I purchased the above long life battery. I was able to count on it's nearly four hours of dependable power to shoot a wedding . . .plus an entire party following the wedding. No worries whatsoever about this battery quitting on me! I also purchased a SONY 810 CAMCORDER . .for the uses I have it cannot be beat. Having a couple of these strong batteries for back-ups I never have to worry about power; it is so nice not to depend on house power.[...]

I didn't go large enough. This battery is a good backup to the 100 class battery. I would suggest going as large as possible. These batteries don't last as long as the previous Sony batteries did.As the saying goes...go big or go home.

      This battery is crucial for filming longer sporting events. Enough power to film an entire soccer game without worrying about having to change the battery during the game.

            I am using this battery with the Sony FDR-AX100
            4K camcorder and it works great with over two hours record time at 4K 30fps. Fast recharge time.

            Tried 'bargain' knock-offs in the past with poor results. Genuine batteries work and last the best.

                This battery lasts 6.5 hours on my camcorder. A little heavy but that's to be expected.

                This battery provides the right amount of extra recording time without sticking out from the camera so far that it gets in the way. Recommended for anyone that will record more than a few times per year.

                                  I like these model better than the bigger one. It's charge last a long time with Sony's Next FS 700 and it has a longer charging life than the bigger model and recharge

                                          Perfect fit for my camera Sony, add great additional time of recording and is neither too big nor too heavy.

                                              It allows me to run the video camera for almost 4 hours (not that I have ever done that yet), but it makes it much easier for long trips and less battery charging

                                              I had a few different after market brand for this type but they will not last the charge or last the time it shown on your camera. I'm a wedding guy and can't let that happen. It's a bit expensive but you will not regret. It last 4 hrs with my small camera.

                                                The battery that came with the camcorder is now a spare battery. Plenty of recording time without worries.
