Battery Life
The number of shots that can be taken with fully-charged batteries varies with the 
condition of the battery, temperature, and how the camera is used. In the case of AA 
batteries, capacity also varies with make and storage conditions; some batteries can 
not be used. Sample figures for the camera and optional MB-D14 multi-power 
battery pack are given below.
• CIPA standard
One EN-EL15 battery (camera)
: Approximately 900 shots
One EN-EL15 battery (MB-D14)
: Approximately 900 shots
Six AA alkaline batteries (MB-D14)
: Approximately 450 shots
• Nikon standard
One EN-EL15 battery (camera)
: Approximately 3900 shots
One EN-EL15 battery (MB-D14)
: Approximately 3900 shots
Six AA alkaline batteries (MB-D14)
: Approximately 1300 shots
1 Measured at 23 °C/73.4 °F (±2 °C/3.6 °F) with an AF-S NIKKOR 24–85mm f/3.5–4.5G ED VR 
lens under the following test conditions: lens cycled from infinity to minimum range and 
one photograph taken at default settings once every 30 s; flash fired once every other 
shot. Live view not used.
2 Measured at 20 °C/68 °F with an AF-S NIKKOR 24–85mm f/3.5–4.5G ED VR lens under the 
following test conditions: image quality set to JPEG basic, image size set to M (medium), 
shutter speed 
s, shutter-release button pressed halfway for three seconds and focus 
cycled from infinity to minimum range three times; six shots are then taken in succession 
and monitor turned on for five seconds and then turned off; cycle repeated once standby 
timer expires.
The following can reduce battery life:
• Using the monitor
• Keeping the shutter-release button pressed halfway
• Repeated autofocus operations
• Taking NEF (RAW) photographs
• Slow shutter speeds
• Using a GP-1 GPS unit
• Using an Eye-Fi card
• Using a WU-1b wireless mobile adapter
• Using VR (vibration reduction) mode with VR lenses
To ensure that you get the most from rechargeable Nikon EN-EL15 batteries:
• Keep the battery contacts clean. Soiled contacts can reduce battery performance.
• Use batteries immediately after charging. Batteries will lose their charge if left
