Need a battery compartment for an R8 - where to find?

Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

Hi,

 

The R8 I purchased on eBay came with the motor and that's great. I would, however, like to get the standard battery compartment for the R8 for times when I don't want the extra weight.

 

Can anyone recommend a source for this part? I have been in touch with Dave Elwell of Leica Camera in NJ and he says there are no such parts in stock in the US or Germany.

 

Thanks in advance,

 

Danny

Yup, I checked their web site and they don't appear to have any in stock at the moment. Perhaps I'll send them an email to ask to be notified in case they do get any in stock. Thank you!

There is a current eBay listing for a used R8 battery hand grip.  The seller is Team-Foto.   Price seems reasonable.

Thanks! That item didn't come in in my English search on eBay so thank you very much for checking on the German listings.

I just bought it.

Glad it was available and you got it.  

 

Its hard to find some of these pieces apart from the camera.  I was looking for an R8 motor winder alone and made a deal with an eBay seller who listed one together with an R8 camera.  He was willing to sell me the winder without the camera at a reasonable price.  After the sale, he re-listed his camera minus the winder.
