Yes you will. I would suggest using 9v batteries or getting a voltage regulator that will regulate the voltage down to what it needs to be.

surely a cinematographer/steadicam op such as yourself knows that a little lisagav on the contacts will rectify over-voltage issues.

Ron, I'm starting to think you're on the lisagav payroll.(guess that's one way to pay for those trips to the gas station with the hummer.)
