Batteries
« on: September 15, 2012, 12:29:09 AM »
How long batteries are available for a typical DSLR model?

Do you mean:

1. How many years will they continue to sell spare batteries
2. How many minutes/hours/shots will a battery power the camera for
3. How many years/charge cycles can I expect my battery to last before I need a new one

?

Yes. Option 1. I meant, "How many years will they continue to sell spare batteries" :D

For as long as there is a demand for them.  Seriously. Even though they will upgrade cameras and change batteries, if there are enough t3i's out there (and any other camera that uses that exact battery) using them, they will continue to make them for sale for a long time.
Take your camera with you dammit. You can't take your next "best photo" if your camera is sitting at home in the bag, now can you?

Yes, you can be sure they'll sell them for at least 20 years; after that, there will be a company "on the internet" (whatever that means in 20 years) that sells pattern batteries for antique cameras. And if you're really worried, I think there are battery grips that run on AA's aren't there? I think they'll sell AA's for ever LOL

Eventually, they will be fusion reactors designed and made in the size and shape of AA batteries, but they will still be that size :)
You are young. Life has been kind to you. You will learn.

Get with the Trekkies Zman...Dilithium Crystals will rule the the 3D/hologram cameras of the future. (specifically the t586i's)  ;D
