Atomos has been killing it in the digital recording world with their affordable video recorders and recently announced a new product called the Power Station. The Atomos Power Station will power your camera and up to 5 other devices through 3x DC and 2x USB ports all for only $295. You can pre-order the Atomos Power Station from B&H Photo Video here.
This power solution is pretty exciting to me. Lets take a closer look at some of the Power Station’s features.
The Atomos Power Station wil work with a host of popular cameras like the A7s, GH4, 5D Mark III, FS700, C100 and many more.
It looks like the Power Station will work with a couple different battery systems including the very popular Sony L batteries. This is fantastic because NP-F batteries can be found for very cheap and can be used on so many different types of gear.
There are a couple features that really set this system apart from others. First, the Power Station is hot swappable insuring you’re never without power. I also like how you will be able to check the status of each battery on the Power Station. Sounds simple, but there are a lot of power solutions out there that do not have this feature. Here is a list of features you’ll find on the Power Station:
- Dual Battery System
- Mounts Beneath Camera via 1/4″-20 Screw
- Compatible with Sony L-Series Batteries
- Batteries are Hot-Swappable
- Dual 6.2 to 8.4 VDC Power Outputs
- DC Splitter Cable
- Dual USB Power Outputs
- Independent 5-Step Battery Level Meters
- Two 2600 mAh Batteries Included
You can view all the features in detail on the Atomos website.
