We have a new D5500 that is a couple of weeks old. All the reviews I read before getting this camera stated that it had better battery performance then the D5300, it should take about 800 photos.
The best I can get is about 300 before the battery is flat. I just did a mixture of day and night shots, no flash and got just around 300 photos.
I don't do any editing on the camera. Touch screen is auto off, use it to look at photos taken to check they are some what right.
With some live view use.
Those who have a D5500 home many photos do you get out of a battery average?
And do different settings vastly effect battery life? Bar the obvious of running the rear screen full time.
