News : Anton/Bauer Designs New Blackmagic Cinema Camera Gold Mount

Offers an Uninterrupted Power Solution for the Latest Must-Have Camera

(Shelton, CT--October 19, 2012) Anton/Bauer®, part of Vitec Videocom, a Vitec Group company, and a premier global provider of batteries, chargers, lighting and other mobile power systems for the professional broadcast, video and film industries, is pleased to announce its QRC-BMD Gold Mount® solution for the new Blackmagic Design EF (Electro-Focus) and MFT (Micro Four Thirds) Cinema Cameras. Anton/Bauer’s latest introduction further highlights the company’s dedication to providing innovative portable power solutions.



Designed for the ever-evolving needs of today’s cinema and television production professionals, the Blackmagic EF and MFT Cinema Cameras come with an LCD touch screen and feature a 2.5K image sensor with wide, 13 stops of dynamic range, a built-in SSD recorder, open-standard uncompressed RAW and compressed file formats, and, depending on the model, compatibility with quality EF or passive MFT lenses. As the Blackmagic EF and MFT Cinema Cameras are equipped with internal batteries that last up to 90 minutes, Anton/Bauer developed the new QRC-BMD Gold Mount to provide users with virtually uninterrupted power. When paired with a battery, such as Anton/Bauer’s DIONIC® HC, the QRC-BMD can provide the camera with 91Wh of power for four hours. The new Gold Mount has also been designed to include Anton/Bauer’s MATRIX Cheese Plate and two PowerTap outlets to power additional accessories easily.

“Anton/Bauer’s QRC-BMD essentially gives Blackmagic Cinema Camera users a ‘swappable’ power solution to ensure the camera is continuously powered and ready for filming at all times,” says Paul Dudeck, Anton/Bauer vice president of sales, the Americas. “When you are working with an internal camera battery, once the battery depletes, you are down for the two hours or so that it takes to charge. This new Gold Mount, however, provides a ‘hot-swap’ solution, providing continuous power, as it is easy to swap our battery out. Users will have the comfort of knowing that during that swap, the camera’s internal battery kicks in, so there is never any downtime while shooting on set.”

Anton/Bauer has also designed the QRC-BMD to be compatible with the company’s mounting bracket for 15mm or 19mm rod systems. It can also be adapted to third-party support systems (15mm or 19mm clamp kits sold separately).

For those interested: I did receive a response to my e-mail today (six days later --granted, my inquiry went in over the Thanksgiving Holiday week).

Here is the pertinent info. received from Anton Bauer:

"The product is called the QRC BMD and the list price is $249 and is available from any Blackmagic Design reseller."

I'm not sure why that couldn't have just been posted in the first place. ;-)

Now we just need to receive our camera!

Jonas,

Anton/Bauer does not post prices online as we are a manufacturer that has an authorized dealer network that posts actual costs of the items. I would be happy to reccomend a dealer local to your area if you'd like me too. Pricing and availability can be happily discussed with one of our product specialists and I promise, as I know time is valuable for our customers and we will not keep you on the phone longer than you have to. An alternative is to email Anton/Bauer directly at americas@antonbauer.com which should not take anymore time than it does to post Creative Cow.

Thanks for your post Jon, but I'm not sure how helpful it really is ("It's all a big secret; you have to actually call the company for any information").

We have already ordered and paid for our BMCC, but who knows when it will arrive (i.e. "shipping alongside the camera itself" doesn't really mean anything right now). Regarding "call for a price," going from previous experience, that tends to mean "out of your price range." Too bad I can't get a ball park number (MSRP) without having to actually call the company to see if it's even worth considering (potentially wasting valuable time just to find out it's way out of reach --the same thing I could find out if the MSRP was simply posted).

Jonas,

I am a Product Specialist with Anton/Bauer. The QRC-BMD will be shipping alongside the availablity of the camera itself, so the two will tie in nicely together. To discuss pricing, please feel free to give Anton/Bauer a call at 203-929-1100.

All the best,

Jon

Searching "Gold Mount Black Magic" or even just "Black Magic" on their website yields no search results. That's the only link provided in the announcement above. Any clue as to where to find more information? Price? Availability? etc.
