EOS camera battery compatibility

A typical EOS camera battery can be used in several Canon cameras. It’s essential to carry at least one spare battery for your digital camera. No battery means no photos. Fortunately Canon has a good record of using an EOS camera battery for several different models, ideal if you are upgrading from one camera to the next.

To find out which EOS camera battery is designed for your EOS camera please check the table below where the EOS camera batteries are listed, and then within each section you can find the cameras and accessories that also use the same battery.
