Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Powering up, part of Learning the Nikon D600 and D610.
- Not to overstate the obvious…but your camera needs power in order to run.…While there are adapters to plug the camera…into the wall, most of the time you can run…the camera off of a rechargeable battery.…It's a good idea to make sure those batteries are…fully charged before you use the camera for the first time.…You can do this with the battery…charger that came with your camera.…Now remember, it's pretty simple.…Just slide the battery all the way in,…lining up the contacts until that clicks.…You'll then plug this into the cord…and plug it into the wall.…While the battery charges, the lights will flash slowly.…
When it's completely charged, the light will turn solid.…Unlike older rechargeable batteries, you don't have…to drain these batteries completely before recharging.…This means that you can tap them off…before you go on along shooting trip.…It's also a good idea to pick up a spare battery or two…if you shoot a lot or if you're going to be shooting video.…Now, from time to time, you're going to want…to drain these batteries all the way…
