    Agreed. My original Canon batteries for both C300 and 5Dmk3 have probably 60-80% of their original capacity by now. I dont think i have any random death batteries. I hope they don't introduce a...

    First of all, the C300III shoots 10-bit xfavc. The C200 has a sour reputation among some producers I know (even if it's just because they THINK it's a cheap camera). They hold the C300mk2 in higher...

    The LPE6 has been around since at least 2008 and the design has long since been reverse engineered. Canon may charge 10x the production costs. But the product is much simpler than an iPhone and thus...

    The P6K is a demanding camera and may require a higher operating voltage? Perhaps some cheap batteries fall down there. Plus if the camera is getting 40 min in a best case scenario you're in tough...
