EOS R5 Back In-Stock at B&H (Save Sales Tax with PayBoo Card)

Camnostic: LP-E6NH in EOS R5, Do 3rd Party Batteries Work As Well?

Camnostic just published another great in-depth study — this one looks at the LP-E6NH‘s performance in the EOS R5.

When Canon introduced the EOS R5 (street price: $3849) they paired it with a new LP-E6NH, to support the camera’s power-hungry 12 FPS and 8K video modes. Camnostic puts these new batteries through an extended test.

If you’re looking for top EOS R5 performance, the Canon LP-E6NH appears to be worth the premium over third-party brands. Camnostic pits the LP-E6NH against popular third-party batteries (Neewer, Watson, and Powerextra, to name a few). All claim to be “LP-E6NH”, but the gap is surprisingly large: the Canon batteries hold about 10-15% more charge, and can last on average twice as long in the power-hungry 12 FPS mode (60% of their charge vs. 25%-35% for the third party batteries).

They also follow-up with a review of other options for powering the R5, such as grips, power adapters, USB batteries, and “dummy” batteries. A highly recommended read for EOS R5 owners.

The Canon LP-E6NH is $79.99, but supply still seems rather limited at this time — it’s in-stock at the Canon Direct Store, and “coming soon” at B&H and Adorama.
