Hello All, 

 

I have been having an issue with my Steadicam Zephyr. I have recently upgraded my monitor to a Shogun Flame and sometimes when im in a RF intense area (near audio antenna's) my Shogun seems to drop the video signal and when i leave the area, the video comes back. I did modify the original Hirose cable that came with the Zephyr from the 4 pin xlr to a barrel plug so i could power through the same connection.. The SDI cable on that Hirose cable is pretty thin and i believe that it could be that cable that is being affected by interference. Im also suspecting that that maybe its the SDI cabling throughout the rig itself. if anyone has any information on what the issue could be i would greatly appreciate it!

 

Heres the cable that i'm talking about.

The Hirose is only rated for SD. Use the separate SDI line for HD.

Ahhh, That makes sense! I guess i was using that port because it was convenient and kept things tidy. Thanks Mr. Lazaro.

Yeah, I had the same issue, but getting a tidy rig can't beat getting a reliable image. Also, You need to connect the HD line on the front of the top stage.
