    • Switronix Torch LED BOLT Review


      from Rick Macomber / Added

      7,358 Plays / / 47 Comments

      This is the newest member of the Switronix Torch LED family. It’s called the BOLT. It’s 1/6th the size of a 12 inch LED Panel and it’s 2 times as bright. No kidding. It has two dimmers – one for the 32K set of LEDS and one for the 56K LEDS. You can control them separately or blend both the tungsten and daylight LEDs together to deliver a very bright light with a color temperature of around 41K. The BOLT draws 22 watts and has 200 watts of light output and a brightness throw of between 40 and 50 feet. You can also slide the diffusion filter into the included filter tray to soften the light. It can be mounted on the included ¼ 20 swivel cold shoe mount or it can be configured with an articulating arm on standard 15mm rods. It can also be mounted on a light stand with an adapter for outdoor use. The TL-F970 battery that was specifically designed for the BOLT is BIG. I’ve run the light on a recent job on a fully charged battery and it lasted a good 3 hours. And it still had juice left at the end of the gig. The unit also comes with a powertap output on the back so you can power the BOLT with a standard 14.4 volt DC brick battery by plugging in the included powertap cable. Now the bad news. The battery is BIG. The battery is actually too heavy for the charger to stay plugged into a wall outlet. So plan on charging this battery on a flat power strip. It can also be easily knocked off the back of the light. In my opinion the battery receiver was poorly designed and the battery does not really lock into place. However I will say that it never fell off while I was using it. If you purchase the BOLT right now they’ll throw in a free TL-F970 Battery and charger which is usually sold separately for $80. Contact Switronix or an authorized dealer for pricing. Model: Taylor Macomber Soundtrack: "AcidJazz" by Kevin MacLeod www.incompetech.com

          With the growing popularity of HDSLRs, weve gotten a lot of questions about doing remote start/stop with these cameras. Today Switronix announced their new Flex DSLR remote, which allows for easy, one-button start/stop with cameras such as the Canon 5D and 7D. Thanks to Ross at Switronix I got to play with it last week; watch my video above to learn more about this new piece of gear.

            There are lots of little LED lights on the market these days, and Switronix’s new TorchLEDs are a great combination of size, strength and value. They’re about the size of a fist, weigh mere ounces, are solidly built, and include a dimmer and diffusers. Check out the video to see the different models and even more features.

              This is a quick test of three small, battery powered LED lights... The Ikan 312, the Switronix Torch LED, and the Lite Panel Micro Pro. They are all compact and virtually heat free. The Ikan and Switronix can shift from Tungsten to Daylight via dimmer knobs and run on Sony Batteries. The Lite Panel runs on AAs.

              • At the Bench: Switronix JetPack Breakout Box

                1,034 Plays / / 5 Comments

                Rare is the camera kit that has no accessories hanging off it. Monitor, lens controller, wireless transmitter, signal converter, timecode clock, focus rangefinder -- sometimes the camera can barely be seen under the accessories. These devices need power, and often the cameras themselves do not have enough outputs available. Switronix has created several versions of the JetPack, a battery mount (Anton Bauer or V-lock) with multiple power outputs in a variety of useful voltages. Each version has multiple mounting points to use with battery rigging solutions such as the Wooden Camera Battery Slide or the Anton Bauer Matrix Plate. Except for the P-Taps, which feed power out directly from the battery, all outputs are fully regulated to the specified voltage. The JP-A-EPIC ("A" for Anton Bauer, JP-V-EPIC for V-Lock) is designed for use with the RED EPIC and Scarlet cameras. Outputs: - 2x unregulated P-Taps - 1x cable feed to plug into a RED EPIC or Scarlet camera - 2x Lemo-4 12v socket - 1x Lemo-2 5v socket - 1x USB 5v socket For convenient mounting on the RED cameras, the Jetpack is also compatible with the Wooden Camera Quick Back. The JP-A-BMCC (JP-V-BMCC for V-Lock) is designed for use with the Blackmagic Design Cinema Camera. Outputs: - 2x unregulated P-Taps - 1x cable feed to plug into a Blackmagic Design Cinema Camera - 1x Lemo-4 12v socket - 1x Lemo-3 7.2v socket - 1x Lemo-2 5v socket The JP-A-XLR (JP-V-XLR for V-Lock) is designed for cameras accepting an XLR-4 power input, such as the Sony PMW-F3. Outputs: - 2x unregulated P-Taps - 1x cable feed ending in XLR-4 12v plug - 1x Lemo-4 12v socket - 1x Lemo-3 7.2v socket - 1x Lemo-2 5v socket For the new Sony PMW-F5 and PMW-F55, AbelCine asked Switronix to make a modified version of the Jetpack. The JP-A-BFIS (JP-S-BFIS for V-Lock) mounts directly to and feeds power through a V-Lock plate. In addition to the P-Taps, the other outputs are all wired ARRI standard, matching those on the Alexa cameras. Outputs: - 2x unregulated P-Taps - 1x unregulated male V-Lock plate - 2x Fischer-3 12v sockets - 1x Lemo-2 12v sockets - 1x USB 5v socket For more info on the different JetPack models, visit our blog: http://blog.abelcine.com/2013/02/19/switronix-jetpack-battery-breakout-box

                  As I mention in my Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera review, the BMPCC takes a lot of power to keep dishing out the dynamic range love.

                    • The Powerbase-70 Battery for Canon HDSLRs

                      The Switronix Powerbase-70 is a new battery system for the Canon 5D Mark II and the Canon 7D. It combines a 70 Watt-hour V-Mount battery with a Canon power adapter that plugs right into your camera. With 70 watts of power the battery will run the camera for 6 times longer than a normal Canon battery. Additionally, the system features two P-taps, a battery gauge, and shoe for direct camera mounting. This is a great way to get longer record times on your HDSLR, and at the same time power multiple accessories. Check out the video above to learn more. Also check out the various accessories I mention in the video: the P-tap charger, BlackMagic adapter, the AJA Adapter, the Zacuto Z-Cage, and the BlackMagic HDMI-to-SDI converter.
