Sony NP-F970 overview

  • 1Description

Small and lightweight, Sony's Lithium-ion batteries can be charged or discharged anytime without developing memory effect. This means they never lose their ability to hold a full charge. They also display remaining battery time on the LCD as well as in the viewfinder by continuously communicating with the camcorder. InfoLithium battery packs have a built-in micro processor that accurately calculates remaining battery life in minutes.

    Sony NP-F970 reviews

    NP-F970 L-series Info-Lithium Battery 2 Pack (7.2v, 6300mAh) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 48.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from MUST HAVE I use this product with the HVR-HD1000U Things that are good: When in use with the above listed sony camcorder, camera will run around 6 hours of continuous usage. I use it sporadically during weddings and on average record around 3 hours. This battery gets down to around 40% after a 10 hour shoot, with around 3 hours of raw footage. Works out great. Things that are bad: I have to use the camera to charge my batteries, bear this in mind when I say the following: the only bad thing about these batteries is that they take the better part of 8 hours to charge up. Given their discharge time is about the same, its a trade I can live with.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Long Lasting Performance I purchased two NP-F970 L batteries for a new camcorder. One NP-F970 battery lasts all day for my camera and I have an identical back-up for those really long remote shoots. I tend to keep my cameras longer than most and I'm a firm believer in purchasing enough OEM batteries from the get go to last the life of the camera. I have a disdain for nearly all aftermarket batteries that over-promise and under-deliver on performance and life span. You simply can't go wrong with SONY L-series batteries if you take proper care of them. Four of my L batteries were purchased in 2008 and 2010 and they're still going strong.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful Battery, worth every penny I use these batteries with the Atomos Shogun. They are heavy and durable but hold a ton of power. They do take some time to charge fully. I got them out of the box brand new and charged them to the max and it probably took 10-12 hrs. I don't know if they were completely depleted when I got them out of the box but I assume they were close to it. If not, it probably would take even more time. However, I am currently testing life span in standby mode and it has been 1h4 and 48 minutes and the battery looks to still have about 50% power left. So I would guess this battery will last for up to 3.5 hrs or more in standby and probably 2-2.5 hrs in full use with 4K and audio going. Either way they are much better than the batteries provided with the Shogun.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Batteries of this type I have been using original Sony NP-F970s for many years, and they are by far superior to any of the knock offs and other brands out there. They talk to the info-lithium chargers perfectly, and you can be confident that when they say they are charged, they are charged. They have very long run times and hold a full charge well even when they go unused for weeks at a time. Further, they seem to last forever. I have many that I have used for years (up to 5 years), and have never had a problem with one. Yes, they cost more, but are so worth it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Long-Term Purchase for Myself As of right now, I own just one Sony Camera (FS-700) and intend on acquiring another one or another Sony HD Camera in the next couple years. These batteries I had used before at my old job and worked great for years. They never began to have shorter battery lives. They keep my FS-700 powered for 4-5 hours. Have a couple almost guarantees you a full shoots worth of battery power if you somehow have no charger with you. Buying two for a slight discount overall is a great deal in my eyes and intend to buy more when I acquire my new camera,

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Batteries I am a freelance video producer and just got this battery kit for my HVR-V1U and they are great! I can shot all day and not worry about running out of battery. They are a little pricey but well worth it. Not having to worry about draining power before recharging is a big deal to me, and so well worth the money.
