Cine Gear 2014: Switronix Jetpack X

At Cine Gear 2014, Switronix showed the updated version of their popular Jetpack breakout box - the Jetpack X.

The Jetpack X builds on the features of the original Jetpack, but adds a built-in battery backup capable of withstanding a 200w load for up to five minutes, even when batteries are not connected. It is also incredibly versatile, featuring three LEMO outputs (5V, 7V, 12V), a USB power connection, and two unregulated powertaps, along with a 2-pin Amp connector (located behind the included cheese plate) that can connect directly to ENG cameras. Watch my video above as Jose Flores from Switronix walks me through the features of the new Jetpack X.

Tutorials & Guides
Rare is the camera kit that has no accessories hanging off it. Monitor, lens controller, wireless transmitter, signal converter, timecode clock, focus rangefinder -- sometimes the camera can barely be seen under the accessories. These devices need power, and often the cameras themselves do not have enough outputs available. Switronix has created several versions of the JetPack, a battery mount (Anton Bauer or V-lock) with multiple power outputs in a variety of useful voltages.
