    Where was this battery a couple of years ago?

    This battery is simply amazing. How do they get so many mAh's into a package that is almost the same size as the FW50? My a6500 and RX10 Mark IV all use the FW50, but my a7R Mark III uses this battery and it has changed my work flow on set. I bought the a9 battery grip and run 2 of these batteries, I can almost go all day long now. THANK YOU Sony for listening to us on the battery problem. I would love to see a similar efficient technology to this FZ100 (size and weight to mAh ratio) in the NP-BX1 and the new J series battery for the RX0. Sony mirrorless is great, but a battery like this FZ100 makes the battery life at least comparable to DSLR equivalents. Though even those batteries aren't getting as good of a ratio on weight to mAh.

    Excellent Sony Spare Battery

    Sony's mirrorless cameras do use a lot of power, so if you're out taking pictures all day, a spare battery gives you peace of mind and extends your shooting before the next recharge. Just as good as the battery that came with the camera, and since its from Sony you know it is fully compatible. While certainly not cheap, its not worth risking your investment in your camera on an unknown generic replacement.

    I usually buy non branded batteries and for the most part, they work well. However, since after the newest firmware update, the generic batteries always causes the cameras to pop up a warning about non-official batteries. I figured, probably should just invest in at least an officail battery. Do not really need a lot of batteries anyway since these last a long time and a single battery is enough to last a day, at least for me.

    This is a great battery lasting nearly all day for my A7R3. I do have a second battery just in case I need it but so far as a hobbyist I have been just fine without the 2nd battery. This is a HUGE step up from the prior generation battery for my A7 that I needed to carry minimum 4 batteries. Now, with my new A7R3, battery is no longer a big concern. Again, I do have 2nd battery in case I happen to go really crazy on a photo shoot.

    Lasts longer than the previous 50 series battery. Battery lasts a long time anyway. This is what sony users were looking for and it's getting better. There aren't any 3rd party battery for these yet so users will have to get this one. Yes it's pricey but they are great batteries and being the named Sony brand is great and potentially good for resale. I use these batteries in my Sony A7 III and vertical grip.

    I have several Sony mirrorless cameras. They all used the same battery which is great. When I bought the newer a7III I found that it uses the NPFZ battery. While I don't like the charger ( Has a separate cord which is easy to misplace ) the battery life is much better. I do like it.

    Coming from the A6500 and the minuscule battery life of those cameras I definitely appreciate the greater capacity of these batteries and how they can allow you shoot without always needing to reach in your pocket for a replacement while not being terribly larger. A little pricey but you won't need a million.

    I have heard that some of the Sony batteries don’t last that long in certain cameras. I use this in my Sony A7iii and quite honestly it seems to be fine. I shot a short wedding and long evening reception on only one battery. I of course had several batteries to be safe but was pleased with the performance.

    One thing I've learned over the years is that you get what you pay for. I've rarely had issues when it came down to where the rubber meets the road. Photography is a passion and I used to use "other brands" to save money. Well... it's a 50/50 shot as to what the ultimate satisfaction will be. I love Sony batteries

    On the a7III I got through almost an entire wedding on one charge. Owning two batteries let's me film all day long. The cost of this battery though is expensive. It was worth it to me, but I wish it was 30 dollars cheaper. I won't be buying very many more. Fortunately though, it's good enough that I don't have to.

    I just got the a9 and was going to a photo shoot. was a little worried that I needed multiple batteries based on experience with a6500. 2 Batteries is almost more than enough so I was pleasantly surprised and glad I didnt have to spend a fortune more after paying for the a9

    Bought as a second battery for an A7III. I haven't had any battery issues but I wanted to avoid any problems. I take both batteries with me when I go out and have yet to actually need the second. Took 800 pictures recently at a tour of Utah stage and it barely used any charge/

    I was skeptical about these batteries bc I had heard so many stories about how bad the battery life was on the a7R ii. These newer batteries for the latest a7R iii model has pretty good life to it. I can shoot and still have enough power to last me for a few more hours.

    I wasn’t sure about getting another battery but I was told having an extra is worth having just to have a back up. If all else fails with the first battery, at least I’ll have another back up to continue with my shots.

    Although Sony 7 iii mirrorless camera is an incredible camera, it uses up battery life quite fast especially when taking videos on 4K. It is especially important to have a spare battery always with you.

    This is my 3rd battery just to have in my camera bag. There’s nothing worse than losing battery life while out shooting. This is a little pricier but I think worth putting in you A73, A9 or A7R3.

    This battery came with my new A7R3, I photographed a wedding and shot over 650 images and the battery still had power left for more, I am getting the grip and a second battery and the sky is the limit!

    Expensive OEM camera battery. I found other brand batteries work as well for savings up to 50%. It was tuff to find this battery at Best Buy. I checked several stores before I found one how stocks accessories. This should be in every store!

    Yes, these batteries last significantly longer than Sony's old batteries. However, the charger is expensive and as far as I'm aware, there is only a single official charger, so no equipment to charge more than one battery at a time.

    To be honest, 1 of this is enough for a day of casual shooting with the Sony A7iii camera. but 1 more is always a good idea. charges pretty fast and hold a charge very well as well.
