    Sony NP-FM500H reviews

    NP-FM500H InfoLithium Battery (7.2V, 1600mAh) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 296.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lets my camera work as it should! Sony cameras use proprietary batteries. While batteries from other manufacturers can be found for a lower price that might make things happen for a while, your camera must communicate with the battery for full functionality. The best bet is to use the battery that was made to get the job done. I haven't sold anything yet, even though I try. Mainly, I just walk around in the woods or the back yard and have fun with the camera. This battery last for as long as I need --generally less than an entire day of sporadic shooting. I carry a spare with me but rarely have to use it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from long lasting I bought this as a 2nd backup for camping vacations. I already own 2 others. This battery is great. I often leave my Sony alpha on for hours, so having extra batteries on hand lets me forget about having to turn off the camera to conserve. I check the percent of battery left at the start of the day, and do not even think further about it if there is 66% or more. If less, I put a second in my pocket in case I need it. I rotate the 3 batteries so they are all getting recharged regularly. Having 3 just means I do not have to recharge every day. I do birds, insects, and flowers, so the camera gets lots of use.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's all we got, but it'll do I use this battery on my Sony Alpha 700 DSLR and it does the job well. At this time, it's the only battery on the market that fits the camera since no third party has yet introduced one that works, so I have nothing to compare it with. The camera displays how much charge is left in the battery - a nice feature which lets you calculate how soon you'll need to prepare a backup at your current rate of use. The downside is you see how quickly the battery is being exhausted as you click away; I never get as many shots out of a full charge as the specs say I should. Once the dead battery icon appears on my LCD I can usually get a few more minutes of use but with spotty functionality.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's a winner I have read so many posts on multiple websites, indicating that the replacment battery that they bought 'thinking' they could save a bit of money, have run into problems; some of them severe enough that they had to send their cameras out for removal which was going to get expensive. I know I paid a bit more for this unit but I shopped with a reputable camera specialist and bought the OEM product. It fits perfectly and provides just what it should. Thank you B&H!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Expensive, but worth it I purchased this spare Sony battery for my A99 & battery grip. I had two batteries, and wanted a third for maximum battery life before going on a shoot on a boat without the ability to recharge. The two original Sony batteries still perform flawlessly at nearly three years old; the third performs perfectly, too. I considered cheaper aftermarket batteries but it is simply not worth the risk. Why try to save $15 and risk a battery issue that puts your shots, and/or the camera, at risk?

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would purchase this product again. Great product from SONY. Fits my A-65 and A-58 cameras.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Spare batteries are a must for the working photographer! Spare batteries are a must for the working photographer! If you've never experienced the frustration of running low on battery power when you're still energized and raring to go, you're lucky! Although I looked at the less expensive off-brand battery, it made more sense to purchase the Sony brand for the known quality and performance. With the incredible investment into quality camera gear, why take the risk with an off brand when it matters most?

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Always good to have a second battery If you have a vertical grip for your Sony Alpha camera, you really need a second battery. On the Alpha a700, the camera shows an individual readout for each battery showing the percentage of the charge remaining. The grip will use one battery completely before switching seamlessly to the second one. Two batteries together will provide enough charge for several days of normal shooting (around 1000-1200 frames in my experience)
