Alpha 7 batteries

Hi I saw this video - https://youtu.be/4ezKmawMEUs
From your official YouTube page, in minute 2:40 he says that Sony mirror less cameras bring 2 batteries, so I want to know if that is true and if I buy my alpha 7 will bring 2 batteries?

Some do, and some don't.

 

The A7S, A7R II and A7S II come with two batteries, while the A7, A7R, A7 II and A9 only come with one.

Re: Alpha 7 batteries

The battery for the A7 series was originally developed for the original NEX APS-C mirrorless cameras. The 'Full Frame' A7 series cameras draw a lot more current, so that battery didn't last as long. To compensate for that (somewhat), Sony includes 2 batteries with the A7R II and A7S II.

 

The new A9 uses a new battery that is more than twice as powerful as the battery that the other E-Mount bodies use, and is even more powerful than the battery most A-Mount cameras use.
