    How do the battery plates attach, screws or quick release?
    Doesn't look like it goes below the rear and blocks the vents.

    The AB and V-Mount Modules attach to the brain or other modules with bolts.

    Not compatible as long as red does not make some sort of "bridge module". different camera backs...

    Why can't this come with the Weapon upgrade package? So much more useful then the redvolts XL module.

    No offence Phil but I can't see why P-Tap wouldn't be incorporated in this or any level of body. Lemo is better, we all know this, but options are even better still.
    I travel a lot for shoots and rent many accessories locally. Sometimes last minute; client requests some kind of specialty shot and we need to quickly source some specialty gear. I don't know if they'll come with a 2-pin (or 4-pin, sigh) Lemo cable, sometimes they do and then I'll use that, but they almost always have a P-tap cable. (great example is the power cable for the Cabrio 19-90 Servo unit... I've never seen one that wasn't P-tap)
    A big part of my job is being prepared for anything. Dual P-taps and a DC in will help me do that.

    With this my options are:
    A) Buy Lemo cables for accessories that I A) don't even own B) don't know if I'll ever even need to use C) Have never even heard about
    or
    B) Use that fancy Lemo to P-tap splitter from Off Hollywood, which kinda negates the gains in the new Weapon design (less cable clutter). Not even sure how to mount that to Weapon right now...

    Why not just incorporate P-taps into the battery plate? Make it a one-off just for me if you have to, I'll pay for it. (I'm certain more people would want this too)
    Whatever happened to "the customer is always right"?

    So a v-mount battery would then stick up pretty high compared to the body and be pretty hard to use the LCD in its fixed cable free position.

    Probably have to count on using the lemo adapters modules to re-position the LCD if you want to use v-mount batteries on board?

    No P tap might be the decider for me, that makes no sense, I have always powered TV logic, WFF, teradek, almost everything through it.
    Hopefully a few other people quickly make V mount backs that have a ptap on it.

    Thanks Phil, my thoughts as well. For me, it's pretty important to have a V-Mount go straight onto the back of the camera without adding extra modules.

    I also had this issue with 2 pin lemo only and travelling and needing to put P-Tap power out. A solution I found was a splitter cable made by Letus.
    It's been quite useful, and now travels with me.

    Curious, If you decide to go this route instead of say a RV XL module, can you reassign that portion of your order to something of similar value?

    I wish, I will ask tomorrow mourning ;) all my batteries are gold mount nowadays, so would be nice (I have had bad luck on all 4 of my volt batteries and two chargers). Btw having ET and guys like that in the red booth is great, and is so nice that abelcine is involved since I can buy my et stuff through abelcine. It's a whole new extended family.
