Gladstone & Giles - Power Bracket
I've built video taps for the Eclair ACL, and for the Aaton LTR
and XTR. The Aaton Tap covers Standard or Super Sixteen viewing
screens. The tap uses the internal Video options of the camera.
A simple and beautiful component, that can stay attached to the
camera. This does require moving the onboard battery to the side,
so I created a prototype bracket, and while traveling through
Europe, I discussed the project with Allan Giles of Camera Engineering
late one night. This led to Allan designing and manufacturing
the GLADSTONE & GILES - POWER BRACKET.
For Aaton LTR through XTR, the Power Bracket attaches
exactly as your on board battery, and then you attach your on
board battery to the bracket. Or you can use that NP-1 adapter
you already own.
Don't power your 12 volt accessories through your cameras precious
and expensive electronics. The Power Bracket allows you to:
> Use the Aaton camera's built in Amphenol 9 electronic connection
for a Crystal speed control or Zoom control.
> Power your video tap or an onboard monitor, or a lens light,
or eyepiece heater - without the hassle of a second battery and
cables hanging off of your camera.
> Power up to three different 12 volt accessories without drawing
power through your camera's electronics.
The "Gladstone & Giles Power Bracket" comes with
two 3-Pin lemo connectors built in (pigtails included), and one
amphenol-9 connector. The Amphenol is a power only socket and
does not connect to the camera electronics.
