K10D and SR question....

How bad does SR reduce battery life? If it doesn't impact it that much, why wouldn't one leave it on full time?

Do most of you leave it on all the time or not?

It shouldn't be noticeable on the battery life. Only time I turn it off is when I put the camera on a tripod (as stated in the user manual). If you use the mirror lock up function, SR is automatically turned off.

I believe the reason for turning SR off with a tripod is that the SR system looks for motion even when there is none, and may *create* motion blur when mounted on a tripod.

what you can turn it off ?!?!?!

unless the camera is held or resting so it is rock solid or I'm panning high motion shots it's on without a second thought.

Yep. Mine is on almost all the time. I use the K100, and crv-3 batteries, but I usually get a good 1500 shots out of a set, so if the SR is hurting my power consumption some, it's not enough that I care!
