Camera with the longest lasting battery 8+ hours continuous recording
Jul 1, 2014

I'm looking for any point and shoot camera (cheap or expensive) that has the longest

lasting battery that can allow me to record videos for 8, 10, or more hours STRAIGHT

without shutting down.

I've seen people try and make their own "external battery packs" with DSLRs, but I was wondering if any P&S camera out there has an accessory like some kind of giant ass

external battery pack that can be attached to the camera and power it for 10 hours straight.

Obviously, all the batteries that come with cameras are way too small and last only 1 to 2 hours max recording.  I know each model often has an "extended" version of their batteries on ebay but even those only last an extra 1 or so, so 2.5 to 3 hours is still not long enough.

I'm hoping there is a camera out there that has something like a 50,000 MAH rechargeable Li ON battery pack/bank that is the size of a deck of cards or a small paperback novel, and can be used to power the camera (not charge the battery in the camera, but actually RUN THE CAMERA as if it were using the battery pack/bank as it's main battery source).
