Summary: Hey, it's a quality battery and does what it should. It lasts for over 3 hours and charges fairly fast. It is the "mid-size" offered. There is a larger one but it sticks out a bit too much from camcorder which might be a problem fitting it in a case - the reason I got this one (and a second as backup). Beware of substitutes - they are not always of the same quality and "InfoLithium" compatible with a Sony camcorder.
Summary: This is a nice additional battery to have with your Sony HD camera. Biggest strength of this is that even though it last 50% more than the standard battery provided by Sony with the Camera, it is almost of the same thickness so it does not protrude too much out of the camera and you can carry it in the smallest case easily.
Summary: This battery is the same physical size as the NP-FH60 that came with my HDR-SR11 camcorder. What’s nice about that is it doesn't get in the way if you try to use the viewfinder. Although it’s the same size, it extends the battery life from about 1.5 hrs to 2.5 hrs. I would avoid any generic batteries. Most of the generic's have a wire coming out of the battery and may be larger and heavier then this battery.
Summary: Not much to say about a battery, works as expected. Original NP-FH60 was spec'd at 7.2v, 7.2Wh, This one is spec'd at 6.8v and 12.2Wh. In HDR-SR11, a freshly fully charged the NP-FH60 says 95 minutes of runtime; a freshly fully charged NP-FH70 say 151 minutes of runtime. I've read these times are quite model dependent. Purchased from Amazon for $65, Best Buy price was $99.
Pros: Exactly the same size as the NP-FH60 that came with the HDR-SR11 so it doesn't stick out beyond the end of the camera.
Cons: None so far - only time will tell if it holds up.
Summary: This battery works great with my SONY HDR-HC7 camera. It has approximately 180 min when charged completely. It works much longer then original battery that came with my camera. Definitely a must have!
Summary: This is a great battery. Considerably larger than the stock battery sold with the camera but is pretty much unnoticeable when using the camera. @360 minutes on a full charge. A real benefit when on a day trip and frequent re-charging is not an option. This battery is a must have accessory.
Summary: Battery works great and it last a very long time. It also charges pretty quickly. It has worked great on vacations and not having to worry about the camcorder battery running out is definitely worth the price of this battery. This battery can be purchased for about $60 from Amazon which is a great deal and much cheaper than local retail stores.
Pros: This battery works great for more than 3 hours of use. I use it for my Sony MiniDV. This last so much longer than the battery that comes with the camcorder.
Cons: The size of the battery is the only weakness I can see.
Summary: This is a must have add-on to the Sony Camcorder. It provides extra battery life to the camcorder and it recharges very easily. I could get upto about 200 mins of extra charge time with High Definition recording. The battery recharges really quick and an external quick recharger can be considered as an extra add-on. A bit extra space requirement for the battery but not noticable when attached to camcorder.
Pros: Extra Battery life, quick and fast recharge
Cons: Size but not noticable when attached to camcorder.
