SWITRONIX RELEASES POWER SOLUTION FOR BLACK MAGIC CINEMA CAMERA
(WESTBURY, NY) – JULY 18, 2012 – Switronix is pleased to announce the PB70-BMCC, a versatile Powerbase solution for the innovative Black Magic Cinema Camera (BMCC). One of the unique aspects of the Powerbase-70 is the ability for the users to maintain this battery system independent of the camera they are shooting with. The newly released GP-DV-BMCC connector block now enables compatibility to the Black Magic Cinema Camera. In other words, current Powerbase-70 users do not need to purchase a new Powerbase battery pack to utilize this new connector block. All GP connector blocks are compatible with existing Powerbase models. Lastly, Switronix is releasing the GP-S-BMCC, a V-mount plate with double p-tap output and 12” connection for use with the BMCC.
The PB70-BMCC is furnished with two p-tap ports to power additional on-board devices. While an internal battery on the BMCC will only run for 90 minutes, the PB70-BMCC will nearly quadruple that runtime while allowing users to power multiple essential devices such as an on-camera light, monitor and other production accessories; a vital need for the contemporary videographer and photographer. A 4-LED power gauge allows users to easily monitor their charge with the tap of a button.
