Canon EOS 5D Mark II & its battery LP-E6

Compared with its predecessor EOS 5D, the Canon EOS 5D Mark II has many new features. The new EOS 5D Mark II boasts a new 21MP CMOS sensor, an expanded ISO range of 50-25,600 and a wealth of improvements and new features including full 1080p HD movie recording, live view, 3.0" 920k dot LCD, DIGIC IV processor and sensor dust reduction.

With capacity up to 1800mAh, the new battery LP-E6 is much more powerful than the previous BP-511A. Even though the new EOS 5D Mark II is a substantially higher-resolution camera than the previous EOS 5D, and in spite of the added performance of its DIGIC 4 processor, the LP-E6 powers the camera for 850 shots at normal temperatures based on CIPA-compliant tests performed at Canon Inc.

Moreover the battery grip BG-E6 offers unlimited battery expansion and comfortable photographing.

Pentax Optio E65 battery D-Li85

One month ago some clients inquired a battery called D-Li85. It was turned out that this battery is for Pentax Optio E65 which was released in November 2008. Since this camera is mainly sold in Europe, many after-market battery manufacturers does not pay much attention to it.

The Pentax Optio E65 is a compact camera that comes with a massive 8 megapixels, a 3x zoom and a large 2.7-inch screen, where you can view your shots before and after taking them. A digital image stabiliser works with a sensitivity range of 1600 ISO to guarantee frame-worthy photos in even the most unfavourable lighting conditions, while a VGA (640x480) resolution video mode combines with face detection and smile recognition features, meaning you can easily frame a shot and make sure you subject is looking their best with their eyes open and a big smile on their face. Keep a record of your best moments without breaking the bank with the Pentax Optio E65. The Pentax Optio E65 is sold at £75 in Europe.

The Pentax Optio E65 uses a rechargeable li-ion battery rated at 680mAh. Since this camera is mostly sold in Europe, so the battery is only sold in European countries also at moment. The replacement battery produced by Sunpow is rated at 750mAh, much higher than original D-Li85 battery.
