When I fully charge this big thing up, my HF100 reads 268 minutes (4 hours and 28 minutes) of battery time remaining as soon as I power it up. I'd take that number with a grain of salt... think: a minimum of 3 hours for sure and you'll probably be fine. I always assume about 2/3rd's of what the manufacturer claims the battery life to be, because the manufacturer always does their battery tests in the ideal conditions of the lab instead of real world conditions.
And yes, it does stick out pretty far... but hasn't been a real problem for me. You may want to consider getting two 819's instead however. They will last you about 2 hours (real world time). The original battery that comes with the camera lasts for about 1 hour real world time.
This thing is really expensive. You know that 75% of it or more is pure profit. But, if you want the official name brand with a warranty, I guess you pay a premium.
Side note: I also bought a generic 2 hour battery and charger for my HF100. Just know that I CAN NOT charge my official Canon batteries (including this big boy one) on that third party charger. I need to still charge my Canon batteries while they are in the camera. I'm still trying not to spend so much money on that really expensive official Canon battery charger. That thing should be half the price that it is! Just thought I might warn people who thought they could get a off-brand charger to charge up their Canon batteries. They must have some kind of lock-out chip that prevents them from being charged in a non-official charger. Boo Canon.
It does make the camcorder slightly bulky. This battery is a must when you are shooting outdoors.
The camcorder still fit in my case with the battery on, so no big deal.
If you are going to be shooting for a good length of time or you just hate recharging your battery after every 60-90 min session then this is a good buy. I highly recommend it.
This battery never had any issues until it hit around the 1 year mark, then suddenly would not charge past 26 minutes. Next time I tried charging, it wouldn't even hold any charge at all, and cannot even turn on the camera.
I just got off the phone with Canon Technical Support, and said their warranty for accessories are only for 30 days, and they basically told me that I have an expensive paperweight, and that there is no way for them to service it or to assist in any way whatsoever.
I may have a lemon, but I don't see the reason why anyone should pay the extra premium for a name-brand product that only has a 30 day warranty, and has no serviceable options from Canon.

This is a very powerful battery that does the job. Great to have a backup as well to always ensure the ability to capture something at a moments notice.Published 3 months ago by Bobby
I prefer the Canon batteries to the aftermarket ones. This has proven to be solid and provides almost 300 minutes of use on a full charge.Published 13 months ago by Robert V. Sigillito
