    I remember there being a thread about this but can't find it anymore and the specs I found online didn't include power draw. Can somebody tell me how much power the Red Dragon (DSMC 1) roughly draws?

    Thanks!

    DSMC1 is about 60Wh. On a fairly common 150Wh battery you would get around 2.5 hours of runtime. The camera typically will shutdown when the battery gets to about <= 5% power on the brick, so more like 2.3-2.5 hours depending on the battery itself and other factors like even the weather or accessories connected.

    Bare in mind a 5" touch is another ~5wh and an EVF (OLED or LCOS) I seem to recall being ~7.5wh (more than the 5" Touch, which I found surprising).

    WOW didn't know the EVF was so power hungry, are you sure? even the new DSMC2 OLED version?

    Not sure about the new DSMC2 one. I’m going off of memory from the Bomb OLED launch thread, which was years ago (I asked how much less power it used than the monitor, and the response I got was that both the OLED and LCOS draw a fair chunk more.)

    ...actually shouldn’t the exact amounts be in the OpsGuides/manual?.. gonna double check.
