More about the Maxell Camera Accessories Kit:
Power Shoe Adapters
Maxell’s Power Shoe Adapters were developed to maximize the potential of the camera shoe mount. The 3-Way Power Shoe Adapter (HS-D) is the entry level offering, featuring three cold shoe mounts. When mounted, the HS-D will allow the camera operator flexibility to use multiple additional camera accessories, such as radio mics, wireless receivers, on-camera lights, etc.
The HSBM-12W and the HSBM-36W are the mid-range and high end offerings in the Power Shoe lineup. Similar to the HS-D, the HSBM 12W has three additional cold shoe mounts, but has the added feature of an NP-F type battery mount, one power tape compatible input, and one hirose input. The HSBM-36W has three additional cold shoe mounts as well, and provides top-end power via a BP-U type battery mount, one power tap compatible input, and one hirose input. Both provide a dedicated source to power hungry on-camera devices.
All of Maxell’s Power Shoe Adapters mount to any and all cameras with a cold/hot shoe.
Maxell’s Shoe Clamp (HS-C) is a single cold shoe adapter designed to conveniently connect to the handle of most cameras, and/or a camera rig. With a locking clip, the lightweight shoe clamp allows the user to mount an additional piece of on-board hardware simply by clipping to the handle of their camera or rig. The Shoe Clamp features a super lock tight clamping mechanism and heavy foam inner ring to fit most camera handles/rigs.
Specs for the Power Shoe Adapters and Shoe Clamp can be found HERE.
The 4-way Power Connector (PC-MF4) provides one male power tap compatible connector to four female power tap compatible receptors, allowing the user to run additional hardware off a single battery connection. The Male/Female Power Connector (PC-MF) is a single male-to-female combined and fully customizable power tap compatible power connector which, once plugged into a device and powering the equipment it’s been wired to, provides another female socket.
USB Charge Adapter
Armed with a power tap (male) compatible connector on one end, and a 2 amp USB connector on the other, the USB Charge Adapter (SP-PCUSB) allows the user to re-charge any smart device off of their camera battery, therefore making the camera a back-up power source. The USB charge adapter cable will recharge a smartphone, tablet or other smart device, making it an essential tool for anyone shooting in remote locations where the only available power source is the camera battery.
