Cinematographer James Mathers Casts Power Solutions from Anton Bauer to Ride Alongside Actor Stephen Dorff for Indie Film Brake

The RED ONE has a good appetite for power, especially when youre running accessories like the zoom motor and monitors, says Mathers, who equipped his two RED ONE cameras with six Anton/Bauer HyTRON 140® batteries. The Anton/Bauer HyTRON 140 dependably powers the camera for well over an hour. The HyTRON 140 is a 140 Wh NiMH battery, designed for the power demands of todays HD gear and on-camera lighting systems. Offering excellent counterbalance for lens weight, it is ideal for a high-current draw and can be used with portable HMI lights. On Brake, Mathers took advantage of the HyTRON 140 to also power his 1x1 Litepanels when working with water necessitated using only DC power for the safety of the actor.
