I am a proud owner of 7D for the past 2.5 yrs and have done many trips and shooting with that.
I am not using any battery grip. Have 2 Canon original battery with me.
Fromyesterday night I am getting an error "Cannot communicate with battery". It is same described in the below link also :-
I am using Original Canon battery and I have tried with both of them but no result.
As per User Guide ,
If the message "Cannot communicate with battery" is displayed when checking the battery status, select [OK] and continue shooting. Please note that the battery level indicator will appear blank.
My concern is :-
1. If I ignore that and continue shooting , will it create any problem to the Camera functionality ?
2. Wil the battery drain fast due to that ?
I am Ok with not displaying the battery infor as of now ( which I will repair by Canon) but need to confirm that the battery functionality will remain as usual. I will be travelling for a birding trip soon and I due to short time I dont want to send it to repair...
