    I'm about to get a Sony DCR-HC42E camcorder from Ebuyer and have been looking for a longer charge battery for it.
    I can't find a reference code for the battery on the Sony site but found some info on Amazon that said the Sony NP-FP71 (NPFP71) battery was suitable for the camera.
    Can anyone confirm this is the right battery? Amazon sell it for £49.99 and free delivery. Good price? Ebuyer don't seem to sell them.
    Thanks
    Mike

    Thanks laser.

    Is there a difference between a NP-FP70 and a NP-FP71? Same for the FP90/91?

    Also, where they list the battery as 'compatible with', they list one of the compatible cameras as a DCR-HC40. Is that a specific model, or is that a generic term any HC4X camcorder, including the HC42E?

    Just want to be sure I get the right thing :)

    I have no idea. I've checked on the Internet and can't find what the difference between the batteries.
