      I am a professional filmmaker, and use my camera in upwards of 14 or 15 hours a day sometimes. I needed a second battery for my C100. This has worked perfect on 2 batteries I have easily been able to make through the days.

      These batteries are great. They run 3-4 hours on a c100. They have LED indicators. I will buy more of these as I need them in the future.

        I got this as a second battery for my c100 and what can I say, this thing is just built solid, gives me 3-4 hours of filming, is not heavy, and charges pretty fast! SOLID PRODUCT. I decided to go with this instead of the bigger and bulkier version since I do steadicam and I wanted the weight and balance to stay the same when changing batteries, I didn't have to worry about one more thing. Hope this review helped! go and buy one!

        Comments about Canon BP-955 Lithium-Ion Battery Pack (5200mAh):

        Yes, it's expensive but it lasts long! I prefer this over the larger Canon BP-975 as it doesn't stick out of the body on the C100.

          These are some nice batteries. Long life, reliable life indicator. That's it. Don't use off brand, this is worth it. I opted for the standard size over the larger battery because I wanted my c300's battery door to close and keep out the grime of the world.

          I got this as an extra battery for my Canon C100. I've learned my lesson with buying knock off batteries, so I thought I would just buy a name brand this time. Works just like the OEM that I received with the camera. Just a little expensive though.

            I have two of the BP-955 and one of the BP-975. More than enough for a full day of work. I could have gotten by with just one 955 and one 975 but I'm paranoid with the fact that at some point a charge is bound to fail and I need a back up. Great long lasting batteries. I wish they were a bit cheaper but the cost is pretty comparable to other camera systems.

                Bought this as a back-up for the battery that originally came with our Canon C300. Same battery as the stock battery. Good life, lets the door close on the battery compartment.

                  This battery is great. This is the second battery I have for the C100which makes it perfect for shooting all day. It's almost a must to have a second battery backup.

                              Pro video applications on my c300. I feel like it runs out pretty quickly. But its small and lightweight, and allows the battery door to close unlike the larger battery.

                                The BP-955 battery is very useful in event type projects. I shot for about seven hours at a wedding reception (on and off) and only used about 3/4 of the battery life. Nice, easy to use battery level indicator on the back of the battery.
