Akio Shimamura’s Micro Rig Shows Us How to Go Handheld for Days

Probably the most common feedback we receive from Blackmagic Pocket and Micro camera users is, to paraphrase, “with a Juicebox battery, my camera is finally usable.” The abysmally low 15-20 minute battery life of these otherwise wonderful little cams has them relegated to the dust covered shelves and bottom-most desk drawers of many initially optimistic videographers. We understand their disappointment. The ultra lightweight design of the Blackmagic Pocket and Micro cameras, combined with these cams’ potential for exceptional image quality, left us with high hopes for a true handheld camera capable of cinema quality footage. The remarkably short battery life of these cameras, however, leaves them tethered to their wall chargers and, for many practical, handheld purposes, unusable. Enter the Magic Power 2.0, Juicebox’s lightweight battery solution that will power these Pocket and Micro cameras for nearly eight hours on a single charge. Or, for an even longer trek, the Juicebox 95 watt hour v-mount battery (JBVB-95) will power one of these ultra small BMD cameras for 12.5 hours, potentially allowing operators a couple of days off leash of a charger or a wall to plug it into. These uncommonly thin v-mount batteries were designed to be a lightweight substitute for a traditional v-mount setup. Paired with one of Blackmagic’s Pocket or Micro cams, the Juicebox 95 watt hour v-mount battery (JBVB-95) gives users an incredibly long run time while keeping their rigs relatively lightweight.

Akio Shimamura has put together perhaps our favorite Micro Cinema Camera rig to date. Utilizing the JBVB-95 to power both the Micro Cinema Camera and the Blackmagic Video Assist, Akiro has managed to keep his rig minimal, balanced and functional. The battery is connected to the camera and monitor via its d-tap port so, in favor of a bulkier v-mount plate with an unnecessary v-mount power connection, Akio chose the SmallRig V-Lock Assembly 1846, a very minimal plate that still utilizes the v-mount battery’s quick mount/release function. The short rail rods and quick release plate at the bottom of Akio’s rig allow for a quick transition from tripod to jib to shoulder mount. The use of Blackmagic Design’s handgrip for Ursa Mini is especially clever. The handgrip not only allows for control of recording, auto iris and auto focus on the Micro Camera but, combined with the overall lightweight setup of this rig, allows Akio to go handheld, even for a long duration, when the need arises.
