    Leica BP-DC8 Reviews

    BP-DC8 Lithium-Ion Battery for Leica X1 Digital Camera is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 14.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from When Three's Not a Crowd Okay. It's a battery. There are other versions of this battery for less money available. But this a Leica battery that can be used in several different Leica cameras. Like some folk, I have a thing about using the battery made for its proper functioncheck the warranty for yourselfbut that's my own bias. Apart from that, this battery was purchased after discovering that having only one spare wasn't enough for a day's worth of shooting when I was traveling last fall. I missed quite a few photographs because the two batteries I had were spent, especially after shooting a little video of gypsy jazz musicians performing in a piazza in Rome. So now I think I shall have enough backup power for an upcoming trip into the Southwest. Thanks, B&H for your quick and fantastic service!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from If you have an X1 you MUST have this! The length of battery power in an X1 is only about 200-250 photos. It takes over 2 hours to charge this battery. If you're going to use an X1 while traveling or for a long period in the field, you've got to get an extra battery.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's a battery. To power a Leica X1. Battery life is pretty short.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Battery is also for the Leica X2 Despite the lack of mention in it's description, this battery is also for the Leica X2. Unlike 3rd party batteries, i've never had an official Leica battery swell up and jam in the camera, or fail in any way. They also seem to hold their charge very well for months on end. My only complaint is perhaps with the price, they are a fair bit more pricey than similar original batteries for other camera brands - but that's not unexpected, it is a Leica after all.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Original and No Compromises Even if the original battery costs twice the price of a replacement, you are in effect paying for the quality control that the OEM Battery undergoes that merits the placement of the Leica brand in the battery. In the D-Lux Leica and LX Panasonic equivalents, these batteries are interchangeable because of the identical models by these two prestigious manufacturers but with the Leica X range, it is best to get the Leica brand.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Glad to have it Bought as a spare for a Leica X Vario. It certainly comes in handy, even though I don't use an EVF (neither Leica's nor its Olympus counterpart), which apparently requires more power and reduces the specified 350 shots (by some 100, according to a number of reviewers). Still, it's good to have in those unforeseen instances when a deired photograph is missed because there's no power to deliver iteven my father's 1970s-era Nikon film camera requires a lithium battery, and it has failed on occasion.As this battery is the same as that of the Leica X1 and X2, one can only assume that its life between charges will be shorter because of the power to operate the X Vario, especially if the AF is on more often than not or the EVF is preferred. I highly recommend the purchase of a second battery for those just-in-case instances.Hats off to B&H for providing these at a fair price.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Original Leica X1 Battery I just bought this battery for my X1 as 2nd battery, and after days of deciding whether to buy the original or the third party which is 3 times cheaper. But at the end I just don't want to bother about risking by having battery that might having issue (or might not) while I am shooting on my trips. I have using it few times and so far the battery performance is great and I am satisfy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from a must have for X1 Leica X1's battery charge is enough only for about 100 pictures if you shoot in 100% Jpeg+Raw mode. Therefore having an additional battery at hand is crucial. I bought one together with my Leica X1 and this proved to be the right decision. NB: it takes about 2 hours to have it fully charged.
