    To keep the overall weight of the gimbal/camera package down so you don't have to support it with your arms, you could get pretty much any "brick" battery(gold mount/v-mount) that has a power tap...

    Yep. There is a reason that pretty much every single camera shooting live, broadcast sports, from the "handhelds" up to the bodies with 100x+ box lenses are sitting on Vinten heads. Plus most of...

    For $2K, I’d be hitting eBay and getting a Vinten Vision 100. And it’ll probably come with a set of stix.

    Yep, Zaxcom has actually been around longer than Sound Devices. They started in 1996 and SD in '98.

    I was surprised that the 552 wasn't dropped right after the 6 series came out. Much less still...

    I can remember shooting a handful of super short Lego animations in the 80's when I was a kid with a consumer camcorder that had stop-motion recording capability. I don't think...

    Check out Rand's post on the main Komodo thread, about the micro A/B Gold Mounts and bracket. That may keep it small and light enough to work. Although I'm not sure how long you'd want to carry it...

    Was the camera powered ON while you were swapping lenses? Is the adapter dumb(mechanical only) or have pins to pass power/comms? Although rare, there were some reports years ago, of people shorting...

    With the PIN assignments being known and available, I'm sure any competent cable maker, like Trew/Remote Audio or Markertek, can make a custom cable for you in any configuration.
