      Best Possible Battery

      By hotrod

      from Missoula, MT

      Comments about Canon BP-970G Battery Pack - 7.4V, 7200mAh:

      I have purchased several copycat batteries over the years and not one even comes close to the original Canon batteries. This battery holds a charge, lasts a long time and holds up for many years. It is expensive but is well worth the money if you need a battery that lasts for a whole wedding or other event this is the one.

            So far only used it with the Odyssey 7Q. Runs for hours. It's kind of big, but not too bad. Wish it had built-in level meter.

              bought it for my new C100. This is the alternative to the newer version high capacity battery, but price much cheaper and hence a great deal. The only thing you miss is the button for you to check the battery and the array of LEDs, but you can definitely get the battery info from the camera anyway.

                Comments about Canon BP-970G Battery Pack - 7.4V, 7200mAh:

                I purchased one of these for shooting weddings with the XH-A1 series cameras.

                I used to carry 4 batteries to shoot a full wedding. One for the pre-wedding and ceremony... one for the reception... one for my old camera light...and one as a backup in case of a failure.

                With this battery (and replacing my light)... I'm down to two batteries. One 4 hour battery for the pre-wedding and ceremony footage... and this battery for the reception and party afterwards. This battery will freaking run ALL NIGHT. I'm sure if I was on a camera that didn't have to turn a tape drive... it would last much longer.

                This is worth every penny. Before I used to carry a camera bag to support gear. Now... I put everything into a photographers combat vest and have have everything I need and don't have to worry about carrying that bag around any more.

                Now it is a heavy battery, but it's lighter than carrying the multiple batteries it replaces! You also need to plan in advance of your shoot... because it takes almost as much time to charge it as it does to discharge it.

                One other disadvantage... it is sensitive to cold temperatures. At an outdoor shoot at 15 degrees, it only lasted 2 hours. I suspect that most batteries are sensitive to that... but thought I'd point that out.

                I will be buying a couple more of these for my other two cameras... simply because not having to worry about battery life frees you up so you can focus on your filming. Creativity is enhanced in a mind that is not distracted by all the little things that can go wrong! LOL!

                  I bought this as a back up battery for my C100. I was worried because of the alert that states you can not close the batery door. The C100 does not have a battery door so it is not an issue. Much longer battery life then the one that comes with the camera.

                      Great price, great power. I didn't give it 5/5 stars because you are not able to view exact hr meter on it just like with the BP-975. Other than that, great value!

                      It is a heavy battery... I prefer the size of the 955 which still gives you like over 4hrs of filming!

                              Great long life battery you don't need the meters on the 975 since you have an onscreen battery meter on the camera. Save yourself some money!

                              Very long life, takes a while to charge but it's a trade off for the long life. I would definitely recommend this to someone else.

                                Comments about Canon BP-970G Battery Pack - 7.4V, 7200mAh:

                                I have purchased batteries before, most recently a 'knock off' brand to save a few bucks! Boy, what a mistake! With those batteries, brand not being mentioned, I couldn't shoot an entire wedding without having to change battery packs. Fortunately I came around and purchased two of these packs. Well, I was able to shoot an entire wedding and more than half of the following reception. These batteries rock!

                                I would suggest the HP 970G to any and every applicable Canon camera owner. Great job Canon! You are lifesavers.

                                A must for long shoots. Like weddings where you might not have time/or convenience to change the battery. But like all batteries, expensive. And it takes a long time to recharge.
