The ways to rig your camera are limitless, it all depends on your shoot and budgets. Here is one of our favorite rigs, ideally suited for a cinematic application where weight matters.

 

Battery Power

Anton/Bauer Titon series

Designed to withstand the toughest assignments in the most extreme environments, Titon is the lightweight, reliable, travel-safe choice when capturing the shot on the first take is critical.

The Sony FS7 draws approximately 28 watts of power so Anton/Bauer Titon batteries are the ideal compact power source. Available in both V-Mount and Gold Mount, you can choose from 90Wh or 150Wh batteries.

Mounting the Titon battery

You can easily run your Sony FS7 from a V-Mount or Gold Mount Titon battery with Anton/Bauer’s dedicated camera battery brackets.

* V Mount Solution – Powering with Titon V-Mount 90Wh or 150Wh batteries requires an optional Sony XDCA-FS7 Extension Unit.

* Gold Mount Solution – Powering with Titon Gold Mount 90Wh or 150Wh batteries will require an optional Anton/Bauer QRC-FS7 to place on top of the Sony XDCA-FS7 Extension Unit.

 

Charging the Titon battery

For charging Titon series batteries, the Anton/Bauer LP Chargers are the perfect choice. LP chargers can rapidly charge of up to two or four batteries at the same time, while conserving energy and prolonging battery life to reduce the total cost of ownership.
