I have a Sony F3 and am looking to use it on my Pilot with a lightweight SLR lens. What I'm looking for is a power cable to go from the 2.1mm power connector on the top sled to the XLR input on the F3.

Anyone know a source for a cable?

I have the VLB version of the Pilot.

Hi Chris,

If your kit is complete, you should have a power cable in the kit with the 2.1mm power connector attached. Just buy yourself a female xlr4
connector and attach it to the cable..

Best,
Erik

Thanks Erik,

I bought the kit new but it didn't come with a power cable for the top stage. It only came with a video cable.

I've had it several years now but have always used it with an EX1 and haven't powered the camera from the sled.

I was looking for a cable already made if possible. I will put one together if there is no reasonable source for one.
