PRESS RELEASE: Powerbase-70 Now Available To Vast Camcorder Market
(LONG ISLAND, NY) – APRIL 6th, 2011 – Switronix is proud to announce their new Powerbase-70 PRO, a versatile power solution available for a wide array of camcorders in both the professional video and DSLR markets. While already compatible with popular models including the Panasonic AG-AF100 and Canon 5D, 7D, 60D, T2i, T3i and T3 cameras, the Powerbase-70 PRO is now available for Canon BP style, Sony L-series, EX and F3 and Panasonic CGR style cameras.
One of the unique aspects of the PB-70 PRO is the ability for the users to maintain this battery system independent of the camera they are shooting with. Users can simply purchase the appropriate connector block to allow compatibility to their camera. Current Powerbase-70 users do not need to purchase the PB-70 PRO to utilize the new connector blocks. All new connector blocks are compatible with existing Powerbase models.
"The PB-70 PRO preaches convenience", says Switronix product specialist Daniel Moore. "You invest in one battery system to power each camera in your arsenal via easily interchangeable converter blocks. The PB-70 PRO is also a standard v-mount battery pack, enabling it to mount onto virtually any setup."
The PB-70 PRO is also furnished with two p-tap ports to power additional on-board devices. While a standard 7.2v battery system may sufficiently run your camcorder for a couple of hours, it does not have the capacity to power additional accessories. Switronix’s 70 wh 14.8v lithium-ion professional grade Powerbase-70 PRO allows users to power multiple essential devices such as an on-camera light, monitor and other production accessories; a vital need for the contemporary videographer and photographer.
Furthermore, the PB-70 PRO provides upwards of six times the runtime of standard OEM batteries. A 4-LED power gauge allows users to easily monitor their charge with the tap of a button.
