Gold Mount Power Options Meet the Growing Demands of DSLR Cinematography
LAS VEGAS, APRIL 12, 2011 – Anton/Bauer®, a brand of The Vitec Group, and the world’s premier provider of batteries, chargers, lighting and other mobile power systems for the professional broadcast, video and film industries, will debut the QR-DSLR and DSLR-ADP-ELPZ power solutions for the Canon EOS 5D Mark II, EOS 7D and EOS 60D Digital SLR cameras at the 2011 NAB Show (Booth C7032).
Addressing the rising demands of broadcasters and filmmakers incorporating Digital SLR camera video capture into their productions, Anton/Bauer is offering new power solutions for the EOS 7D, EOS 5D Mark II and EOS 60D cameras.
The QR-DSLR and DSLR-ADP-ELPZ provide power solutions for the professional accessories that surround the camera and offer extended run-times, not possible with a standard OEM battery. They also simplify on-site battery management by eliminating the need for multiple smaller batteries from the manufacturer.
Utilizing the Logic Series® Batteries, the QR-DSLR provides 7.2v power to the camera via the Canon DR-E6 Coupler* and 14.4v power via the PowerTap for accessories such as the Ultralight2, on-board monitors and external hard drives. Offering excellent counter balance, the QR-DSLR can mount to most third-party support rigs, such as Red-Rock Genus, Micro, Zacuto, Cinevate and others. Providing stress-free power management, the Logic Series Battery’s RealTime LCD indicates remaining run-time for all items being powered.
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. Like the QR-DSLR, it can also attached to most third party support rigs. Both the QR-DSLR and DSLR-ADP-ELPZ can be worn as a pouch pack when handheld production is necessary.
“We are thrilled to present the QR-DSLR and DSLR-ADP-ELPZ power solutions to the 2011 NAB attendees,” says Shin Minowa, vice president of marketing and business development. “Broadcasters and filmmakers are relying increasingly upon their Canon Digital SLR cameras to capture HD content, and Anton/Bauer offers the best solutions to power their energy demanding gear.”
