Spare Battery for 1D X
« on: February 24, 2013, 06:15:11 PM »
The shop where I am getting the 1D X does not sell any spare batteries, and my Google skills seem to have deserted me over night. How much is a spare battery for the 1D X, and what model number are they please?

Thanks.
1D X + backup + different L lenses etc.

Thanks, sama. Checked online with the code and it seems the spare is around US$ 169. Cheers.

You can get a LP-E4 for $115 which works with the 1D X, or the LP-E4N which is $169 on a good day.  Of course, there are cheap Chinese batteries which might or might not melt down.

Totally. Nothing worse than being on a job and running out of power or memory.

Really! Surely Canon Image Square in Indiranagar, Bangalore would carry it. If not, they can get it for you. I am assuming you are still in Bangalore.

I have never been to Bangalore, you are mixing me up with someone else.

No problems. At least if I ever do go to Bangalore,  I now know where to go shopping for Canon stuff. Haven't been to India at all yet. ;-)
