I'll have 4 redvolts and will certainly use these when weight is absolutely critical ,but I'd like to find an alternative solution where the battery powers the camera longer than 20-25 minutes while remaining relatively small/light-weight.
I've ordered the x back plate but can't decide if I should go with Anton Bauer or V-Mount.
I'm a bit gun-shy of V-mounts as I've found they're much more apt to lose connection (often at critical moments). That said I know all V-mounts and V-mount plates are different and am open to try them out again if I can find a rock solid solution.
Anton Bauers on the other hand have never lost connection and seem to mount to AB plates very securely. I'm considering the AB Dionic HC's (relatively small) but have heard they only power the Epic for approximately 30-40 minutes (which isn't to bad but not great either).
It'd be great to know what other options there are ... Any advice or insight would be greatly appreciated.
My goal is to get the smallest/lightest battery with the longest life while powering Epic (standard config). I will most likely be using x mount ...
