XA-20 Battery Runtime?

Ready to purchase an XA-20, and need to figure out how many extra batteries to buy. What kind of continuous runtimes have folks been getting?

TIA
Alan

I think I'm getting about 2-1/2 hours continuous, out of the BP828. The camera and batteries are too new to say for sure though.

Re: XA-20 Battery Runtime?

My readout says 238 minutes. For wedding work (don't know what you are shooting) you will need at least two large batteries, plus the stock battery.

I personally am going with two of them and then relying on other cameras. The batteries are expensive. $450 for three batteries is a chunk of money. I don't need the 20X zoom past the ceremony and first dance anyway.
