  1. Hi Folks, I recently just bought a Zephyr and I'm looking into getting the upgrades and accessories. I'd appreciate any tips or links of where best to buy. Also any suggestions for other good to have items is appreciated as well. Thanks. Things I'm looking for: - Yoke upgrade - 2nd Battery Upgrade 12v/24v - Extended post (I'm short) - Various 3-pin Lemo Power Cables or adapters - Camera Specific Power Cables - Additional Weights - Any other suggestions?

  3. Hi yall When we flip the CineLive into 24v for using ARRI and other cameras, do the upper electronic switch out to 24v exclusively? I am having cables made for a Chrosziel MagNum receiver and am wondering if I need a 12v and 24v cable, or 12v only. The receiver does not care whether it receives 12v or 24v, it will push voltage independent of whats coming in. Try as I might, I have a difficult time understanding electricity. brett.
  4. Hi all, I own a Shadow sled and I'm mostly flying Alexas in 24v mode. Instead of switching two 12v batteries in series I have had a 24v battery plate made to Chris' example. http://www.steadicamforum.com/index.php?showtopic=14350 It allows me to attach the 24v batteries that come with the camera on the bottom of my sled and supplies the 24v system. A neat feature of the shadow sled is that it has a DC/DC step-down converter built in to convert the 24v to 14.4v (or something in that neighborhood) to supply the 12v system with power while simultaneously powering the camera with 24v. This is where my problem comes in. I'd like to use one of my 12v batteries on battery plate nr.1 to supply all the 12v systems and the 24v battery on the bottom battery plate nr.3 to solely power the camera and nothing else since the Alexa is hungry enough. What happens now is that as soon the 24v batt is attached it powers the DC/DC converter, even when I have my sled switched off. At some point when the voltage of my 12v batt drops low enough I assume the DC/DC system starts charging my 12v batt. I figure the best solution to meet my wishes is to switch the DC/DC converter off so it doesn't help power the 12v systems and more importantly doesn't start charging my 12v battery. Does anyone know if there is an elegant way to achieve this? I opened up the battery plate of the shadow sled to check out if it could be a simple solution but it looks quite complicated :-) Your insights are much appreciated. Cheers, Jelle.
  5. Hey guys, I have a custom top and bottom stage on my rig (wired by Terry West), and am wondering if you guys could help me figure out an electrical issue. Before you dismiss me and tell me to take it to Terry, I've been working on this with him also, but figure I'll cast a wide net for answers. The issue is that my camera power has a tendency to drop out, and it seems pretty much at random. Its both the 12v and 24v power. Whats strange is that the power doesnt drop all the way out- it just drops from 14.4v or 24v to about 9v, and will shift back and forth from one to the other, but never anywhere in between or lower. Sometimes this shift is very quick maybe just a few seconds, and sometimes it will be minutes. Obviously this shuts down any camera that is being powered by the rig, so I have resorted to powering things on camera for quite some time while trying to figure this out. I went through and spread the pins on the post (XCS post) to make sure each connection was nice and solid in the post / bottom stage connections, but the problem is still persisting. I'm not really an electrical engineer, so before sending this in to Terry one more time I was going to open it up here and see if anyone has a good idea. Hit me with your best shot! I'm stumped. -TJ
  6. is there such a device where you can continue to keep your Rig powered when docked for an extended period of time, during lunch hour, coffee breaks, etc. so I could dock and plug my rig into a standard 12VDC power supply, and walk away for a bit without losing sync to my wireless transmitter, or not having to powering down the camera, or pull the battery out, etc. especially for single battery rigs... (i presume with the big rigs you can easily hot swap batteries since they use more than 1 battery.)
