      If you do weddings, and use lights or other equipment -- don't cheat yourself or your clients by being without an extra set of charged batteries. 6 hours additional time! It's not so great to pay right at [$] for two batteries. But the two new ones ran our cameras, and the two previously purchased ones ran the LED lights. People were impressed by our equipment and preparedness.Consider some extra batteries for your bag.

      Great batteries but a bit pricey

      By WillG

      from Wilmington, NC

      Comments about Sony NP-F970 L-series Info-Lithium Battery 2 Pack (7.2v, 6300mAh):

      These batteries have about 3-4 hrs of standby and menu time at least. Recording time is between 1-2 hrs. Closer to 1 hr shooting 4K. They are a bit heavy so can add some unwanted weight and size to monitor set ups but get the job done if you need better battery life than supplied options.

        Comments about Sony NP-F970 L-series Info-Lithium Battery 2 Pack (7.2v, 6300mAh):

        I use these batteries with the Atomos Shogun. They are heavy and durable but hold a ton of power. They do take some time to charge fully. I got them out of the box brand new and charged them to the max and it probably took 10-12 hrs. I don't know if they were completely depleted when I got them out of the box but I assume they were close to it. If not, it probably would take even more time. However, I am currently testing life span in standby mode and it has been 1h4 and 48 minutes and the battery looks to still have about 50% power left. So I would guess this battery will last for up to 3.5 hrs or more in standby and probably 2-2.5 hrs in full use with 4K and audio going. Either way they are much better than the batteries provided with the Shogun.

                You get what you pay for. I have purchased no name versions with the same mah rating in the past for half the price but after a few charges their run time dropped in half. These Sony batteries wont let you down.

                            Im using these batteries for the Sony HVL-LBPB video light. They are long lasting. I have not done a test on them to see how long they last yet. They do seem a bit heavier than I expected, but they are a bigger battery.

                              My last set NP-F970's have started to not hold their charge after nearly 5 years of continous use, so I decided to get a new pair.

                                  I've been using these on various Sony cameras for 10 years. Last week one of my old ones went from half full to dead during a performance. Thank god I had a spare. Now I have two new ones and two spares. Belt and Suspenders. Better believe it.

                                    If you do weddings, and use lights or other equipment -- don't cheat yourself or your clients by being without an extra set of charged batteries. 6 hours additional time! It's not so great to pay right at [$] for two batteries. But the two new ones ran our cameras, and the two previously purchased ones ran the LED lights. People were impressed by our equipment and preparedness.Consider some extra batteries for your bag.
