    I have a Vixia HFR-42 Digital Video Camera and this Battery has Long Life to easily record for several hours. The battery's Charge Indicator works well whether using an Offline Charger or the Camera for Charging and it Communicates well with the Camera and Offline Charger to indicate state of charge. Downside is the price is more than 4 times the equivalent generic battery. However, Canon sets the price, so Best Buy is at or below the Canon suggested retail pricing. I tried generic Kaepon batteries and they would not communicate. The Canon battery communicates well, even with the Kaepon Charger which for two batteries and the charger was less than the Canon Charger. I advise buying the Kaepon Charger and using only Canon batteries.

    Expensive but worth it

    Great battery, but is expensive. But, to film any length of time, you need a good battery and one that the camera will recognize. We tried to buy a generic battery to go with it, but the camera did not recognize it so it kept saying the battery was dead even though it wasn't. The camera instantly recognized this battery and it worked great with the camera.

    Battery was instock, and was mostly charged. Best Buy price matched. However, I think it's robbery for the price of a camera battery. This battery is so small (same size as a 9v), but cost $60-$100. But the camera was about 3 years old or so, and the original battery went out.

    The battery is made by Canon and sold for almost $100 for a 1 inch by 1 inch battery; it does have circuits in it to communicate with the video camera it's charge status; whereas the other batters that fit do not communicate with the camera on charge status.

    I needed a small second battery to help get me through a full day of recording court games. Fast charge and small size still provides enough charge to keep my camera rolling. I was able to purchase this with an online discount price, but batteries are still expensive.

    A trip for cheer competition at Disney definitely required a backup battery source for the new video camera. The sales person actually matched the vbest online price! Convenient since we didn't v have to wait for shipping and got the Best Price, too sweet!

    I have purchased two additional batteries for my cam recorder with the thought that it would require that many for a days of video recording events. That is over 3 hours, more than what I would ever need. The extra would be a back-up should a battery ever fail.

    The battery runs the camera for a good long while.

    I was very disappointed that the battery that came with the camera only lasted 30 minutes. This battery lasts 2 hours. I just got home from Hawaii and it did very well at keeping the camera running daily.
