Wondering if anyone has flown Alexa 65 and had a plate that could still clip in to the back of the cam. Seems like the bottom of camera is different from regular Alexa's as well as the Studio. Couldn't get the precision plate to line up- lines up with "studio" screws but need a longer screw to clip into back. The spacer block connects with the back of cam in a bad way so that didn't seem to work either.

 

Thanks,

Mike

Currently on a production using the Alexa 65. Can confirm it uses 24V. The back Anton Bauer battery plate has a built in up-converter that converts a 12V on-board battery to supply 24V to the camera. According to an ARRI tech I spoke with, the camera can run as low as 22V and still function safely. 

So if you are looking to power the camera through your rig, ensure it can support 24V at up to 10 Amps. Currently Steadicam I work with just keeps the onboard battery on the back of the camera to power the camera. 

As for the bottom plate, the Steadicam op had a custom intermediate plate made that connects the front and back. His usual Steadicam plate then get bolted onto the intermediate plate.

FYI, the camera, with a Preston (MDR3), 2 motors, SmallHD 702 monitor, Cinetape, top handle, no eyepiece, onboard battery, Teradek transmitter, small prime lens, and LMB-5 comes in at about 56lbs.
