Orlando, Florida – Anton/Bauer recently introduced the new Gold Mount and ElipZ power solutions for the Canon EOS 5D Mark II and EOS 7D Digital SLR cameras at the Wedding & Event Video Expo (WEVA) 2010. Addressing the rising demands of cinematographers adopting Digital SLR camera movie making, Anton/Bauer is offering new power solutions for the EOS 7D and EOS 5D cameras. These new power solutions will run monitors, lights, transmitters and other accessories not possible with a standard OEM battery. Utilising the Logic Series batteries, the Gold Mount solution has the ability to mount to most third party support rigs, such as Red- Rock Micro, Zacuto and Cinevate, and offers a much needed counter balance to the rig. It can be configured in a pouch pack which is worn on a belt when handheld production is necessary. The ElipZ solution is based on 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, according to Anton/Bauer. The company also highlighted its DIONIC HCX, which has a 120 watthour capacity, a built-in motion detection sensor and a “deep sleep” capability which increases battery life by mitigating lithium-ion battery self-discharge when the battery is not in use. Lightweight and powerful, the DIONIC HCX can withstand high instantaneous current draws and weighs just 2.4 pounds (1.09 kg). In addition, the DIONIC HCX offers an enhanced LCD RealTime fuel gauge showing up to nine hours of run-time when used under low-power load conditions.
