The Sony HDV Handheld Battery & Light B&H Kit helps you extend your ability to shoot smooth handheld video on Sony HDV camcorders. Its foundation is the Switronix HDV-PRO Shoulder Support with V-Plate, which redistributes your camera's weight from arms to shoulder for improved balance. A Switronix 14.4V lithium-ion battery attaches to the back of the mount, adding necessary counterbalance and--with the included charger and 20" P-Tap power cable--assuring you of hours of comfortable shooting time. Rounding out the kit is the ultra-compact Switronix GP-H56S LED light. This versatile source of illumination is a completely positionable and dimmable 85W equivalent light designed to attach to your camera's shoe mount.
The Switronix XP-L90S is a 14.8V lithium-ion V-mount battery with a 98Wh capacity that can be transported carry-on without restrictions under IATA, ICAO, and UN regulations. The XP-L90S features a P-Tap output for powering 12V DC accessories, and a USB port capable of outputting up to 3A at 5V for powering/charging mobile and other devices. The battery automatically detects the camera load and calculates run-time and displays remaining power via a 4-LED power gauge.
The 14.8V output eliminates all 12V battery cutoff problems. For smaller cameras too low in voltage for this battery, Switronix offers optional voltage regulation cables such as the XP-DV-S20.
