Any tips would be greatly appreciated...
Thanks in advance.

Way too tired to list all the hellish traits this camera boasts, but just survived two days with it myself (thanks Erwin and Eric for the tips). Call me tomorrow and I'll go through it with you (unless of course your job is then!).

Feeding of your sled is not advisible, powerconsumption is about 70 watts in above config.
Very long with a zoomlens (6-27) and heavy, I had it always with 3 preston motors. A big windcatcher.
Low´mode handle works nice.
I had to work with stiff HD-SDI coax because the engineer wanted to see and tweek the real image, not the converted one. I hope for you they improved that.
Instead of downconverting I saw one time an operator who used a black and white video camera attached to the eyepiece.
In other words, I don´t like this big pig.
