Among other things, we now know why Anton Bauer had that big sale.

Yeah, you can really tell that their medical business is bigger than their Cinema/broadcast business with this new design.

I'm curious why you think this Alan. What is it that makes these more suited to the medical field than set life?
In my mind having a battery that has a rubberized shell makes complete sense with all of the abuse they take on set. But there may be other aspects I'm unaware of.

These are for sure set batteries, they're for HD cameras according to the description. Also they are being presented at a broadcast technology show, rather than a medical technology show.
Their design to me says AB is trying to look sleek and cool, probably to attract the generation of young new film makers who like buzz words and stuff like that.

I'm not saying that they're not awesome batteries. I'm saying that these batteries, at least from an industrial design standpoint, were most likely made first with the medical industry in mind.

What awesome hospitals are you guys going to?
Everything currently on their medical site is white, as I would expect, including white Dionics. Not to say these new batts won't also be used in a medical setting, white or not, I just think these are screaming for Red user attention both in their described purpose and visual appearance.

I wonder if an HC which is in the mid 300's cost mid 3000's when purchased by the medical field?
I have inquired what a new set of 150wh batts and the new charger cost..you know, to be cool with the new kids on set these days.
I have seen AVS 160WH gold mount batteries with a D-Tap AND a USB 5V outlet right on the batteries. I wonder if these new ones have any of that?
Posted 05 April 2014 - 02:57 PM
I predict that the price will stay at 330 for the HC, since the new one is msrp at 380...

Anton Bauer now available in V-mount branded as SACHTLER
Posted 07 April 2014 - 11:29 PM
V mounts, eh? Screaming for that Red user money. Quite frankly, good for them. I like the charger, and the ability to use it as a hot-swappable block batt. I'll be interested to see how often that is utilized, have to have more than one charger after all.
No need to look for adapters? Cause why buy one adapter when you can buy several batteries?
And to nitpick: it's 1 installed on a device plus 2 loose per carry on, not just 1 on device and 1 in a carry on
