Sony NP-FW50 Review
Sony has been a leading brand in cameras especially the DSLRs as well as compact cameras. Now for professional photographers as well as photography enthusiasts, having their hands on extra pair of batteries for their equipment is a necessary precaution. The checklist of every photographer indisputably includes extra batteries along with extra memory cards and tripods. The Sony NP-FW50 is the authentic rechargeable batteries by the brand for its various compact camera models. It is a wise and safe choice for every camera owner.
The Sony NP-FW50 is a compact lithium-ion battery with 1080 mAh capacity. It is rechargeable and can be easily recharged by attaching it to a standard AC/DC charger available for NP-FW50 batteries. The battery provides an output voltage of 7.7 volts. It is compatible with a variety of Sony’s compact digital cameras as well as few DSLR models. The specific Sony’s camera models with which this battery is completely compatible are: E-mount camera ILCE-3000, E-mount camera NEX-3N, E-mount camera NEX-5R, E-mount camera NEX-5T, E-mount camera NEX-6, NEX-7 as well as DSLR SLT A33 and DSLR SLT A55 also. Also, while buying this compact rechargeable battery for Sony models, the compatibility mentioned on offering list is essential to check. This is mainly because there could be some compatibility issues in the newer and older versions of the batteries with respect to the camera models due to a special chip attached by the manufacturer in each battery.
The battery, once fully charged, is capable of powering up to 330 photo shots and up to 100 minutes of video recording – making it a very handy back up for usage during longer periods between charges. It is highly portable, since it weighs only 3.4 ounces and hence could be slid pretty much anywhere in a conventional backpack. The fully charged NP-FW50 battery comes in very handy in situations like birthday parties, wildlife photography, street photography and recording a conference, and other such events when uninterrupted shooting is essential. This battery is most compatible with Sony’s BC-VW1 and BC-VM10 battery chargers which are frequently bought with this product. Certain Sony NEX models tend to drain the batteries quickly. In such cases, original Sony NP-FW50 batteries become even more useful. Furthermore, counterfeit or cheap batteries tend to damage the equipment and also perform very poor. A legitimate Sony battery gives guarantee of compatibility as well as is long lasting and also does not damage the expensive cameras for which they are bought. The Sony NP-FW50 has a sturdy built and is also very easy to install and charge.
The long lived battery charge helps particularly the travelers, digital photographers, those who do portrait photography etc. This device makes a very good back-up for those using heavy-duty Sony e-mount and DSLR cameras. This is mainly due to the fact that these alpha cameras tend to drain batteries fairly quickly hence essentially require extra back-up if the user does not want to miss any shots. Ultimately this compact, highly portable and rechargeable battery by Sony is a very useful asset for every individual who owns a Sony NEX series cameras or SLRs.
