Most people know that feeling of panic which sets in when you’re out and your cellphone battery is about to die: Well, that’s just about the same feeling photographers get when they only have a few shots left on a dying battery and there’s no power, charger or extra battery to save the day! To avoid that gut-wrenching feeling, make sure you have one or two spare batteries and a spare charger.
When going to a place like the Kruger National Park, where access to power points is limited, packing a few extra batteries is advisable. A friend of mine knows that feeling of regret all to well – on safari in Botswana, she realised that she only packed the one battery in her camera and that it wasn’t even fully charged! With no extra batteries or a charger, she missed out on some spectacular shooting opportunities.
This brings us to Hähnel that has grown from strength to strength over the past 50 years as one of the leading manufacturers of power products for camcorders and digital cameras. They offer a large variety of batteries and chargers for camera brands like Canon, Nikon, Fuji and Sony and today we zoom in a little closer on their range of batteries and chargers.
