Prepping our Canon C-300’s for a rental later this week. We replaced the stock handles with NATO style handles which allows us to place the top monitor in better angles for shooting. An added bonus is that the NATO handles can be tucked away in the shipping case.

We have now added the PAG line of batteries to our rental inventory. These are 94 watt hour batteries, that comply with airline regulations on Lithium batteries. This is the main reason we are now invested in this system. They are gold mount and will also charge on a Anton Bauer charger. Here is a cool fact about these units. You can stack them to charge and on a camera. When one dies while on the camera, it switches over to the other battery. Make to sure to ask for the PAG system from us when your ready to hop on a plane.
