Genuine Panasonic GH2 Battery £43.25 at Amazon

Not for everyone but if you're a Lumix GH2 owner this is a good deal - AFAIK the cheapest price for a genuine battery from a good retailer. There are any number of ebay knock-offs for much less,

I meant that the market place seller is slightly cheaper for the genuine battery. I've edited to make clearer.

As I say in the original post, non=panasonic batteries are indeed much cheaper - but I've not had such great experience with them.
They definitely don't last as long as aren't as predictable. They also say you're running a risk of damage to the camera - though I accept that risk is likely minimal.

The biggest difference is that with 3rd party battery you don't get a battery level reading - so it can switch off in the middle of a shot without warning. I shoot video and that's disastrous as you'll usually lose the last shot (and possibly corrupt the card).

If you're mainly stills then its less of an issue.

If you know of a cheap 3rd party battery that gives an accurate reading then do let me know.
3rd party batteries are a quarter of the price of this. I wouldn't call that slightly cheaper. The 7 day shop version is £5.99

I always buy 3 spare 3rd party batteries for my cameras and can never tell the difference between them and genuine. Unlike lenses for example their resale value is virtually nothing, so they're not a good investment.

Having in said that if you must by genuinue this is a good price.
