New accessories announced at NAB 2015 (for both A7s and Shogun)

NAB 2015 is over and done with, and here are some interesting accessories for the A7s and Shogun:

Accessories for the Sony A7s

  • Availability: 30 days from now.
  • Price: $60 approx.

APUTURE DEC EF to E mount lens adapter:

  • Availability: May 2015

Indipro power and audio solution

The IndiPRO Tools Dual Power Grid & XLR Audio Box is used to power your Sony A7S camera using two available Canon LP-E6 Battery Packs (not included). It also adapts two XLR inputs to a 3.5mm stereo mini output to provide 2 audio channels directly to your camera.

One end of the Dual Power Grid has a dummy Sony A7 battery that is inserted into the camera’s battery bay. The other end is connected with an 18? cable and features a space saving dual-sided battery plate that mounts one LP-E6 Battery Pack on each face. The batteries snap securely into the plate.

A clamp allows you to mount the unit to Light Weight Standard (LWS) 15mm support rods (not included). A built-in blue LED indicates sufficient voltage supply to the camera. You can hot swap the batteries without having to power off your camera

Accessories for the Atomos Shogun

Motion9 Cube Shogun cage:

This cage looks tough enough to protect the Shogun, but it does increase the weight substantially. Just to let you in on some engineering bad news – if the Shogun is impacted from the sides, the force will be transferred to the screen and it will crack, similar to what might happen without the cage. The only thing that can mitigate such a force is foam, like the kind you find inside Pelican cases.

  • Availability: Right now.
  • Price: $297

Shape cage for the Shogun:
