“It’s perfect to power my second Sony A7S II camera during weddings. I love that it allows swapping power banks without loss of power and corrupted files.”
– Pedro Portela, a wedding photographer
No matter what type of photography or film your making, if you’re on a long shoot power is going to be an issue. Consistent camera up-time is critical in video, time-lapse, or on a long photo shoot. A pause to swap out batteries can mean a missed shot and wasted time on set.
A first of its kind, the Case Relay provides uninterruptible power for a DSLR or mirrorless camera using any standard 5V USB external battery pack.
“I like that the Case Relay has an internal battery. That allows you to switch the external battery without interrupting the shooting.”
– David Pepe uses the Case Relay for time-lapse photography, including a three month time-lapse.
Case Relay Camera Power System
The Case Relay Camera Power system works in sync with the Relay Camera Coupler, designed specifically for your camera. A Relay Camera Coupler is inserted directly into the camera battery port, then connected to the Case Relay CPS. The Case Relay connects directly to any standard 5V external battery, commonly known as a portable USB charger, widely available at most stores or via TetherTools.com.
With Case Relay’s own secondary, internal 1200 mAh battery, if the photographer’s external battery pack runs low it’s easy to hot swap the external battery and not lose power to the camera. With the Rock Solid External Battery Pack (10,000 mAh) from Tether Tools, photographers will be able to shoot considerably longer than with a standard camera battery. A 10,000 mAh external battery will provide 3-10 times the power of most camera batteries, depending on the camera. That means that when you’re out on vacating, you won’t have to worry about carrying extra batteries with you or heading back to the hotel to charge a battery.
The Case Relay Camera Power System is also more cost-effective than purchasing multiple proprietary camera batteries and is compatible with many Canon, Nikon, Sony, Panasonic, Fujifilm, Olympus, and Black Magic cameras and can be powered by any 5V USB power bank any 2.1+A USB Wall Adapter or any Dtap (VMount) battery system. It can also power any monitors and accessories that use the Sony NPFL Series batteries. Best of all, the external battery pack you bring along to power your camera is non-proprietary. You can power your camera with the same 5V external battery pack you use to charge your phone or tablet.
What Photographers Are Saying About Case Relay
Michael Bloom uses the Case Relay for time-lapse sequences and says, “The Case Relay is well made and works flawlessly.”
Brian Kurtis is easy to use and works great for dog show event photography. “I have the Case Relay attached to the Rock Solid External Battery Pack powering my D750, tethered to our laptop. Before we got the Case Relay we would go through about 5 or 6 Nikon batteries in a day long assignment.”
Scott Martin uses the Case Relay as part of his night time motion control time-lapse photography and loves that the Case Relay gives him the ability to do a day to night time-lapse without worrying about changing batteries in the camera.
