I arrived at the set, set up my GPI PRO Rig, put the Moviecam LT on and ran my quick test that everything works.
We were shooting at 25 fps. My AB Hytron 50 batteries were fresh and fully charged, the 12/24V switch set to 24V and everything set up correctly but the camera would not speed up to 25 fps.
Also the jumper block was the correct one (feeding the Monitor separately from CAM/ACC)
At the same time the monitor kept going on and off in a similar pattern as the camera jumping from 24- 24.7 fps.
We found a cheap solution that pretty much defeats the purpose of using a steadicam but it made the job work for the situation, thank god.
Has any one had any similar experience. Hytron Batteries not feeding sufficient power? / Too thin cabling in the GPI post?
I really don't want to run into this problem again, especially now that cameras are getting more and more power hungry.
Thanks for any advice.
