    Bob,

    could it be that we're using a battery plate that is connected to the DC in port of the camera ?

    I just tested this again with a different brick - same result: camera shuts down when we remove the brick. But if I let the brick drain, the Redvolt then takes over and we can exchange the brick...

    Thx
    Allen

    It could be the battery plate then. What brand is it? What happens when using the the AC adapter and you remove it while running?

    Bob is right.. I have used a similar v-mount and side handle combo for years and it works seamlessly. As longs the Revolt is charged you can hot swap all you want.

    it's a R1 battery plate with a power adapter cable for the DC in port on the Epic. The plate itself works, shows power percentage in Settings > Power.

    If I pull the power plug of the battery plate it also shuts off the camera - it does not switch to the Redvolt. Only letting the brick fully drain does that. Weird.
