    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 am an event videographer/editor and have used ONLY Sony authentic batteries with my Sony Z5. Recently I tried to save a few bucks by buying a knock off and won't ever do that again. ONLY REAL Sony batteries work the way they are supposed to event the price is extreme, I don't fear that the battery will die on me in the middle of a shoot like the imitations DO!

                  With my Sony HXR cameras you have to have real Sony batteries. They do not read right or charge right. With my DSR 250's I could use knock off batteries just fine. The cost a lot but they work well and accurate.

                  Spend the extra $ and buy this factory sealed genuine Sony NP-F970 L-Series battery from B&H. Too many fake chinese knock-offs on @ and falsely advertised originals by a host dishonest online vendors. B&H is the real deal. You get what you pay for with this Sony battery. Power up for hours without the need for multiple battery change outs at unopertune times. You won't be disappointed in the performance of this battery or with the consistent top notch customer service and lightning fast shipping that B&H alway delivers time and time again. Quit thinking about it. Do it! You can thank me later.

                    When it comes to camcorder batteries, I've found that it's a terrible idea to buy those "affordable" off-brand batteries. These sony batteries may cost more, but they are incredible! In my NX5u they have an incredible battery life, and I've not had any problems with them! If you need a reliable battery that's going to work when you need it, these are well worth the money. They take a while to charge, but that's the only downside.

                    The genuine Sony battery packs deliver hours of use and reliability. I have used the knock offs battery packs to save some money. A couple have literally fell apart. With the genuine Sony batteries you get a more accurate reading of time left. Plus these batteries will use the Quick Mode on the VQ-1050 charger.

                      When performance and longevity is critical, I NOW only trust the Sony brand. This replaces an off brand that began to rapidly discharge after 45 minutes. I have the Sony NX5.

                          I look to these batteries as reliable and long lasting - I have had good luck with them in the past. They are workhorses.
                          I (just got this one and) use it on a Sony NX-3, but have used them before on similar cameras.
                          The main reason I do not give them full stars is that Sony and other brands have occasionally put small light up indicators on the battery cases that let you know the approximate charge at the push of a button - without attaching the battery and powering on the camera. I prefer those ones - the indicator has saved me from running off with a low battery on a few cases - especially when more than one person is using the gear or handing off gear to others.

                            Comments about Sony NP-F970 L-Series Info-Lithium Battery Pack (6300mAh):

                            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.
