    Awesome. An extra $1k just to be able to power your camera.

    No, any gold mount should work, but the new anto Bauer batteries ride fairly low ... So some peoples camera mounting to rig options might not work. This is the nice thing about the new red xl mount, is the battery sits nicely behind the camera.

    Thanks
    Seems to be pretty similar to Epic Dragon in terms of power draw and up time. REDVOLT XL batteries are getting an hour and half-ish on time.

    No more module adapters on Weapon. This attaches straight to the brain or after any of the Expander Modules.

    Weapon only.

    I know how Jared feels about p-taps but sometimes you rent accessories that only come with a p-tap cable and there's no time to get a cable made, not to mention the expense. Options are good right?
    Likely not going to happen. Especially on a series of bodies like this.

    Do we know how the power draw on Weapon compares to the Epic?

    Thank you Phil.

    Although I never got 1 and 1/2 hour run time on a Red Volt XL. Likely around 1 hour but that was an Epix MX. I have not powered my Dragon with the RedVolt XL

    I've gotten 80 minutes out of one and a bit more on Dragon. Weapon seems to be the same or better slightly.

    I don't even know if RED has attempted power tuning on Weapon yet. Still the early days. They might be able to squeak out a bit more out of them.

    Any Photos of V-Mount battery on the body?

    With the shorter body and LCD mounting point seems like V-mounts will either obscure the LCD or block the rear lower vents.

    How do the battery plates attach, screws or quick release?

    How does the battery slide onto the plate with the new weapon top handle there?

    I saw it at NAB with the AB Mount, and it did not look like a v mount would fit in there.

    Any pictures of the full set up?

    I also had that concern a bit when using the new Top Handle. There are low profile V-Mounts out there. And I have a feeling RED/ET will come up with another Top Handle style thing at some point.

    However, I think if you add something like the REDVOLT Expander and the ET V-Mount plate you'll be clear of the handle.
