Dear Sirs and Madams,
I am currently putting together my prospective package for a RED camera. My only issue is batteries. I have a massive and growing collection of NiCad and Lithium PAG s for my steadicam rig.
My first question is can I power the red straight off my rig? Is it voltage sensitive. On 12v 35mm jobs or video jobs with ringlights or gyros I often find myself using a few lithiums and a few Nicads but with Lithiums in the mix straight off the charger the voltage can go up to 18volts (instead of 12). I have seen a few steadicam setups on the net and having those extra batteries jutting out of the back seems silly as it spreads the weight out a little more than I would like and it adds weight to the top.
Can I power the Red from my Pags? How would I consolidate that with the Base Production Pack
Especially if I find myself using 2 Lithium Pags for the extra ampage for the body, remote follow focus and ringlight.
Is there a 4pin XLR 12v power cable available for the RED?
