Best Battery for the HMC40

Dan the Director, Adorama
16 July 2012
  • Excerpt: I recently bought a Panasonic HMC40 camcorder from Adorama, and the battery included with it (the VBG260) packed a very mall punch. On a full charge, it would get about three hours of battery life, and that's without changing brightness on the screen or turning on any of the extra features such as the Record Lamp or the Wind Cut microphone feature.<br /><br />I knew that I needed a better battery, and the VBG6 was the only choice. Yes, it is quite expensive.
  • Pros: Fast Recharge, Lightweight, Long Lasting

Best Battery for the Panasonic HMC40

Dan the Director, Adorama
2 July 2012
  • Excerpt: This is a terrific battery!<br /><br />I recently purchased my first professional video camcorder from Adorama, the Panasonic HMC40. The battery that comes with it is a terrific battery, and I get 3 solid hours of use from it, but it is quite small. When you put it in the battery slot on the camera, it looks a little silly because of all the extra space for this larger battery, the VGB6.
  • Pros: Great Fit, Lightweight, Long Lasting
  • Cons: Expensive

Great battery!

CJolly, Adorama

  • Excerpt: Great battery for the HMC150. Unlike some of the 3rd party batteries, the Panasonic batteries will show the battery life remaining on the LCD screen. It's accurate, and recalculates charge when you open or close the LCD screen or start recording (it actually calculates the usage CONSTANTLY). The discharge is much more linear than 3rd party batteries as well.<br /><br />Don't waste time and money on the other batteries..
  • Pros: Long Lasting
  • Cons: Slow Recharge

Wow, what a battery

Adorama
26 January 2010
  • Excerpt: I use it with the HMC40. The only moving parts are the internal optics. On a Full charge, it powers the Panasonic HMC40 For about 7: 50+hrs with the LCD Screen on. and about 5-10 percent more just using the smaller viewfinder. I use the rode video mic the has its own battery that is doens't use the camera's power. I imagine that buying the XLR and adapter and mic to go with would reduce the time some but the rode videomic is something to consider in the mean time.
  • Pros: Long life

  • Pros: About 5 hours of use, Light Weight
  • Cons: Takes a while to charge, XLR mics drain batt quick
