Powering Sony's 4K FS5 and FS7

06 August 2018

The NANO-U98 for the Sony FS5 and Sony FS7 is a 98Wh lithium ion pack equipped with a LED power gauge, 1 USB, and 1 p-tap, making it capable of powering additional accessories such as an on-camera light. The batteries will charge on Sony OEM chargers, allowing you to extend the service life on your already existent chargers. That gives you the option to feed multiple accessories, as well as powering the camera for hours.

FS7 goes V-Mount

If you’d rather use more of a brick style battery option for your FS7, we have V-Mount and Gold Mount options as well as the appropriate mount plates. The plates, GP-S-FS7 (V-mount) and GP-A-FS7 (Gold mount), mount directly to the back of the FS7 as alternative options to the XDCA-FS7. The plates simply adapt the camera to V-mount. They have a 4-pin XLR input option and two p-taps.

If you prefer an even more advanced mounting option, there’s the compact Jetpack series offering all the power outputs you’ll need. In addition to having the same power options offered on the plates, the JP-V-FS7 (V-mount) and JP-A-FS7 (Gold mount) also includes one USB, one 5v Lemo output, and two 12v regulated Hirose 4-pin outputs.

Now let’s talk what batteries to put onto these mounts! The Hypercore series of lithium ion battery packs offer different capacities from 98Wh to 190Wh, in either V-mount or Gold mount. The 98Wh options are the Hypercore 9 Mini and Hypercore Slim 98 (both 12A continuous load), the 150Wh is Hypercore 150 (10A continuous load), and the 190Wh is Hypercore Prime (10A continuous load) which is a two-part split battery to make it acceptable for air travel.

All Hypercore batteries deliver SMBUS data to the cameras LCD/VF, and are equipped with rubberized housing, a backlit multipurpose runtime LCD, LED power gauge, 1 P-tap, 1 USB, hibernation mode, storage mode, and compatible charging (What more could you need!?).

Very similar to the Hypercore packs is the more entry level option, the NANO series. They are 98Wh, and the only differences from Hypercore are they have a lower continuous load at 8A and no multipurpose runtime LCD.
