Running an A7 for over 8 Hours

26 July 2018

Sony A7’s series of cameras are serious contenders in the full frame market... but all that processing power demands high capacity batteries for even modest shooting times.

The new Powerbase Edge is a 49Wh lithium ion battery mounts either to the bottom of the camera using a ¼-20 screw mount, or if you have it set up as a rig, it can mount using the V-Mount on the other side of the pack. The battery is feature-packed with two P-taps and two USB ports for additional accessories such a monitor or to even charge your cell phone. In addition, it has a multipurpose runtime LCD to provide remaining runtime in hours and minutes when connected to the camera, which when fully charged will read approximately 8.25 hours as that’s how long the Powerbase Edge will last on the a7 camera series. The LCD also acts as a charge indicator when connected to a charger, providing remaining charge time in hours and minutes. If you use FW50 batteries choose Core SWX’s PBE-A7; if you use the FZ100 style battery go for the PBE-A7FZ.

Sony cameras accepting the L-Series batteries such as the HXR-NX100 or PXW-Z150, can use the same Powerbase system; go for the PBE-S for an elegant solution.
