Play of Cups & Light

What do you need for a good photograph? Subject? Light? A big yes indeed but don’t forget the camera itself. A good photograph knows no camera. It doesn’t matter if it’s your cheap cellphone or the pricey DSLR. You need to have it with you every-time & everywhere you go. It’s the only way you won’t miss great photographs & succeed in improving as a photographer.

Battery Monitor in Canon DSLR

Canon DSLR’s offer a way to monitor your battery. A feature unknown to many. It is a simple but effective system. It lets you know whether the battery requires to be replaced. It also provides the number of shots taken since the battery was inserted.

To access this feature, simply go under the menu option “Battery Info” on your Canon DSLR. Once within, you will be able to see the battery inserted along-with shots taken and its health. Now press ‘Info’ & then select register. Now your battery will be registered and you can monitor it time and again. This way you can register multiple batteries. This also helps when you swap batteries with someone and are unable to identify the two, as the batteries are registered by the system via their unique serial number. This might not work if you are using third party batteries which do not have the smart chip within. I always recommend to use original spares from the manufacturer.
