Hi Sebastian here,
hope you all are safe during these hard times.
I wanted to start a new thread about what is your most preferred way of powering your accessories.
I have been thinking to get rid of Power Tap (Dtap / Ptap) cables & splitters because they feel flimsy/bulky to me and replacing everything with 2 pin Lemo connectors and splitters seemed like a good option.
What are your thoughts?
What are your favorite / most reliable manufacturer?
Let me know
Like Chris said, I’m usually at the mercy of whatever the rental house sticks me with... After being fed up with that for enough years, I bought a ScatterBox2 by Carlos Acosta - it’s served me very well over the years and saved me from a lot of power issues and headaches. It’s gotten to a point now where most cameras have a nice power distro solution (my favourites being the Wooden Camera Venice system and the Bebob Alexa Mini RAB back) but I still pull it out all the time if the rental house hands me a terrible plate, or I’m stuck on a RED. Carlos is working on a Version 3 currently that I’m really excited for - I have no idea as to the features but I’m just hoping it’s a bit slimmer, with the potential for a 10-20wH battery backup.
