Battery Performance

Our general method for battery testing is to reset the camera to its default settings and change the recording mode to the highest quality option. Then, we take 5 pictures without the flash and 2 pictures with the flash until the battery is dead. For more information on our battery test, please refer to our Testing Procedures page. The NP-FR1 (supplied with the camera) was fully drained before charging for the test.

 Number of shots taken in one battery charge
1,480

The DSC-F88 showed very impressive battery life in our test. At 1,480 shots on one charge, you should be able to shoot for a long time before recharging. As with all cameras, the actual number of shots per battery cycle will vary depending on several factors such as shooting frequency, flash usage, AF-assist use, etc.
