Switronix Introduces Power Cable for Nikon DSLRs

Switronix has a new power cable for Nikon DSLRs that provides access to hours of runtime from any V-mount or 3-Stud battery. The Switronix XP-DSLR-EL15 power cable is compatible with all Nikon DSLRs that accept the Nikon EN-EL15 battery (like the Nikon D800 or D600).

The cables feature a regulated 9.2v battery paddle and an inline female P-Tap connector for 12vdc, housed in an enclosure. The XP-DSLR-EL15 also includes both red and green LED indication to display status of battery power.

Switronix power cables have been available for Canon DSLRs and other cinema cameras for quite some time and have proven popular for extending shoot time in video projects.  For more details on the new Switronix XP-DSLR-EL15, check out Switronix’s website.  It should be available soon at B&H Photo and other retailers.

Nikon D5200 Not Coming to the US Until 2013

Nikon D5200

The Nikon D5200 was announced yesterday throughout Europe, Asia and Australia; however, Nikon USA has remained silent.  It now appears that Nikon USA will not announce the D5200 until CES 2013 in January, which will give Nikon a shiny new DSLR to show off at the massive consumer trade show.

Accordingly, those of you hoping to get your hands on the D5200 in time for the holidays will just have to wait a little longer.  In the mean time, there’s sure to be some killer deals on the Nikon D5100 as it nears its end-of-life.
