      I recently purchased the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera (BMPCC) to shoot my MFA thesis film, and went ahead and bought a Pocket Cinema Camera battery to enhance the staying power of the camera in the field. Like most documentarians, I'm constantly shooting on location so it behooves me to ensure I have an adequate power supply. The Pocket Cinema camera comes with an AC power cord, but it's nearly impossible to know if you'll be able to run off house power even in the most controlled environment.After testing the battery, I'm placing an order for two more. The best thing about the Pocket Cinema Camera batteries are the price point. At $[$] apiece, they are an excellent value. I would recommend purchasing at least 2 to 3 extra batteries, which equates to upwards of 2 1/2 hours of additional shooting time.My advice to filmmakers: Power down the camera between each take. This will go a long way toward saving battery juice. Most of the power is used for cooling the camera's internal components, but the video display also takes a good deal of energy to keep up and running. Blackmagic Design prides itself on making professional camera gear accessible to everyone. The inexpensive nature of its accessories, like camera batteries, helps ensure filmmakers can achieve their personal vision without spending a fortune.Like the Blackmagic cameras, the batteries are small and lightweight, and add relatively little additional weight to your camera bag. All in all, the Pocket Cinema Camera battery is an inexpensive insurance policy on all of your Blackmagic camera shoots.

      These batteries don't last very long. Thankfully they are cheap. I bought more after just using pocket camera a couple of times. You don't get even an hour out of one battery.

        I use this in my BMPCC. They are small like the camera which works well. They just don't provide enough power (in terms of life) to that semi-pro video camera. The batteries themselves are fine and work great it just isn't adequate for that camera.

              As soon as B&H received my request, they acted on it. They're extremely responsive and answer my questions carefully. Once I received the batteries, they were packaged with tremendous care. They're so small! It's no wonder people go through them so fast! Haven't got to use them yet, but I'm waiting on my BMPCC to arrive. It's been worth the wait!B&H care about their customers and will do whatever it takes to help!

              Fixed bmpcc battery issue

              By Shane G

              from Toronto. Canada

              Comments about Blackmagic Design Pocket Cinema Camera Battery:

              Because the bmpcc drains battery life so fast. Theese batteries go bad fairly quick. An issue that i had with my camera was it wasn't turning on. Sometimes after plugging in the charger it wouldn't charge.. And when it did it only charged to 92%. After reading some forums on the issue, I decided to order a new battery from b&h. Really quick and easy ordering. The battery got out to me in a couple days even when i used standard shipping. And it was all so easy i did it from the app on my android device.. Now the battery issue is solved and my bmpcc is back in business quickly and working the way it should.

              I was taking a trip to the Grand Canyon and wanted to shoot it with my Blackmagic Design Pocket Cinema Camera and I needed a couple extra batteries. I was shocked to see how cheap they were and I bought two.

              My only complaint is that a full charge doesn't get you THAT much shooting time. (less than an hour)
              Other than that, they do exactly what they're supposed to do. I have 3 batteries now and was able to rotate them out while at the Canyon - they provided enough shooting time for my excursion :)

                        I use this as a second battery for my BMPC. I charged them both for a full hour, however they read 100% charge after 40+ minutes. What surprised me is that they retain a 80% charge outside of the camera for about a week. They do drain in about 45 minutes during operation, which is to be expected with such a powerhouse camera. If possible purchase a battery docking station for your rig. 4 stars only because idk if brand name matters whatsoever.

                        Yeah it's cheap and charges quickly but it burns out too quickly, really unacceptable.

                          Comments about Blackmagic Design Pocket Cinema Camera Battery:

                          I recently purchased the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera (BMPCC) to shoot my MFA thesis film, and went ahead and bought a Pocket Cinema Camera battery to enhance the staying power of the camera in the field. Like most documentarians, I'm constantly shooting on location so it behooves me to ensure I have an adequate power supply. The Pocket Cinema camera comes with an AC power cord, but it's nearly impossible to know if you'll be able to run off house power even in the most controlled environment.After testing the battery, I'm placing an order for two more. The best thing about the Pocket Cinema Camera batteries are the price point. At $[$] apiece, they are an excellent value. I would recommend purchasing at least 2 to 3 extra batteries, which equates to upwards of 2 1/2 hours of additional shooting time.My advice to filmmakers: Power down the camera between each take. This will go a long way toward saving battery juice. Most of the power is used for cooling the camera's internal components, but the video display also takes a good deal of energy to keep up and running. Blackmagic Design prides itself on making professional camera gear accessible to everyone. The inexpensive nature of its accessories, like camera batteries, helps ensure filmmakers can achieve their personal vision without spending a fortune.Like the Blackmagic cameras, the batteries are small and lightweight, and add relatively little additional weight to your camera bag. All in all, the Pocket Cinema Camera battery is an inexpensive insurance policy on all of your Blackmagic camera shoots.
