Sony NP-FW50 Reviews
Its ok, but loses power VERY quickly.
Its ok, but loses power very quickly. The rating indicates that the battery should be able to do about 380 shots. I have been getting maybe 80. Yes, there is a time issue here. I don't use the camera often. I have read that the battery drains quickly as a causal result. Compared to my Nikon batteries, the Sony ones are not as durable or long lasting. Better than the third party versions I would imagine.
Battery died after one use
My original battery died after about 4yrs of use. I ordered this battery and charged it fully. Once I used it up and went to recharge it for the first time, it wouldn't charge at all. Seems like a bad battery.
This is an OGM
This is an original Sony battery. It is more expensive and for me, original is worth the extra cost because I believe that the battery is better made, more durable and lasts longer between charges. For some, buying a third party battery is not an issue. It is certainly cheaper. But, what do you gain (or lose) beyond the financial savings?. The rest is up to you.
Lasts and lasts
I have a disability that makes it difficult to manually zoom my Sony RX10M4. As a result I carry several batteries. These batteries perform well under the stress I put on them.
Always need a better d battery
I purchased a packaged deal camera and this as second battery not realizing there was a second battery in the deal. I'm glad I did, the battery in the deal was a 3rd party battery that was subpar in comparison.
I've ordered products from here and I haven't had issues and always enjoyed them. This last time was the one time that I had a problem that wasn't necessarily B&H's fault and their customer service was great and they solved my issue within a couple of weeks. I will continue purchasing from them as needed and would recommend.
Good company . But, the battery might be an issue
So, the battery is ok.. But.. it doesn't hold the charge too long. The one I purchased from B+H went from 100% to 54 % very quickly ( ten shots) . I had it replaced and all is well. Just keep an eye on the amount left on the battery.
While this is an original SONY battery, it has its flaws!!
I was under the impression that this battery could do about 380 between recharging. Not so. I fully charged this battery to 100% but only took maybe ten shots. The battery strength dropped to 74%. In all fairness, the camera was not used for ten days previous to the above. But still, this is a SONY original battery. Also, the battery does not come with a battery cover. For the cost of the battery, I would expected that it would come with one. The box it came in was really large, and the battery cam with instructions. The battery itself was enveloped in plastic bag. Anyway, not impressed.
