Hi Everyone


I am new to Steadicam operations but have purchased a couple of systems to go after what i see as a niche market in my area. By profession I'm am a stills guy that swore I would never have a need for videography (So much for that theory huh?) So now I have two systems (2nd one on the way) I'm needing to advice on what I need to do to supply power to the a monitor, and a caged DSLR (right now a D3S which will become a Nikon 800 or 810 soon.


What I have looked at some far is two (2) unit as power distribution centers: (1) LanParte V-mount Battery Pinch HDMI Splitter Power Supply Plate V-Lock DSLR Rig or  (2) LanParte V-mount Battery W/ HDMI Splitter Power Supply Plate V-Lock DSLR Rig LM.  However, I'm not sure what is best so far.



Also Looking at a Lanparte Sony V mount battery: Lanparte 14.8v 150Wh Li-ion Battery V Mount,D-Tap & LCD for DSLR Photography, but then I thought if there is an option that would allow me to swap between  a DSLR or a Sony Z7U?


Any guidance would be appreciated! I am so without a clue at this point on what I should be looking at as  power options. I'm unable to post examples, so sorry I can show you what  the items are. I don't want to post links since I just got here.


Thanks to everyone in advance
