Quantum Instruments have released a new cable to power the Canon 5D MKII and 7D from Quantum’s Turbo 2x2 or Turbobattery: the SD7.
The SD7 cable is 220cm long, with a Canon battery dummy on one end and a multi-pin DIN plug on the other to connect the Canon 5D MKII & 7D to the Quantum TURBO 2x2 and TURBO 3.
Quantum batteries are normally associated with ultra-fast flash recycling, but there are many cameras that can also be powered by their range of power-packs! A heavy duty battery supply is especially important for video capable DSLR’s like the Canon 5D MKII and 7D and the Nikon D3, D90 & D300S and in the case of the Turbo 3 up to five hours of continuous video recording is available!
The SD7 will also be of interest to any photographer who needs to shoot stills continuously for long time periods, i.e. events, surveillance, time-laps or wildlife photography. For assignments in sub-zero conditions this cable allows the Turbo battery to be worn under clothing, protected from low temperatures that would normally drain battery power very fast.
Quantum’s Turbo 2x2 and Turbo 3 batteries are supplied with universal mains chargers. Vehicle chargers are also available.
The SD7 cable is available from Quantum retailers at £95 Plus Vat. For more details please visit thet Flaghead Photographic
