Long lasting, well working, good value
on 13 September 2014
I recently took two of these on a 3 week trip of America, along with my regular Canon battery for my EOS 100d (Digital Rebel t1) DSLR.
After the first 3 days of shooting the Canon battery was starting to lag a little and was losing its charge (this battery is only 3 months old). The next day I geared up with this Opteka battery instead and off I went.
It wasn't until 5 days later I realised that I still hadn't changed the battery, and in that time i'd been through 2 x 16gb memory cards in the camera! (Got excited at Pearl Harbour).
I like to buy authentic parts whenever possible but the Canon genuine spares are very pricey. This battery was absolutely fantastic for the money and i'd definitely use Opteka products again. I can't say for sure if its better than the Canon battery, but its at least as good as and for this price I don't know why you wouldn't give it a go.
