Hawk-Woods Double The Magic Posted: 20/09/2012
Hawk-Woods Double The Magic

Hawk-Woods have unveiled their new on-board power adaptor for the Blackmagic Design Cinema Camera.

Developed in association with James Tonkin of Hangman Studios; the Hawk-Woods adaptor has the ability to more than double the standard run-time of the camera whilst remaining compact, simple to use and quick to set up.

The Hawk-Woods DV-BMS uses the popular DV-F970 high discharge rate battery and steps-up the output to the cameras required 12v. Tests have shown an increase in run-time from around 90 to over 200 minutes.

This is the first in a range of powering options currently being developed by Hawk-Woods for the Blackmagic Camera and is expected to appeal to those who are looking to capture live, mobile action (such as sports or music events) and increase the available run-time of the camera without limiting the cameras mobility.

Hawk-Woods Adapts to Canon D7 Posted: 28/05/2010
canon adapter
Hawk-Woods have just announced a series of battery power adaptors for the Canon EOS D5 and D7 cameras. As those in the industry will know, these stills cameras are now being used prominently for their HD recording capabilities.
Hawk-Woods' DC-5D adaptors feature a cable mounted dummy LP-E6 type battery, which is linked to either a 2-pin D-Tap, or 4-Pin Hirose plug.
These adaptors allow the cameras to be powered from V-Lok (and other) types of battery when plugged into a suitable power output. This could be a rig mounted V-Lok plate, or stand alone V-Lok adaptor, like the Hawk-Woods VL-A1.
This is great news for users shooting HD video or time-lapse photography with either the D5 or D7, as the available run-time can be increased immensely. The advantages of using a single high capacity broadcast battery over dozens of standard Canon LP-E6 batteries are obvious.
The DC-5D1 (D-Tap version) and DC-5D2 (Hirose version) are available now from your preferred Hawk-Woods stockiest.
