Use the F4 and F8’s advanced power switching feature to it’s full potential by automatically switching between Hirose and AA battery power without interupting your recording. The lightweight, plastic BCF-8 is a perfect, convenient backup power companion for your F4 or F8 recorder. Redundancy is always good...always.
