LAKE SUCCESS, N.Y., August 17, 1995
Canon U.S.A., Inc. has introduced two new optional battery packs designed specifically for use with its new Elan II cameras. The Battery Pack BP-50 is a dual power source which enables the camera to be operated with four AA-size alkaline or NiCd batteries.
The Battery Pack BP-5B is a high-capacity battery pack designed to be clipped onto a belt and provides extended power to the camera through the use of four D-size alkaline or NiCd batteries.
The Battery pack BP-50 contains a removable battery spacer which enables users to insert either AA-size batteries or standard 2CR5 batteries. In addition to supplying power to the EOS Elan II, the unit also provides and on/off switch and an additional shutter release button for convenient and comfortable vertical shooting.
The high-capacity external Battery Pack BP-5B will last up to 8.5 times longer than the standard 2CR5 battery which is the normal power source for the EOS Elan II. The BP-5B must be used in conjunction with the Battery pack BP-50 to supply power to the camera.
The self-contained unit is ideal for astrophotography and extremely cold environments where internal camera power sources normally freeze or are rapidly depleted. Its extended energy life makes it a perfect choice for outdoor photographers, hikers and extremely remote locations.
The Battery Pack BP-50 measures 6 x 3-2/5 x 2-3/5 inches and weighs 5-1/4 ounces. The High Capacity External Battery Pack BP-5B measures 5-7/8 x 3-1/8 x 1-9/19 inches and weighs 20.3 ounces.
