A big thing for me, as a location shooter, is portable power. Whether it’s for powering lights and cameras or charging them up when they’re dead, power on location is always a struggle. It always seems that more of the kit I take out with me uses power or now seems to drain power much faster than it used to as they cram more tech into cameras.
Blind Spot Gear, though, want to try to make life a little easier for us, though. The Power Junkie is a new adapter plate that lets you turn standard Sony NP-F batteries into a pair of USB sockets and a 7.4v output for powering cameras with dummy batteries.
