- Works well, pretty lightweight- July 15, 2017
I bought the original Sony battery because of the feature that it shows the actual power level in percentage in the camera display (I am not sure if all Sony models support that, but mine does.). Another reason for the Sony brand original battery was that I have pretty mixed experiences with other brand replacement batteries, and often their life expectancy wasn't convincing. But that might be a personal, subjective experience. So far, my Sony FW50 batteries are consistent in load capacity and work well. I can't make any statements about the battery's life expectancy because I have it for only 2 months so far. It's weight is 42 grams (ca. 1.5 ounces).Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
- Battery Life NEX cameras- September 19, 2012
I have a NEX 5K for a year now. Purchased an extra battery soon after getting the camera. Just returned from 3 week in Africa and prior to leaving purchased another battery. This gave me 2 while on game drives and one back in camp charging. Most of the time, the battery lasted for 8 hours of of the 2 game drives. Only twice did I have to swap batteries during a game drive. No power at night to charge the batteries. Most of my photography is stills not movies. No matter what camera you own, digital photography uses battery power. One should have no less than 2 batteries to insure you have power during your days picture taking.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
- Nice if price matched- November 25, 2012
The newer Sony cameras go through battery charges pretty quickly so having a second (or third) battery pack is almost a necessity. I have done over the rated 500 shots per charge but that was without using the flash and LCD screen very much. If you're smart about using your camera you can keep battery drain to a minimum and make the charge last quite a while. If you shoot video, the battery does get hot but cools quickly per Sony's support/manual/online service. Don't buy the aftermarket batteries. they may be cheaper but they don't last as long and have a tendency to give out or die much quicker. The Sony battery has lasted over 2 years with no degradation.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
