    I bought two weeks ago a Canon VIXIA HF G30. When I am filming with this camera I have turned off the automatic shut off mode, my camera is running the whole time even when I am not actually filming. This is because I want to be ready filming when something worthwhile is happening. To turn on the camera again, to boot he camera takes just too long until it is ready to film. This takes a lot of power from the battery and the stock battery just did not cut it. When the camera is turned on the stock battery lasts only about one hour. Not enough. I got the BP-828 and what a difference. With the BP-828 my camera runs for 2.5 hours. That's enough for me for one video shoot. Canon should have included this BP-828 from the beginning with the camera as a stock battery. the G30 is an expensive camera and to add another $50 to the total price for the bigger battery would not have been unreasonable. I will get a second BP-828. The stock battery is not even good enough for me as a backup battery. I need another BP-828. Basically I have no complaints about the BP-828 except that it is big. The view finder of my camera pulls just enough out to compensate for the extra length of the battery. I can really recommend this battery. Canon quality.

    Doesn't last as long on HFG30/XA20

    I'm not blaming the battery so much as I am the camcorder. The HFG30/XA20 are power hungry. I used to last 5hrs of battery life, but now I get less than 3hrs....Read complete review

    I'm not blaming the battery so much as I am the camcorder. The HFG30/XA20 are power hungry. I used to last 5hrs of battery life, but now I get less than 3hrs. I don't even have the wifi function on. What gives?

      This is an outstanding product and very representational of the Canon brand. I used this with my Vixia M41 and didn't think twice about using my power adapter while filming a wedding. Although the price is a bit high, I still highly recommend this battery.

        I just purchased a Canon Vixia G20 and picked up this battery to make sure to have enough recording time for hour long events while using the monitor. The kit battery is 1/3rd the size and will suffice for a good backup. The eye viewfinder pulls out exactly enough to allow for its extra length and the extra weigh is negligible.

                Use this on my XA-10. Once calibrated according to the directions in the XA-10 this battery displays accurately how much time is remaining on the battery and it changes during different modes. For example if playing video it shows one time, if recording with the LCD screen another and if recording using the viewfinder another. This initial calibration takes a long time because it requires fully charging the battery then discharging the battery until completely discharged while in use. Then afterwards the battery will display an accurate reading from then on. Recommend purchasing the CG-800 battery charger it charges the battery in apx 4.3 hours vs. 6.4 hours charging in the camera.

                            Purchased this to have extended capture time with my new Canon HF G30. It works great. I recorded over two hours of video with no issue with this battery.

                            ...than what came with my Vixia HF-G30, so it lasts longer. What else is there to say? Made by Canon, so no compatibility issues.

                              Comments about Canon BP-828 Lithium-Ion Battery Pack (2670mAh):

                              I had this battery for two weeks only so I cannot provide a complete review. But I have been using Canon batteries for my Digital SLR and HV2 Camcorder and they have performed well. I have been using tehse batteries for over 4 years and they are still working great. In my experience Canon Original batteries are reliable and long lasting.
