As the next generation of the popular F3 camera, the Sony PMW-F5 and Sony PMW-F55 offer the end user a 4K imager, enabling superior, super-sampled pictures with noticeably higher contrast, rich color reproduction and greater clarity. Anton/Bauer’s QRC-4K-S Gold Mount attaches instantly to Sony F5/F55 CineAlta cameras to accept Anton/Bauer batteries and offer the company’s consistent reliable power. It contains three PowerTap outputs for powering additional accessories to help professionals bring 4K productions to life. The QRC-4K-S is also compatible with the Sony AXS-R5 recorder.
The QRC-BMD Gold Mount powers the Blackmagic Design EF and MFT cinema cameras. As the Blackmagic EF and MFT cinema cameras are equipped with internal batteries that last up to 90 minutes, Anton/Bauer developed the new QRC-BMD Gold Mount to provide users with virtually uninterrupted power by allowing for a truly hot-swappable power solution utilizing the internal camera battery. When paired with a battery, such as Anton/Bauer’s DIONIC HC, the QRC-BMD can provide the camera with 91Wh of power for four hours, simplifying on-set battery management. The new QRC-BMD offers two PowerTap outputs to easily power additional accessories, such as monitors and recorders, and has also been designed to be used with Anton/Bauer’s MATRIX Cheese Plate.
The QRC-HILIO Gold Mount was designed to power Litepanels’ Hilio™ LED fixture in applications where DC power is essential. The QRC-HILIO allows users to snap two Anton/Bauer Logic Series batteries onto the back of the Hilio, providing a convenient and lightweight field lighting kit. As an added benefit, Anton/Bauer’s integrated hotswap feature provides uninterrupted lighting throughout the production day.
To help power the newest Litepanels Sola solutions, Anton/Bauer has introduced the QRC-LG Gold Mount. The QRC-LG provides flexibility and added convenience to the Litepanels Sola ENG Flight Kit, Sola 4 and Sola 6 LEDs. Integrated into the Gold Mount design is the Manfrotto™ Mini Clamp, which allows the QRC-LG to be mounted to a variety of lighting stands. What’s more, the QRC-LG has three PowerTap outputs, giving Litepanels Sola ENG Flight Kit, Sola 4 or Sola 6 the ability to be powered from one Anton/Bauer Logic Series battery, making for a truly portable lighting system.
