This is perfect! It charges quickly and the charge lasts a very long time. I can turn my camera off and on, zoom in and out, take lots and lots of pictures, and upload pics to my computer without having to worry about the battery dying! I take a lot of pictures and I can use it about 3 days w/o charging and that includes a day at the zoo taking a couple pics of every animal! I would definitely recommend this battery and charger! Definitely worth the money!
