Battery-charging storage case targets on-the-go photographers
March 25, 2015
New gear for photographers from XSories includes the Large Power CapXule (£63.99), a storage case for a camera and accessories, with an internal battery pack to charge a camera on the move, and additional charge for smartphones and tablets. Also launched is the X-Steady Lite (£79.99), a stabiliser for an action camera or smartphone, and XShine (£39.99), an LED light that attaches via a camera’s hotshoe.
LARGE POWER CAPXULE
The Large Power CapXule is the ultimate accessory for on-the-go photographers. Offering portable power and organisation, the CapXule is a storage case that also charges batteries on the move. The CapXule ensures you are always fully loaded and ready to shoot, while also providing a solution to carry you entire camera kit with style and ease.
CAPTURE LIFE FOR LONGER AND DOCUMENT IT BETTER
The rationale behind the design of the Large Power CapXule was twofold. Its ability to prolong the battery life of your camera extends the length of time for shooting. An adapted version of XSories’ original CapXule model, a compact 2800mAh power bank was added to recharge your batteries. It can charge two GoPro batteries simultaneously (or one battery twice), after which the CapXule itself can be recharged to repeat the process. ￼
The Large Power CapXule also provides effective storage for your entire XSories camera kit. With numerous compartments – including a dedicated GoPro slot to keep your camera safe and secure on the move – the CapXule is a simple, multi-functional case to keep all of your XSories gear organised. The Large Power CapXule is available in two colourways – burgundy red and khaki green – and is priced at £63.99. Further information can be found at www.xsories.co.uk.
TAKE PROFESSIONAL SHOTS WITH XSORIES’ STABILISER: THE X-STEADY LITE
The fantastic X-STEADY LITE is an innovative gadget accessory that acts as a mount for your action and sports camera or smartphone, adding extra stability.
Whether skateboarding, skiing or snowboarding, you can make your content smoother thanks to XSories’ new stabiliser.
PROFESSIONAL QUALITY VIDEOS
For every day, for the holidays or at the skate park, the X-STEADY LITE is a great choice for those who are fed up with shaky images. Inspired by the X- STEADY in XSories’ professional range, it stabilises your shots and adds professional style fluidity to your photography. ￼￼
A TECHNICALLY SUPERIOR AND PRACTICAL PRODUCT
This light version (120 grams) is designed for small compact or action cams. Its compact size (15cm high x 23.5cm wide) makes this an essential accessory whether for travelling or for everyday life.
With its steel arc and pivoting handle, the X-STEADY LITE gives you complete freedom of movement and the stability needed for good films. The X-STEADY LITE is also compatible with smartphones, allowing for extra flexibility when using the device.
With the PHOLDER (available from XSories at £7.99), the product can be used with the majority of smartphone models. The PHOLDER (phone holder) combines your smartphone with any kind of tripod providing a universal screw head.
This is a particularly important aspect of the design of the X-STEADY LITE, as it ensures that the device can be used with everyday technology as well as specialised action and sports cameras. The X-STEADY LITE is available for £79.99 in consumer electronics shops, CORE shops and on the brand’s site at www.xsories.com/xsteady-lite-xstl3a001.html.
EXTEND YOUR FILMING WORLD BEYOND THE GREAT INDOORS OR DAYLIGHT HOURS
The XShine will cast new light on your close range subjects. Lightweight and quick to mount, XShine will give your films new luminosity. Use one, or mount up to three extra units for even better illumination in those dark places. Most compact cameras spend a large portion of their time in low light or dark places – that’s a lot of underexposed or poorly lit content being turned out. XShine was created to uncover unexplored areas in order to capture the best footage.
The XShine features a 180 lux, 36 LED array giving an effective range of 5 metres. In addition, to keep the light flowing, the XShine comes with a 3.7V Li- ion battery and charger. With its integrated Hotshoe mount 1/4in universal thread, XShine can be mounted on just about any camera, or integrated with the most popular action cameras on the market. You can either use it on its own, or place more on your set up by using the hotshoe mounting slots on the sides of the housing. ￼￼
Whether you are skating, snowboarding or just out exploring, you will always be film ready with the handy XShine! Gone are the days of limited light and bad exposure. The XShine is available for £39.99 in consumer electronics shops, CORE shops and on the brand’s site at www.xsories.com/xsteady-lite- xstl3a001.html.
