    As far as battery testing, if you're willing to do a destructive test just opening it up and reading the specs off the battery...

    Per Energizer/Duracell, their alkaline batteries do the same thing (and at slightly warmer temperatures than a lithium ion). The main difference is we don't tend to use alkaline batteries in anything...

    I can't speak for Sony, but I know with Canon the quality is significantly better through Elgato than the webcam utility. Either one will put the built-in webcam to shame of course
