In terms of power consumption, is it better to turn off high power accessories (i.e. monitor, camera) between takes, or does the power up/down consume more power than you are trying to save? This is for rests of a minute or more - long enough where you would dock the rig, but not necessarily head off to craft services.

Much Thanks,
Afton

My guys never power the rig down unless we are going to move or something like that, we put the TB-6 in standby but leave everything else running (Right now the camera I'm using is the Thompsen Viper) We have lot's of batteries and chargers so it's not really a problem, and you want to leave the HD Camera on all the time anyway to help prevent backfocus drift
