Have you ever wondered if using Nikon’s Vibration Reduction was hurting your battery life – and by how much? This is of special concern for the Nikon Z series cameras since, when you have VR turned on, it runs anytime the viewfinder or rear LCD is active, so it’s critical to know!
I did some timed tests for this four-minute video to determine how much of a draw VR is on your battery – and the results will surprise most viewers! In addition, I also address whether having VR on all the time puts you in danger of wearing the system out prematurely.
A must-see for every Nikon shooter – and I’m confident the guidance applies to most other brands. 🙂

I agree, not an issue to leave VR on.
I never really thought about this, thanks for performing the tests and for the very useful info.
Happy to help 🙂
