AB-cine-chartSMAnton Bauer quickly became a staple for both video and broadcast cinematographers with their robust and reliable batteries. With their new CINE 90 and 90 VM, along with the CINE 150 and 150 VM breaking into the market in 2016, they’re only getting better. The CINE battery series is designed specifically for digital cinema cameras and camera stabilizer systems. The lightweight, Li-Ion CINE batteries are available in either Gold Mount or V-Mount and boast up to 12 amps of continuous power.

Check out our new charts for an overview of the key technical specs for both the CINE and Broadcast models. These specifications also translate into differences in production workflow, all of which need to be taken into consideration when choosing the right Anton Bauer battery for your project.

Litepanels’ Astra series is designed with premium quality, high CRI, surface-mount LEDs, which are paired with custom designed TIR (total internal reflection) optics. The design follows the one square foot form factor of many popular Litepanels models. Now, with the introduction of the Astra Soft Bi-Color LED panel, the Astra line offers a diffused lens with a soft light alternative, which replicates the effect of a softbox. The Astra line is compact, portable, and powerful.

Check out our new chart, above, for an overview of the key technical specs for each model. These specifications also translate into differences in production workflow, all of which need to be taken into consideration when choosing the right Astra for your project.
