Summary: We are using this battery for filming some infomercials for our small business which sells products related to the construction industry. The long life on this battery is WONDERFUL for filming in "the field" all day, to capture a realistic scenario
Pros: Fast Recharge, Lightweight, Long Lasting, OEM
Summary: I use this for my new Sony HDR-FX7 & it doesn't make the camera that much heavier. I needed it for concert performances & weddings that I video, for my part-time business so it REALLY comes in handy. The only major draw-back, as I commented above, is the length of time it takes to charge. The smaller battery takes a long time, too, though.
