Atomos Announces New ‘Power Station’ In Field Power Solution

By Anthony Thurston on October 29th 2014

Atomos, the company behind the popular field recorders like the Ninja and Shogun, has just announced a new power solution. They call it the ‘Power Station‘, and it is meant to power up to three devices in the field.

As you can see from the image above, the Atomos Power Station is a power brick that you can attach below your camera that can provide power to LED lights, Monitors, External Recorders (like the Ninja or Shogun), even your DSLR (with the needed adapter).

The Atomos Power Station gets its power from one of two Sony L-series batteries (you can get adapters for Canon LP-6, and Nikon EN-EL15 batteries if you prefer). The batteries are hot swappable and both have their own power indicators so you know how much juice is left in each one.1083145

Seems like it could be a useful device for when a larger power source like a vagabond is not necessarily needed. I would be curious to see how long one of these lasts under a full load for an entire shoot.

If you are interested these new Atomos Power Stations are now available for pre-order over on B&H for $295 and are expected to begin shipping in November.

    There is a cheaper solution on amazon for 1/6 the price and 5x the capacity.

    Wouldn’t it be lighter and cheaper to invest in some rechargeable batteries?

      But I think this would be useful to double up on recharging other devices such as cell phones in the field where power sources are scarce.

      You don’t have a spare battery for your ‘phone?
