and 1x2ft (30x60cm) sizes, the
smaller two sizes being able to be run
off camera batteries.
And finally for the lighting section,
Zylight has its new Pro-Panel variable
colour LED soft light available in 1×2
and 2×2 configurations. It adjusts
from tungsten to daylight with an up
to 95 CRI rating, is fully dimmable and
provides a wide, 110-degree beam
angle. And while it ships with an AC
power cable, it can also be powered by
battery through its three-pin XLR port.
Batteries
All of which brings us to Anton
Bauer and batteries. The company
will be forgiven for resting on its
laurels this year given the praise
still ringing out for the Cine battery
it launched at IBC2015. Not only do

these follow a form factor more suited
to modern cameras (i.e. not a brick)
than many of their counterparts, but
also have the novel feature of an LCD
time remaining display. This updates
automatically if you connect other
devices via D-Tap, and is proving to
be much-loved by users who have
bought the 90 or 150 WH models. Most
recently, the company has updated its
Performance Quad Charger to satisfy
new regulations set by the IATA, and
discharge their Li-Ion batteries to the
30% SoC level required for safe air
transportation.
Switronix had approached the
same problem from a different
angle, its Hypercore Prime using a
two-part system to provide a high
capacity battery which can be legally
transported without restrictions under
IATA, ICAO, and UN regulations.
Also featuring a backlit
runtime LCD on the
front (coupled with
a wraparound LED
grid indicating charge
status), the battery
has
been
scaled
vertically for better

weight distribution and features a
"slimmy" adapter. This allows the user
to detach the back half of the battery
pack and use it as a standalone power
resource for, for example, gimbals and
other camera stabilisation devices.
Block Battery, meanwhile, has
been working on cutting charge time
in half with new 560 watt hour blocks.
The blocks come in three design
configurations: the switchable voltage
S600 designed for power-hungry
cinematic camera rigs, providing
outputs of 28.8v or 14.4v at up to
15amps in either voltage; the dual
voltage D600 designed for cinematic
or lighting production applications
where 14v and 24v outputs are
required simultaneously; and the T60,
a 30v battery designed for powerhungry HMI lighting applications. This
provides 600 watt hours
of capacity, while an
extra high-capacity T800
provides 800 watt hours.
As IDX points out,

manufacturers, and it reckons it has hit
the nail on the head with its DUO-C95
pack, which fits 93Wh capacity into a
slim form factor weighing just 1.3lbs.
For those needing even longer run
times, the DUO-C190 weighs just
2.3lbs. with a capacity of 185Wh
and supports a continuous load of
11A/120W.
PAG's PL150 Series of PAGlink
Intelligent Linking Batteries uses the
latest high-capacity Li-Ion cells to
create a 150Wh battery that is housed
in the same case as the established
96Wh models. Batteries can be linked
to multiply capacity, from 150Wh to
300Wh with just two batteries. The
current draw capability increases from
8A to 12A when V-Mount batteries are
linked (from 10A to 12A for the Gold
Mount option). The 150Wh batteries
can be linked with the 96Wh versions
for charge or discharge.
