    Hi,

    in the last few months a strange thing happened to us on different cameras:
    On our Monstro and on our Raven, the EF Mount burnt/smoked.

    In the following the Mounts also destroyed the EF lenses.

    - Monstro: Sigma Art 85mm.
    - Raven: Canon 100mm Macro

    Raven: Firmware 7.0.0.
    Monstro: Firmware 7.0.1.

    It seems I have to pay for the repairs, but this sounds like a software problem.
    Shooting enviroment was indoor and outdoor.
    It wasnt hot. Around 20-27 degrees.

    Any help to avoid this in the future. Actually I'm now really scared to use EF lenses, but they work so good with the RTMotion Lattitude for our Gimbal and handheld work.



    Regards
    Weapon Carbon #1119, Epic-X #7926 BAM, Raven #220

    How are you powering the brain? Any chance of inconsistent power feed from the source?

    We were powering via the Element technica V-Mount Plate and the other time it was powered via the AC Power input on the Base i/o (i think it was over the battery belt clip)
