Anton/Bauer Gold Mount for RED ONE camera
Posted 21 December 2007 - 10:27 AM
Anton/Bauer is manufacturing a Gold Mount to be used on the new RED ONE cameras, so there is no need to fret as you will be able to use your existing batteries if you purchase one of these cameras. We should have the Gold Mounts available by the time RED starts shipping their next batch of cameras (#101 and higher).
The Gold Mount is called a QR-RED and the list price of this mount is around $275.00. It is a Gold Mount bracket, with about 24 inches of cable, terminating to the 6p LEMO connector.
This camera does have a high current draw of approximately 55 watts, so we would recommend choosing a battery that will supply you with the desired run-times.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
I wish you all a fun-filled and safe holiday season!!!!!

Which of your batteries would you recommend as appropriate for this camera? Hytron 140? Would the Dionic 90 provide enough amperage for a short haul? I know the math is pretty simple but I also know the Dionics are not ideal for high current draw, so I'm wondering if this is over the line for them.
Also, how will the mount be provided by RED? Simple substitute for the existing V-mount, in other words set up on the same bracket?

I think when the RED cameras are ordered, their battery mount is an option. So, if you are planning on using Anton/Bauer batteries, you would not need their mount that goes onto the "battery cage". The QR-RED will just attach via 4 screws and then the cable would plug into the 6p LEMO.
A brand new Dionic 90 will give you almost 2 hours of run-time and a HyTRON 140 will give you almost 3 hours of run-time. The camera draws around 55 watts of power, so it is a power hog!
I hope it helps. Let me know if you have any more questions.
