Decent batteries, Good price. Hold a decent charge but will die out fast without notice as Battery indicator is not accurate.

  • Summary: OK batteries, Good price... Both batteries that came worked on my G7 and G6 M43 cameras. They seem to hold about 1h30 - 1h50min of continuous video recording in MF mode, which is a little less than OEM DMW-BLC12 Panasonic batteries. So they definitely are not 1600 mAh in terms of charge hold.

  • Excerpt: I recently purchased a new DMC-G5 from a private party. I did check actuation's prior to purchasing and it was indeed new. I opted for the G5 over the G6 because I have absolutely no need for wireless. Have you ever tried to send 100 pics to a laptop via wireless? It takes forever!.

Carry these batteries as back ups for picture taking trips.

  • Summary: Your camera will come with one battery. What do you do when it dies in the middle of taking pictures? What if you are on a vacation, away from home base, no way to recharge? Taking lots of flash pictures at night? Plan ahead and carry at least two extra batteries.

Inferior to OEM, dead in 7 months of light use, no web site for any support, stay away!

  • Summary: Don't waste your time or money on this item! Bought one back in June of this year and now some 7 or so months later, it will not hold a charge at all! It does feel lighter than the Panasonic OEM and while it worked initially, the charge was no where near as close to a used OEM one.

Well worth the money

  • Summary: I couldn't be happier. The images are clean and sharp when used with the Sigma 30mm. I intend to buy a good wide angle lens for the camera and use it mostly for travel as I have DSLR's for event and portrait photography.

  • Summary: They work great in my G5. Displays remaining battery life. I haven't given them a thorough run down yet, so I cant compare battery life to the stock ones.

  • Summary: Very nice camera. Took a while for me to learn all the feature. Lenses may cost as much as this camera which is the reason I am taking a star off. Pix quality is superb.

Fantastic camera, best micro 4/3s I've used

  • Summary: I've ended up buying this camera twice, that's how much I like this camera. I switched to an Olympus PL5, which seemed to have a quicker focus and better burst mode. But I hated the feel of the Olympus, it was terrible to hold.
