I know this has been discussed in the past, but can anyone help out on a query I have regarding my FX1 and an F970 battery. It cuts out on the camera when it reports to still have 2 hours 15 minutes power left. I put it on my Sony video light and it runs both bulbs at full power for about a minute then cuts out (fully drained). When I put it on to charge, the charge indicator states (battery life 2 hours 15 minutes) but it wont power up anything. It charges to 8 hours 58 minuted (full charge). I have completely drained it and recharged 4 or 5 times, as suggested on the earlier thread, but still have the problem. My F960 battery does not present any such problem. Any ideas chaps?

You may get this problem with non-Sony type batteries. I have one which will only give about 10 Mins. play then cuts off. If you are in the market for non-Sony type then try Hawkwoods, very good deal.

Now with a PC Specialist Quad Core i7-3770, 16GB RAM, 180GB SSD, GeForce GTX560 Ti Graphics Card, Blu-Ray & DVD R/W Burners and can't wait to set it up. Now up and running.  What a difference in Blu-Ray footage.
