JVC GZ-HM550 Battery BN-VG114 First Review
April 26th, 2010 ; No Comments ; Edit
JVC BN-VG114The JVC GZ-HM550 includes a BN-VG114 battery that slides into a wide open slot for a back from the camcorder self. The open battery slot allows for the use of optional longer life GZ-HM550 battery, including the BN-VG121 which allows for a reported a couple of hours and 5 minutes of continuous recording time using the LCD, or 2 hours and forty minutes using only the EVF.
We tested the included BN-VG114 battery power for continuous recording in Manual mode to eliminate automatic adjustments that may affect battery life, the LCD screen set to on, and OIS set to off. The BNVG114 battery on our HM550 petered out after 76 minutes and 40 seconds (1 hour, 16 minutes, and 40 seconds). This recording time is just shy from the 1 hour and 20 minute recording time submitted to the owners' manual, and rates a chunk below average for consumer camcorders we've tested 12 months. As with any camcorder, definitely expect normal recording time for this battery in order to a good deal lower, making an allowance for your shooting style, stops and starts, and the number of manual adjustments you're making.
