Rhino Camera Gear launches another Kickstarter campaign: Battery Holsters. To have batteries easily and immediately accessible when you need them most, RCG created a hard shell holster that holds two Canon LP-E6 batteries. An integrated belt clip allows you to attach it on to your pants, backpacks, and camera straps.
Battery Holsters will be compatible with Black Rapid straps. The belt clip on a Battery Holster is wide enough to attach to all of their straps securely. Equipped with a 1/4-20 brass insert in the rear of the belt clip, you can attach the optional Black Rapid carabiner and clip it on to virtually anything. Battery Holsters will work with any camera that takes a LP-E6 battery. These include the Canon 5D Mark II, 5D Mark III, 7D, 6D, & 60D. Depending on the funding success, other camera batteries will be added.
Typinator 5.5 is a new version of Ergonis‘ popular text expander. With the new concept of calculation fields, Typinator offers amazingly powerful text expansions for regular users without any programming skills.
The new calculation fields allow computations and assignments of computed values to variables. Until now, this could have been achieved with external scripts, but with the new feature, calculations can be embedded right into expansions. This opens the door to unbelievably versatile and flexible expansions without the need for any programming skills.
“Calculation fields are a rather simple concept, but the possibilities are virtually endless. In combination with input fields, you can use Typinator to write a complete bill with just a few keystrokes, with discounts, taxes, etc.,” said Guenther Blaschek, CTO of Ergonis Software. “Combined with some scripts – such as the Convert script from our Download Extras page – you can even include the amount in other currencies, based on the current exchange rate.”
In addition to the new calculation fields, Typinator 5.5 includes many other enhancements like improved matching for certain abbreviations with similar endings and better support for time zones. Another benefit of the new release is improved compatibility with OS X 10.8 (Mountain Lion) and many third-party applications like Safari, Google Chrome, Firefox, Opera, OmniWeb, Thunderbird, Mail, Pages, Scrivener, Sibelius, Nisus Writer, and others.
