Core SWX Introduces Hotswap Battery Plates

CoreSWX has debuted new short form factor hotswap/shark-fin plates for small cine cameras including the RED DSMC2 or ARRI Alexa Mini. 

CoreSWX said since the batteries aren’t “stacked” onto one another, users can easily remove the depleted battery while leaving the other battery connected. This avoids down time, allowing for continuous battery operation.

The GP-TS-SFF is a short form factor adapter that mounts directly to the existing v-type plate on the camera. It allows for continuous battery operation. It also has four powertaps for additional accessories.

The GP-TA-SFF adapter mounts directly to the existing three-stud mount plate on the camera. It allows for continuous battery operation, and for additional accessories. It has two powertaps.
