Going outside to capture natural views is a fun activity you can do in the weekend. This activity may force you to think about maximizing the power of your camera’s battery because you know that it could be impossible to recharge the battery at the moment. Therefore, developing a good habit of saving the power of the camera’s battery is the best option for you.
It is important to make sure that you set the camera into power save mode. Try to get the information on the manual book you have. To afford greater save, you should make sure that you turn the LCD off at the idle time. Letting the LCD on means using great amount of unnecessary power from the battery. Besides, you can set the LCD screen to be at low brightness as long as it is visible for you. In addition, if it is possible, using viewfinder will be better rather than using the LCD while capturing an image.
For your good habit, you should not playback the pictures you have taken frequently. It is totally useless. You can do it at home at the time you really need to evaluate the results of your photographs. Furthermore, when you are not going to use your camera for a week or more, please take the battery out of your camera and keep it in cool but dry room. When you do the activities outside in a cold weather, keeping the camera warm by taking it inside your jacket will be helpful to save the battery power.
