Can I run a Bartech and an M type motor from the AB 12v power source on a dsr450 (same as 570). I know there is a problem running it off onboard lithium power an sr3 but an sr3 uses more power when its turning over.

Who can sell me an AB to 4pinxlr cable in a hurry ? and not charge me 200 dollars

thanks

You mean the AB 2 pin power tap on/near the camera handle, the one used to power the onboard light? Should be fine using that, I've run a BFD and a video transmitter off one in the past. Just avoid the 4-pin Hirose at the back of the camera like the plague, don't power anything off that! Blows the fuse easily.

If you need the AB- XLR 4-pin cable take a look here or if you don't fancy spending, I have one you can borrow, I'll post it down to you...

Cheers Fred, I appreciate the importance of getting properly made cables from the likes as yourself because they simply dont go wrong.

Anyhow, the conclusion, I managed to run the M-motor and Bartech (and PRO35 from the lens power) off the AB out (top of camera) on the DSR450

The thing is a bleeding computer! I crashed it! no joke... it crashed! had to cold restart it by taking the batteries off!!!!!!

Anyhow, Bartech etc worked fine when running the camera from Nicads, with just one (extendable IDX) it would blow the instantly reseting IDX battery fuse when tuning the motor, With 2 IDX s on the camera it only occasionally blew one of the battery fuses.

I was Dp ing/ steadicaming hence I wanted everything supersimple for the day. Promo for Juliet Lewis of all people.
