I might have f-ed up. I’m a producer for an in-house agency and I had the sweet idea of consolidating all battery types and to power everything off of D-tap (p-tap) using v-mount batteries. Here’s what I bought:
Vmount plate for camera: Here
Follow focus: Here
Wireless transmitter: Here
So I have all of the appropriate d-tap cables and whatnot, and my plan was to power all of this off of one v-mount battery, but it’s looking like I might not be able to do it. When I plugged in everything, I got a spark somewhere on the cage of my c300, but nothing fried. What am I missing? How do large productions run tons of accessories off of one battery? I’m hoping I didn’t get in over my head with this. Any advice or critique is welcome.
