Based on experience.
Shooting in countries with high heat and humidity the fans run constantly at full speed. The batteries last .45 - 1.5 hours. You can get 2 shots in the bag at the most.
In cooler climates like we have in the UK I get 2.5-3 hours.
I've just tried booting the computer from an external drive and shooting tethered. The fans barely come on at all compared to booting from the internal where they run cycles at full speed.
I stand corrected, thanks for the info.
