DSM Product Update - DIGITAL POWER

Power for Sony V1000 V9000 and DSR200 Professional and Prosumer Digital cameras

The Lithium ion battery, supplied as standard with these models is quoted as being 4050mAh, yet they can only power the camera for between 50 and 60 minutes of continuous recording time. Add to this standby time between shots and the average on-tape recording achieved from a fully charged battery is only around 30 minutes. An optional 3 battery holder is available including 2 extra batteries for a cost of approximately £500 and as the camera is only supplied with a single battery charger that takes around 2 1/2 hours to charge a battery a further twin battery charger is a must.
