Quote: Can I ask those that have bought third party batteries for a 7D whether you have lost the 'battery status' indicator on the LCD top display.
I use the ones from 7dayshop.com in my 7D, the battery status is displayed but the battery remaining indicator in the menu isn't always accurate. For instance it often reads 100% even though the top LCD status indicates half used.
Switching the menu on and off a few times sometimes updates the menu display for the amount of charge remaining.

Justin, thanks for your answer. It looks like things have moved on a little regarding the 7D but I suspect the major companies will continue to try and build in things to force the customer to buy only their accessories.
