Hands-On Review: The Anton/Bauer Titon Base Battery Kit for the BMPCC 4K/6K

I had the opportunity to work with the Anton/Bauer Titon Base Battery Kit for the Blackmagic Pocket 4K and 6K cameras and jumped at the chance. The Titon Base battery has a QR (Quick Release) plate that allows you to mount your camera on it for a tight shooting package with extended run time. I’m accustomed to using external batteries, since I started with Aaton and ARRI SR film cameras, as well as ENG cameras and their battery bricks, before moving on to more modern camcorders, as well as those small internal batteries for DSLR and mirrorless cameras. Of course, with internal batteries, whenever you change your camera, you often have to adopt a new set of batteries and chargers. That is bad enough, but those internal batteries are limited in run time, and while great for the occasional compact run-and-gun shoot, or for being as inconspicuous as possible, the thought of building up a store of dedicated batteries and chargers just to get me through the shoot day makes me shudder.
