    Sony NP-FM500H reviews

    NP-FM500H InfoLithium Battery (7.2V, 1600mAh) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 291.
    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 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 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 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)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Power to spare 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!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from works as expected I bought two of these to have as spares. I currently have them installed in the vertical grip for my Sony a99. I purchased the sony branded batteries because I didn't want to chance a problem with an aftermarket compatible battery. I have used aftermarket compatible batteries in other equipment and have had only a rare instance where the battery didn't read properly, but when removed and re-installed it was fine. That being said, with the cost of the a99, (for personal hobby use it was a significant expense)I felt it not worth chancing an aftermarket battery either not performing properly or damaging my equipment. To date, the batteries have charged and lasted as expected. I have never had a problem with branded oem replacement items.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from No problems at all! OK lets be reasonable, there isn't a lot one can say about a battery. But with a good full charge this battery holds a charge well and it's feedback to the camera regarding its charged state seems reliable. I have it in my Sony Alpha-65 DLSR. Haven't had enough experience to evaluate the claim that it had no memory effect in regards to charging. I give 4 stars only because that last bit is still unknown.
