V-Mount vs Gold Mount?

Recommended Posts

Hello you incredible Operators, 


Newbie here looking to build my first rig, and I've noticed 2 main power sources V-Mount and Gold Mount. 


Can someone please help me understand the differences, which one is longer lasting? More durable? More universal? And any other distinctions that you think matter.


Thank you in advance

Seems like Gold mount is more common at rental houses here in LA. I believe V-Mount may be more common in Europe. Certainly Gold mount is more secure as I have had V-Mount batteries pop off the back of a camera when it is rested on someones lap or put down when doing hand-held or transferring onto a head. I can't speak to it on Steadicam as I have always used AB Gold Mounts
