Anton/Bauer Now Shipping New Power Solutions for Digital SLR Cameras

Anton/Bauer, a brand of The Vitec Group, is now shipping the QR-DSLR and DSLR-ADP-ELPZ power solutions for the Canon EOS 5D Mark II, EOS 7D and EOS 60D Digital SLR cameras.

Addressing the rising demands of cinematographers adopting Digital SLR camera movie making, these new power solutions run monitors, lights, transmitters and other accessories not possible with a standard OEM battery.

Utilizing the Logic Series batteries, the QR-DSLR has the ability to mount to most third party support rigs, such as Red-Rock Micro, Zacuto and Cinevate, and offers a necessary counter balance to the rig. It can also be configured in a pouch pack, which is worn on a belt when handheld production is necessary. The DSLR-ADP-ELPZ is based around the ElipZ battery system and provides the user the ability to power the camera and ElightZ or EledZ, an appealing option among the event photographer crowd. This can also be adapted to both a shoulder mount or pouch pack configuration.

Anton/Bauer at and Pro One World 2010 Open House
At Band Pro One World 2010 Open House, Anton/Bauer will showcase its DIONIC HCX 120 watt-hour capacity battery, CINE VCLX Batteries, SO-SF35 and SO-14/28R Snap-On Belts.

With a 120 watt-hour battery capacity and a brand new motion detection sensor that protects against capacity loss, the DIONIC HCX is the company’s latest addition to its DIONIC series high-current battery line. The DIONIC HCX features a unique, built-in motion detection sensor. After a two-day period without a load, the DIONIC HCX automatically goes into “deep sleep,” significantly reducing self-discharge and allowing extended storage with nearly zero capacity loss. To “awaken” the battery for normal use, customers need only move the battery, thus activating the motion detection feature and as a result, “wake up” the battery. This new motion detection feature significantly increases the overall life of the battery by mitigating lithium-ion battery self-discharge when the battery is not in use.

Ideal for remote locations, the CINE VCLX batteries are powerful enough to run an ARRI Alexa for over 4 hours. The safe and high-power draw performance of the Nickel Metal Hydride cell technology can also power microwaves, recorders, and lighting, including HMI’s and the Litepanels 1×1 LED panels. The CINE VCLX includes (2) 4-pin XLR for 14.4V and (1) 3-pin XLR for 28V, and provides dual simultaneous outputs (20 amps at 14.4V; 12 amps at 28V).

Snap-On Belts are an ideal solution for utilizing current battery inventory and replacing old NiCad belts with any Logic Series batteries. They can also be used with any two Logic Series Batteries and offer limited hot swap capability for continuous power. The SO-14/28 for universal applications includes 4-pin XLR for 14.4v (fused at 10 amps) and 3-pin XLR for 28V (fused at 12 amps) and provides simultaneous 14.4V and 28V outputs. The SO-14/28 provides 28V output for all film cameras, digital cameras and 30V lighting, as well as 14.4V output for cameras, recorders, lighting and other field production gear. The SO-SF35, designed specifically for the Sony F23 and F35 cameras, offers dual simultaneous voltage outputs via 8-pin LEMO connector at 14.4V (11-17V range; 10 amp maximum) and 28V (12 amps maximum).
