HDSLR and cinema accessory provider Switronix sent out a little tease in its newsletter today about the Blackmagic Cinema Camera that’s shipping later this month.
Are you guys as excited as we are about this beautiful, little guy?

Switronix has been known for its HDSLR power accessories that so effectively pair cameras like the 5D Mark II with external battery packs, as well as on-camera lighting gear. Given the uncertainty thus far about the Blackmagic Cinema Camera’s internal battery and lack of external power options, I’d say that an external power solution from Switronix is a good bet.
Stay tuned for the official announcement of whatever is coming from Switronix…

The XP-DV-CH features a regulated 7.9v battery paddle (LP-E6 type) and an inline female p-tap connector for 12vdc, housed in an enclosure. It also includes both red and green LED indication to display battery power status. The cable can be used in association with a Switronix accessory or used solo with a PRO-X series lithium-ion battery product.
