I'm a heavy amature shooter and typically will shoot several hundered or even a couple thousand frames on the days I shoot... depending on the subject, still life or live performances be it live bands or the ballet. These batteries have the backbone to keep shooting without have to change excessively. They last way longer than my Nikon batteries for my D200. I bought a spare "just in case" and haven't needed it yet. I usually can get through the shoot on one battery and still have some left over. The only issue I may have is that they take several hours to charge... more, it seems, than it took for the Nikon EN-EL3. So, make sure you put them on the charger before you go to bed or you may not make that early morning pre-sunrise glow!

New primary battery, exactly as expected

New primary battery - puts the standard battery in the back-up slot. It's all good, nothing stellar. I recommend it.

Comments about Sony NP-FM500H InfoLithium Battery (7.2V, 1650mAh):

I can use this battery for a lot of hours and it hold the charge even when Sony SLT's take a lot of battery because of their EVF but you can't go wrong with this original and official battery pack. Please don't buy generic batteries, they won't be as good as this one. Also they hold the battery even when not used in a lot of time.

                                  It's always good to have a spare battery. This does the trick. You can barely go wrong buying the OEM product. No complaints whatsoever.

                                        Fits my Sony SLR. I have tried knock off batteries and they only last one third as long. Original equipment is the only way to go. Quality is remembered long after price is forgotten.

                                              I bought this battery because I always want a fully-chanrged backup for any photo outing. This one goes along with the original battery that came with my Sony SLT-A65. It's also convenient that I can use the same batteries in my older A-200.

                                              I prefer to use genuine Sony batteries, although I have had good service from Ray-O-Vac branded equivalents from Batteries Plus; however, B&H's price on the Sony NP-FM500H is actually less than what I paid for the CAM10204 from Batteries Plus.

                                                This is a back up battery. When I hike in the woods I take a lot of pic's - it's better to have to many than not enough. Would DEFINATELY buy another one !

J'ai acheté ce deuxième batterie pour remplacer les copies à un prix exceptionnel! N'hésitez pasI have already bought copies, but my original battery still charges to 100% and still lose power slowly. I purchased this second battery for replace the copies at a great price! Do not hesitate

                                                        It's a battery. Charge it up and start clicking. B&H has been my go to vendor for 10+ years.

                                                        When it comes to batteries, I buy only OEM. The knockoffs are a gamble.
