Hahnel HC-5D MkII Battery Grip
The grip is fitted with a vertical shutter release, making shooting with the camera in a vertical position is just as comfortable as shooting horizontally. Power is doubled through multiple power sources. One or two Li-Ion batteries or 6 AA Mignon alkaline or rechargeable Ni-MH batteries can be used.This is especially useful when taking advantage of the camera's movie mode or Live View mode.
Built-in Power Management regulates the power output to the camera for maximum efficiency. The Power Management detects use of Li-ion or AA batteries automatically. Having the vertical grip allows the user to shoot from a more comfortable and stable position and therefore gives easier handling with larger lenses.
Some Canon DSLRs do not have an integrated infrared receiver and only offer the remote control as an expensive separate accessory. hähnel has managed to create the perfect solution by introducing a battery grip with an infrared remote control system. This enables such users to experience the benefits of a fully integrated remote control system, even if their particular camera does not offer such an advantage.
Vertical Shutter Release
The “Infra/Infrapro” Ranges are fitted with innovative vertical shutter release, making shooting with the camera in a vertical position just as comfortable as shooting horizontally. HC-50D Infrapro features an additional set of controls, which replicates the camera’s original controls.
The BatteryGrips come with an Infrared Remote Control, allowing remote shooting within a range of up to 10-12m and reducing camera shake. The Remote control transmitter provides autofocus before shutter release and continuous shutter release or bulb function for as long as the button remains pressed.
Built-in Infrared Receiver
The “Infra/Infrapro” Range is specially designed for digital SLRs without an integrated infrared remote receiver. This gives an added benefit of a remote control facility to SLRs without an existing built-in system.
Flexible Power Solution
Some of the BatteryGrips offer a choice of 2 power sources: 1. 1 or 2 Li-ion battery packs offer maximum performance. 2. Rechargeable Ni-MH or alkaline AA batteries can be as a backup solution.
With 2 Li-ion Battery Packs the available power is approximately doubled for longer, uninterrupted camera use. With the BatteryGrip in place you avoid running out of power at a critical moment.
Built-in Power Management regulates the power output to the camera for maximum efficiency. 1 or 2 Li-ion Battery Packs, even at different charge levels, can be used. The Power Management detects use of Li-ion or AA batteries automatically.
