The DSMC2™ V-Lock Battery Module is a low profile cable-free module that enables you to power your DSMC2 BRAIN and camera accessories using RED BRICK and third-party batteries. The V-Lock and protected release button ensure ongoing power even during mobile shoots.


This DSMC2 battery module also offers a P-Tap connector for powering peripherals and accessories. Located on the top of the module, the P-Tap connector supports a maximum current of 3.0 Amps.


Manufactured from robust aluminum alloy, this DSMC2 battery module offers a blend of utility and power support in a lightweight and space-saving form factor. The DSMC2 V-Lock Battery Module is an ideal power solution for use with most DSMC2 expanders. Alternatively, connect the DSMC2 V-Lock Battery Module directly to your DSMC2 BRAIN for a low-profile, battery-only power configuration.

Great one Jarred!
I can't wait to be able to move to DSMC2. All the stuff that I don't love about the Epic are getting better and better in the new system.

Still on the fence if I should get this plus the standard expander, or a V-lock expander

IMO this plus standard expander to keep your modular options open.

Now that's a sexy price. And also a notable difference between the RED and Element Technica version for sure is ET's two 2-pin AUX LEMO Power outs.

For super, super small setups you could use this DSMC2 V-Lock plate and the new REDVOLT-V straight on the camera brain.

Total weight on DSMC2 bodies should be really lightweight. Likely sub 6lbs.

Love it...

Is there a DSMC2 3 Point mount coming?

any chance of adding AUX power out like the 2x 0b 2Pin Lemo

or if you need a good FIZ system you can use an RTmotion latitude 'sidekick' module connected via P-Tap... gives you 3x lemo out... and more.

oh man.. I was JUST about to order the backpack from Woodencamera..This is very cool, the price is nice. ONE more P-tap would make it superior to anything else out there. Are there any more pictures of this mounted on a standard Base I/O?

Does anyone make a wall power cable with an interface that will connect to the V-mount battery module and provide power to the camera? I know, I know... get a $1900 V-Lock I/O base expander module.

that is what i was going to mention, and the problem i had with WC version.
why arent these made with a way to plug into AC as well, let's say your batteries died, you need to hot swap. there is no way to go with only this module, or you will need to power down every time you switch a battery.

You know this ships this fall, not now? Plus, I'm not sure if this puts the batteries lower as they do on the WC mount?

Matthew Quinn

yah i can prob wait for fall... also yah i want to see pictures.. In a perfect world i would prefer to have red taged on the back of my camera but still thinking about it. I have a cart going for WC with the new handles and some other stuffs

You guys at RED have been awesome but when you put the power of a whole industry into the mix, it gets pretty incredible. Kudos to all you do at RED. (But, I'll admit, it's going to take me a few months to figure out exactly how to manage my migration to the DSMC2 world.)

something I'm experiencing at the moment. just about at the end of the migration tho. One last tech check and should be good to go.

Now we're suddenly spoiled for choice. Omod has some modules that integrate a Latitude controller (1 or 3 axes), and the RTMotion motors are winners -- they're not merely quiet, they're so quiet that the make the Red Rock Micro motors seem like noisemakers by comparison.

Hm... it's a tough choice now between the Latitude Sidekick version or the Omod all-in-one dealie. :)

Since it's not shipping yet, maybe, just maybe there is a way to make 2 d-tap out ports instead of one?

This will make it the perfect battery module

No batteries are being offered in this thread my friend. Only Battery modules which you atttach your batteries too. Keep up ;-)

I'm wondering if this could be modified to mount the battery in low mode like the Wooden Camera mount? I.e making the battery attach lower so that we could use the top handle. I'm having a hard time deciding on getting this since it seems to unable me to use my Red bricks just like with the V-lock Expander.

Have any of these started shipping? Thinking of going to way of Wooden Camera/Blueshape or Element Technica plate. Before I do would be nice to know if it is just around the corner or months away.

The bricks work only half well with the Vlock module. It has a limited Dtap port and as the Bricks have no power out you are kind of short in power if you ask me. Better get some batteries with more power outs.

I'm planning on putting the Wooden Camera rotating top handle on my Scarlet-W when it arrives. In addition to being rotatable, it also has a user friendly quick release, which ought to make transporting the camera mostly shoot ready pretty easy.

I'm using the top handle while filming so I can't use it rotated. And I have the old top handle from my Epic which I can use, but the camera becomes too high and there's no room for a touchscreen attached to the camera. I hate this thing with the batteries. I've been waiting six months for the WC mount and now I'm seeing users having a lot of issues. I'm beginning to feel that I'm forced to buy totally new batteries because of this and it's so frustrating the problem even exists. Why couldn't Red just design this mount to work like the WC mount, with a lower mounting option so that Red bricks align with the camera body. I don't want to deal with WC anymore but I have no other choice if I'm gonna be able to use the top handle provided with my Weapon. Buying three new batteries might A) not fit the case I have for the camera and B) will cost me much more than just a mount that works.

Getting really tired over all of this.
