These days, almost everything we use for photography or video is battery powered, from cameras themselves to sliders, gimbals, monitors, lights, portable backup solutions and all other kinds of doohickies. One of the biggest names in batteries for photographers and filmmakers is Anton Bauer, but their batteries are shrinking, with the new Titon SL series offering larger capacities in smaller cases. We caught up with them at IBC 2019 to find out more.
As a video shooter, I have needs and one of the big ones is power. Shooting 4K video and RAW video requires a LOT of juice and very often I am powering more than just a camera. I could have microphones that are pulling power from the camera battery. I could also have external monitors, recorders and lights.
