Hello everyone. I own a A3000 I bought new around one year ago. I must say, I have been very satisfied with its battery life, which has been very solid... until now. My current problem is that the battery doesn't charge up if I don't continuously check whether the orange light is glowing; often times, such light turns off after a few minutes, or it starts flashing, and the battery stops charging. I just left the camera on for an all-nighter only to find it this morning at 39%. This never happened until now, and I never replaced the battery nor the cable. I checked the battery and it looks fine: no dirt or fingerprints (as I never remove it from the camera). It also doesn't seem like a temperature issue, as the camera is charging in my house, where there are 15 degrees, and away from the sun. The only thing I can think of, different from what I usually did upon charging the camera, is that it is plugged with my new 70-210mm lens on it. I can hardly think of a reason why this would influence the process, though. I'm quite distressed now, as I am leaving in two weeks for a trip in Africa, and if the battery abandons me there I might as well hang myself. Has anyone experienced the same issue? I read around the internet it is quite common, but no solution I found seems to work for me. Thank you sincerely, Ted
Apologies in advance for my newbie question. I want to purchase a spare battery for a Sony a6000. There seems to be a tremendous price range on Amazon. I've seen them as low as two for $26.99, and as high as $49 each. Is there a difference in the batteries? Are there any specs one should look for before purchasing? Thanks for your help with this.
