Three NP-FM500H batteries (including one battery in the camera body, each sold separately) triple the battery performance compared to that of camera body alone. A battery with lower power in the grip is used first, and automatically switched over to the other when it runs out. The one in camera body is used at last to maximize shooting time. Remaining power of current battery conveniently indicated in percentages on the camera’s LCD monitor.
