BP-827 battery is the best among the BP series of batteries for Canon video camera.
RB in Charlotte
It's larger than the stock battery which lasted around an hour, and sticks out on the back of my HFS200, but still fits into my bag on the camera with little problem.
Always Question
The stock battery that comes with the camera is good for about an hour of recording time.

I've gotten screwed by generic batteries before. I had to throw one in the trash about a year ago because it just crapped out on me. Now, I try to buy the official battery.

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.

In general, you can purchase non-OEM batteries at much lower prices. They are for the most part, reliable, a fraction of the cost, and will last a good deal of time. The downside, their charges won't be as strong as an original same-capacity battery, their recycle/recharge rate will be less, and they will die out on you sooner, but then again at the price you pay buying another one will still be cheaper. If price is not an issue, this battery is excellent. Best part, I received this battery free as an Amazon promotion for my Canon HG20 which is a must, since the HD Camcorder uses the main screen instead of a viewfinder, battery consumption and use of the hard drive drains power quickly. The batteries that come with camcorders standard are always a joke and should be used as backups only. Thank you and enjoy a great product. BBC

Amazon shipped a generic replacement, labeled "Power2000", "ACD-763", "for Canon BP-827", with the address of a no-name company in New York. There is no official Canon logo anywhere! Instead it says "Manufacturers [sic] names are trademarks of their respective companies ... for reference purposes only ... do not constitute any form of endorsement ..."!! The barcode on the back is taped over with an external sticker that carries a different UPC code and says "Canon BP-827". It's obviously a fake. Very, very shady indeed. If I wanted a generic, I'd know where to buy it. Here, I wanted brand, and I got a knockoff represented as brand (it says "by Canon", and there is a picture with a Canon logo on the battery in the item description!), at more or less brand price. (The knockoffs are ~$50, not ~$120.) Take your pick what to think. I thought those fly-by-night outfits out of Brooklyn operated like this. Needless to say, it's going back. Simply unbelievable! Grrrr.

This Battery give me around 300 minutes of recording time or about 350 minutes of playback time on my HF10.

It does make the camcorder slightly bulky. This battery is a must when you are shooting outdoors.

I bought this battery and was very happy with the 4-1/2+ hours of battery time on my camcorder. The battery is a bit bulkier then the one that comes with the HF-100 but that is to be expected since it has like 3+x the capacity. I have the 16MB storage cards and you can fill a little more than 2 of them on a full battery charge.

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 is expensive but well worth it. It gives me over 6 hours of video recording. I bought a different brand from ebay for much cheaper and it works, but you have to answer the camera prompt to use a non-canon battery every time the cam is turned on. This is a pain.

Purchased this product just about 1 year ago, along with my VIXIA HF 200. Charged it maybe at most 20-25 times.

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.
