Aaron,
The Power 2000 battery is physically and functionally compatible with the BP-945 in absolutely every manner and either battery will run either camera. The Power 2000 just packs a significantly longer-lasting charge than the BP.

Anton Bauer batteries

Hi guys,

I'm currently looking at an Anton Bauer battery set for my XL1. Why? Because these are batteries that are barely depletable, and you can attach and feed one of their camera lights from them, at the same time as the camera.

Has any of you ever used them? I can't find info on the Watchdog. Some user experience would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Battery Replacement brands for XL1S

I need to pick up some extra batteries for my XL1S and was wondering if anyone had any recommendations for or against any brand or types.


See a number of them out there other then the standard (and more expensive) Canon brand and was figured someone here had to have some experiences.


TIA

I also use Lenmar Batteries http://www.lenmar.com/ and their Mach 1 Fast Charger. I've been very pleased with their performance.

The Lenmars have a great reputation. (Jeff link is busted: try http://www.lenmar.com/)

Alternatively, I've been using Power-2000 BP-945-equivalents for nearly 2 years. Very long-lasting (much longer that the Canon brand), no apparent memory problems or significant capacity dissipation over time. They charge from the standard Canon BP chargers.

Welcome aboard Jan! I think this might be what you are looking
for (although I'm not 100% sure):

http://www.aspenelectronics.com/aspe...lized/xl7a.htm

I did a search (using the search feature off this board) and found
this thread where the above URL came from:

http://www.dvinfo.net/conf/showthrea...ighlight=Bauer

Hope this will help you some, and hi from your "neighbour"!

Somehow that top link seems not to be working anymore (it
returns a 404 not found now), which is weird. You could go to
their main site and contact them regarding such an adapter
though.

I could not find the adapter when browsing through their
catalog either. Perhaps it has been discontinued.

Good luck.

The link works for me.
You aren't using one of those "Mac" things, are you?

Same here. That Aspen link doesn't show anything. Oh well, I found some user stories. Still strange Chris doesn't have any on the site itself.

Just FYI, we offer both the Shoulder Brace designed specifically for the AB batteries, and a stand alone DC Converter with the industery standard XLR input, Canon DC plug output.

While the converter LEDs normally indicate the 12V levels, they can be set to 14.4V levels per request (no charge)

Thanks for the tips guys, especially the recommendation for the Power-2000 ones (which are also advertised as from VidPro it seems).

I've seen them around but am always leery of "never heard of them" brands even at good prices but I just picked a couple of them up. Thx.
