    The Sony Infolithium L Series batteries have always been a staple in my video accessories collection. With the addition of the NP-F970 I can eliminate the need to change batteries so often and when I need to pack light I can carry fewer spare batteries. All of this is due to the significant increase in battery life as compared to previous Infolithium L models. Simply put, you get the same unmatched quality of an Infolithium L series battery with the added benefit of longer life. The only downside could be the added size of the battery. If using the battery to power hotshoe mounted lights or lcd screens, the battery size could interfere very slightly with your ability to grip the camera handle. This would mainly impact a camera user with very large hands. If you need a new battery or you are looking to add a backup battery to your arsenal, this is the battery to buy.

      I love the extended time on the life of this battery. It gives me freedom from worrying about having to swap the battery out in the field while I shooting with my incredible Sony NEX FS100. I couldn't be happier with it''s performance.

          For the money we wasted on knock offs and 'compatible' batteries, we could have bought a few of these and saved ourselves the grief.

                  The good thing about buying a Sony is that the will just last longer than the other unknown brands. Yes, the price is higher but It is just a better battery because it will continue working after a few years.

                                  I charged this battery fully and then used it to shoot a basketball game. I shot intermittently for about two hours and used very little of the battery.I then operated on battery power to digitize clips and then recharged the battery.It was quite quite to recharge.

                                    I have bought and use 4 of these batteries everyday. My oldest one is about 8 years old and just now wearing down. I have bought the off brands too and don't last for 6 months.

                                      Sony's industry standard battery. Tons of gear uses these. They work!
