(Long Island, New York--May 26, 2011) Switronix and Zacuto will continue their successful collaborative relationship working on cutting-edge DSLR rig setups. Both companies are leading brands in the DSLR community and have been working together since 2005.

Switronix has helped reenergize this collaboration through the release of their new Powerbase-70 PRO, a versatile new V-Mount battery compatible with major camcorders including the Panasonic AG-AF100 and CGR style cameras, Canon 5D, 7D, 60D, T2i, T3i, T3 and BP style cameras, and Sony L-Series, EX and F3 camcorders. Depending on the camera model, the PB-70 PRO can double or even triple a camera's runtime compared to OEM batteries.

Zacuto's recent introduction of their multi-purpose Zwiss Plate presents a sleek mounting option allowing users to mount articulating arms, rods, batteries, converter boxes and various other camera accessories to your support system. Users can utilize the Zwiss Plate to mount a variety of accessories or brick style batteries and battery plates. The Zwiss Plate works with both 3-Stud and V-Mount style batteries, including Switronix's Powerbase-70 (see photograph below).

"Jens Bogehegn, Steve Weiss & Mandy Rogers are truly innovators in the DSLR community," says Switronix product specialist Ross Kanarek. "We are extremely proud to have this relationship with Zacuto and look forward to working with them on exciting new rigs for DSLR shooters."

Over the past decade, Switronix has established itself as one of the most prominent suppliers of batteries and charging solutions in the professional film and video industry.
