Battery life- HPX170

Greetings.

Does anyone have or know where to point me to a chart of recording times for the stock 170 battery?

How has your battery life been with the 170 been.

About 3.5 hours.

Thanks Barry.

So that's 3.5 regardless of settings? It seems having an extra Panny bat pack would be more reasonable than an Anton Bauer brick, and lighter too.

Well, the more you use the power zoom, etc., the quicker you'll run the battery down. I've got four batteries, I rarely use more than two in any normal shoot day.

Same here. I normally carry 2 batteries (fully charged). Can last me the whole day. Much lighter than carrying one AB brick. I hardly zoom when I am filming.
