By technical editor Matt Allard:
IDX have just announced the release of the AT-E2CMKII ENDURA V-Mount battery adaptor plate for Canon’s new C300 Mark II. The V-Mount adaptor plate allows you to use V-Mount batteries to power the C300 Mark II.
The plate is equipped with a Lemo connector that goes directly to the camera and comes with duel D-Tap outputs, capable of handling 50W each. The V-Plate design offers flexible mounting with 3 industry standard screw-hole patterns to adapt to virtually any cheese plate or camera support rod mounting accessory.
This from IDX:
“We are happy to expand our V-Mount accessory line with the AT-E2CMKII Canon C300 Mark II adaptor plate,” said Tomo Nishikawa, General Manager, IDX System Technology. “Canon continues to deliver great cameras and we are honored to continually build our relationship with them by delivering great power solutions for their cameras.” Nishikawa adds, “We understand that the C300 Mark II comes with an on-board battery, which is perfect for run and gun/handheld shoots; however, when it comes to shooting composed shots that include many accessories, a larger battery is necessary to power everything. This is where we see our new product help maximize production efficiency.”
