Sony is again the company to look for with great products. I have experience with the Sony DSLR camers and the previous battery, (FM55), which was a great battery to use. I was loving the length of time I got from the battery but this one goes even stronger. This newer battery blows the lid off the amount of pictures. Once I could get around 900 shots now I can get about 1500 shots depending on flash usage and setup. If you need a battery with the stamina to keep pace with your picture taking this is it. It's even backwards compatible with the older Alpha 100 but the 100 battery will not work in the Alpha 700.

Very good battery life. I was able to photograph an entire 6 to 7 hour Wedding without changing the battery once. I bought two of these batteries, but probably only needed to buy one because the life is better than I thought. Oh well, it's better to have too many batteries than too little...Also, this battery definitely lasts longer than the original battery that came with my Sony A-100.

I use mine on the Sony slt-a57, and am very happy with it's performance. As I own a number of cameras, including a number of point and shoots, I have experience with both brand, OEM, and third-party batteries. My own experience has left me with the feeling that, for many point and shoot cameras, if a good quality third-party battery is available, they can be used as "backup" batteries, and that's exactly the approach I've ended up using: purchase two of the brand batteries, but then purchase also one or two of the third-party batteries to carry with me if I run out of power on the brand batteries during a long day of shooting. Since the third-party batteries can cost up to 80% off of the brand batteries, this is a pretty economical approach.

But for DSLR cameras, I've found that, for me, it is best to stick with the brand batteries, because they tend to be more reliable in operation, tend to have longer life cycles, have a dependable charge for maximum shooting on location, and tend to work properly with the camera's computer-based battery readouts (such as Sony's battery icon display, as well as the estimated amount of minutes display, both of which can have trouble with third-party batteries). They are indeed more expensive, but they can be relied upon to a greater extent.

Sony's NPFM500H battery here is a bit hefty compared to earlier variants, but it has an excellent charge capability. In fact, it seems so good that I doubt I'll purchase more than two extra copies, because it seems unlikely that I would go through three of them in a single day of shooting. Two might even be enough, but I like to have a backup of my backup!

These batteries will perform the same as the one that came with your camera. I've bought several of these and several third-party aftermarket offerings and learned some things the hard way.

I've found the performance of the third-party batteries to be spotty at best. First, you have to charge and discharge many of them several times before they will do anything consistently, and many include instructions to that effect in the fine print. I bought two from the same aftermarket source that behaved totally differently. One settled in and would charge up to around 90 percent, according to my Alpha 550. The other would never reach that level. In addition, the problem battery's characteristics completely confounded my AG-V0900 charger, causing it to generate false messages on the battery's condition and sometimes refuse to charge at all. I've concluded that the cheaper batteries are false economy, and I will stick with the Sony brand Infolithiums in the future. Be aware also that some third-party battery producers mark their batteries with the Infolithium name. Are they the OEM for Sony, or are they violating the trademark? I think they are just one more risky choice. Read the listings and ad copy carefully before you buy.

If you're taking your camera to a remote spot or going on vacation in a foreign country, my advice is to not take any chances. Does it make sense to risk shutting down hundreds or thousands of dollars worth of equipment to save $20 or so? Go with the real deal: pay your money and get the Sony brand. At the time of this review, Amazon's price was as good or better than any other source.

Good shooting,
Tim

Used on an a77 with grip and Sony 70-200 2.8 on continuous autofocus, camera set at 6.1mp on standard quality at roughly 600 shots an hour. Batteries were rated about about 500 shots. To meet the 5000 shot minimum I purchased additional batteries. I walked in with a total of 10 batteries, but only used up two and maybe 30% of the third. Not sure why but at the lowest possible settings this particular battery lasts forever. Besides the price, it would be very hard to say anything negative about it. It works, and that's what matters.

Sony has really increased the battery life with the newer infolithium batteries they offer. I use them with my A700 and various lenses. I can usually get a good 4 hours of continuous shooting out of them. That's powering the camera, lense motors, auto focus...etc.
