Camos power options
Posted 17 November 2009 - 06:10 PM
Also any opinions on if I should go with an anton bauer plate or smaller batteries? Have lots of AB batts so thats best for me and I have never had anyone complain about me using them on a directors monitor but sony or panasonic batteries would definitely be lighter. Any opinions?

I sort of like keeping the director's monitor autonomous from my rig in all ways. Those monitors are always getting put down in weird places so I'm probably happier with a $60 battery instead of a $400 one being on the back.
There are compelling arguments on both sides of the coin.

Every director that's used it so far is just fascinated with it. Oddly enough, they all made the comment about a neck strap and a waist strap so they could just rest it against their guts

I should add that the monitor comes from the factory with 1/8" jacks for A/V in and A/V out. The D-Tap will provide power when a battery is mounted but will power the unit without battery. So I could have gotten away without the Hirose connectors (but they're so pretty)..
