I own a Panasonic 7" , I now need to have it wired and have a good method of mounting it to my rig. I have contacted one company about the wiring, and having a Anton Bauer battery mount placed on it. I will not say the name of the company but I have contacted them three times over the past few months and after talking to one person, they say that they will have to get back to me but never have.
Soooooo, Can anyone please point me in a direction to have the following three things done to my 7" LCD.
1-Cable that can accept video from the XCS digital level. (with or without power).
2-Cable or back battery mount power supply.
3-Mounting to XCS dual rod monitor post, Or a new 1 1/2" monitor bracket.

Any help would be gratefully appreciated.

Thank You,
Ari Gertler

Hi Ari,

The only thing I can help you with is the Anton Bauer adapter (QR7-LCD) .
Read this PDF attached, it is about this adapter from Anton Bauer made specificly for the Panasonic 7". I own one with this adapter and it works great.

Good luck with the XCS cable adapters.

I would steer you away from AB's adapter for that monitor. I bought one [and still have it too] but i feel there is too much flex from it.

I am still toying with my own design for a mount/ batter bracket for that monitor. Something my machinist can make for me which will allow me to not only mount it solidly to my sled but to be able to add a Dionic to the back for more mass. And the ability to pan and tilt the monitor with out effecting its center of gravity too much.

Maybe if there are enough of us out there looking for a solid solution for the Panasonic 7inch, one of the manufactures will make something cool for us?

Count me in for an order of one unit.
