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.

Switronix Bringing Power Accessories to the Blackmagic Cinema Camera?

Blackmagic Cinema Camera

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?

Check in this month to see the cool accessories we have developed for the Black Magic Camera.  -Switronix Newsletter

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…
