I’ve been looking for a good battery solution for the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera (BMPCC) as having around 30 minutes battery life with the internal batteries is a little limiting at times. I found fairly expensive solutions on the market, and some cheap alternatives from countries outside the UK but was put off by having to pay import duties (I’m cheap!). Eventually I found this battery plate on Amazon UK for £17 and decided to give it a try as I own several copy Sony NP- F970 batteries used for powering LED video lights. The plate comes with a mounting bracket and 2 cables. One cable fits the BMPCC 12v socket. After a week of use I have found some positives and negatives.
