? Same issue?

 

What about other lenses or without a lens? Do you use a Tamron 24-70?

Re: Canon EOS 7D Battery drain Issue

I only tried it with my old Canon 7D Battery to set up the Camera while the new one was charging. But that's about it. Then I swap the new one in once the charging was done.

I use the Canon ESF 17-55 and yes I turned off the camera and disabled GPS.

So try without a lens and also try your older battery.
