Switronix finally got around to taking the wraps off of its previously teased Powerbase for the new Blackmagic Cinema Camera. The PB70-BMCC is a 70wh 14.8v lithium-ion battery pack that nearly quadruples the runtime of the BMCC’s built-in 90 minute battery.
The Powerbase-70 mounts under the camera doubling as a grip or may attach to a Camera support via its 1/4-20 release plate or V-mount.
Wired as a 14.8v battery pack, it can provide extended power to up to two additional 12vdc devices, as well as other devices requiring lower voltage through an additional XP power regulation cable. The pack is also furnished with a 1/4-20 on either side to mount accessories.
Additionally, existing Powerbase 70 (e.g., 5D Mark II compatible models) owners can take advanage of Switronix’s new GP-DV-BMCC, which is an interchangeable regulator block for the Powerbase-70 to be used with BMCC.
