    Nikon D90 Battery Drain during Video

    I’m a professional wedding photographer in Chennai and have good experience in the photography field. I am getting into Vlogging and have the Rode Go External Mic for good audio quality.


    I have the following cameras.
    1. NikonAW 130 – Point and Shoot, Weather Proof camera with Built-In-Mic.
    a. No support for external mic makes audio an issue.

    2. NikonD90 – DX Format camera – Provision to attach external mic
    With LiveView on my battery drains in just 5 mins.
    Lack of autofocus for video –requires me constantly adjust as per subject.
    That defeats video for a Vlog setup

    3. NikonD810 – FX-Format camera – Provision to attach external mic
    Too big for a VLOG
    I would rather use it purely for high-end photography

    I am particularly interested to know about D90 and D810 for the Vlog Set up
    Why does a D90 battery drain this fast for video – is something wrong with my battery? It hardly lasts for 5 mins. The battery bar starts blinking and the camera goes off. Tried cleaning the terminals, recharging to full state etc. There is no issue however when doing photo shoots. It works just fine, as I use manual focus andLiveView off. It lasts through the day.

    Please advise.
    Thank you so much.

    Last for only 5 mins is crazy. I guess there is some problems on your battery.

    I think that there might be some issue with the battery due to which the problem is occurring.

    Luckily batteries are inexpensive to replace. Is it the original battery that came with the camera?
