Battery Suggestions?
on Mar 12, 2010 at 10:32:51 pm

I am shooting with a JVC-GY-HD100U
I have tried several different brands of batteries but they all don't seem to last very long. My longest lasting battery is a Rayovac RAYM428 7.2V 3600MAH LI-ION. I bought this brand-new but it barely lasts me an hour. I usually shoot with audio input mic+48V which I know will affect the life but I have seen batteries on other cameras last over 3 hours...Is this the camera or the type of battery...

The JVC cams are power hogs. I have a HD110 and use the "Swit" dual battery adapter. It allows you to use 2 batteries at once. This is an alternative to the very expensive other adapters like IDX. I have been using cheapo batteries with the setup. The company that sells the adapters is in New Zealand and they are good to deal with.

I graduated from "Hardnock University".

I got some of these. You don't need an adaptor and they will give you 2-3 hours each. Cheapest solution unless you want to get an adaptor, then a couple of gold mont or V-lock mount batteries and also a charger.
