Storing Camera between Shoots8209

Matt19 private msg quote post Address this user
Hi All,

Just looking for some feedback regarding long term storage of your camera. Do you recharge after every job or leave as is and charge the night before? I am asking because I had always charged to full when a job was complete and then put on a shelf until I was ready to shoot again. That being said when I went to check the battery status it was down to nothing (sat for months). Any feedback/suggestions appreciated. Currently the battery is at 3 hours and 52 minutes. Do the batteries get a memory if you charge without letting deplete? Thanks!!!

Spending $250.00 to protect my $2,500 to $4,000.00 Camera is necessary. You will get caught in the rain eventually and humidity just about gives any software driven device a problem eventually.

Get a waterproof pelican unit with the moisture pack similar to the ones you see in shoes or medicine. Had my camera close to a year. Scanned a lot. Run battery till it’s basically out or close to it. Then recharge. Never had any issues and holds charge very well.

I have multiple different cases from Canon and the default configurations of the cases put the camera in different orientations in each. More tips are also here
