    I guess that's possible ... they are batteries I got with the 5DIV so they are a couple years old ... they seem to charge normally and register as full in the camera but I have not specifically tested them for voltage or amperage.

    For whatever reason, it is part of the spec that you need LP-E6NH batteries for 12 fps. I just noticed you also need to be 1/1000th of faster on the shutterspeed.
    I went to that info in the manual as well and tried multiple settings of all parameters even shutting off AF with a high shutter speed at f/4 and a fully charged battery and could not get the highest speed mechanical shutter .... the indicator blinks. I was shooting from inside the house where ambient temp is not an issue

    I am not certain of the exact mechanical shutter speed I am getting with the old batteries... it is very adequate for my bird set up .... I would estimate maybe 6-8 per second ( again this is a total guess ).

    The electronic shutter does not seem at all significantly reduced .... but I have not made any specific measurements of it either.

    And about the new battery. Last night finally was good night for northern lights aka me shooting timelapse. After 2500 images i changed battery but still had 1 block left on indicator, so i quess on not so freezing weather you can shoot close to 3k images with one battery. This is quite nice ramp up from the older model.

    Wow --- sweet! I'm really looking forward to seeing your timelapse (or even some stills). I saw that the aurora forecast was looking very good so I went out with a few friends to a site that I've always wanted to shoot. However we were foiled by clouds... the bane of aurora shooters. Stayed out until 2:00 am so I'm chugging extra coffee today
