Hello everyone,
I recently purchased the 12v Flyer to use primarily with the a-minima. I know very little about digital photography and HD in particular. Do the new prosumer HD cameras work with this rig, or should I have gone for the switchable 24v version? Any help in this matter would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks!

Hi,

Most consumer cameras run from something like 7.2V, so to run them from 12 you usually end up buying the in-car power supply.

Other than that, as long as the camera has an SD downconverted output for monitoring, I can't see why you'd have a problem so long as you stay within weight limits.

Thanks, Phil. Is the internal downconverter to SD fairly standard among these cameras?

Hi,

I don't know, but you'd have to check each individual case anyway.

I'm sure you could look it up online.
