This unique product is the only power supply of its kind designed to meet the power requirements of high-end Sony F23 and F35 HD cameras.
“There are many things to consider when preparing for a production, and having a reliable power source for the video camera is right at the top of that list,” says Michael Accardi, president of Anton/Bauer. “Since the DT-500 provides rock solid outputs to run high-end cameras, such as the Sony F23 and F35, you won’t ever have to worry about your power source. We believe this supply will be embraced by all users of this equipment.”
The DT-500’s 14.4-volt output offers 300-watts of power with a 20 amp maximum via two 4-pin XLR or one 8-pin Lemo connector.

Through the 8-pin Lemo connector, the 28-volt supply offers 200-watts of power with a seven amp maximum. The physical build consists of a compact design with a diameter of 10.73 inches by 7.01 inches by 5.81 inches (27.3 cm x 17.9 cm x 14.8 cm), resulting in a total weight of a manageable 6.75 lbs (3.06 kg).
