Can someone help me figure out what batteries to buy? Specifically I'm looking at batteries for the XL2 and I'm not exactly certain how long I can expect the various batteries to last. I want to be able to shoot for an extended period of time without access to AC, perhaps 4-6 hours of shooting. Thanks

There is an excellent adapter plate that allows you to use Anton Bauer bricks on the Canon cameras. It will allow you to shoot for as long as you could ever stand to hold the camera. It also helps balance that terribly frontheavy camera. We sell them at Abel Cine Tech but they are available at numerous other places as well.
