Bryan at The-Digital-Picture has just tested the Canon EOS R (B&H Photo Video/Amazon/Adorama)’s battery life. According to Bryan, the EOS R’s battery life seems much better than advertised. It can shoot over 1,000 images after fully-charged. This is a good news for Canon EOS R.
My first fully-charged LP-E6N battery provided 1510 images with 3% battery charge remaining. That is a very impressive number for any camera, though many short high-speed frame rate bursts surely aided that experience. Still impressive was the second full charge delivering over 1100 images with 9% remainging for an expected life of well over 1300 images. Again, some short bursts were captured, but many slow and carefully-aligned landscape images were also captured. The third charge yielded 560 images at 17% battery life remaining for an expected life of approximately 670 images. This set of images was captured in higher battery drain situations that including waiting for the perfect moments to occur at a low light event.
