To estimate how long the 268Wh V Mount/V Lock Li-ion Battery can power a Blackmagic Studio Camera 4K setup, you need to know the power consumption of the camera and any other accessories you plan to use with it. The Blackmagic Studio Camera 4K’s power consumption is approximately 30 Watts under typical usage scenarios.

Here’s a simplified calculation to estimate the battery life:

1. Battery Capacity in Watt-hours (Wh): This is the amount of energy the battery can store, which in this case is 268Wh.
2. Power Consumption: The amount of power your device (camera setup) consumes, measured in Watts (W). For the Blackmagic Studio Camera 4K, we’ll use an estimated consumption of 30W.
3. Battery Life Estimate: Divide the battery’s capacity in Wh by the device’s power consumption in W to estimate the battery life in hours.

Battery Life (hours)=Battery Capacity (Wh)Power Consumption (W)Battery Life (hours)=Power Consumption (W)Battery Capacity (Wh)​

Using the estimated power consumption of 30W for the Blackmagic Studio Camera 4K:

Battery Life (hours)=268 Wh30 W≈8.93 hoursBattery Life (hours)=30W268Wh​≈8.93hours

So, the 268Wh V Mount/V Lock Li-ion Battery could potentially power a Blackmagic Studio Camera 4K for approximately 9 hours under typical usage. Keep in mind, this is a simplified calculation that assumes constant power consumption and doesn’t account for variables such as the use of additional accessories, battery aging, or external factors that could affect power consumption. For more accurate estimations, consider the specific power requirements of all components in your setup and consult the battery’s documentation for its discharge characteristics.
