The Core SWX Sharkfin Battery Plate for V-Mount Camera allows you to power any camera with a V-mount battery plate, like the RED V-RAPTOR cinema camera, using two V-mount batteries. Core SWX Sharkfin Battery Plate for V-Mount Camera sharkfin design permits the simultaneous use of two batteries, with one being easily removable while the other stays connected, avoiding camera downtime. Additionally, the plate includes two D-Tap output ports to power accessories. This versatile and practical battery plate is a great option for continuous power supply in your film productions.

The batteries can power the camera by discharging at the same time, or you can choose to discharge them one at a time and use the hot swap function. Since the ports on some cameras such as the RED V-RAPTOR are on the back, to prevent blocking them, the plate can slide away from the back of the camera to make room for your cables to plug in. Each D-Tap and power output to the camera is unregulated 11 to 17 VDC.


The adapter is compatible with any camera with a V-mount battery mount, such as the RED RAPTOR cinema camera.
