I have a battery powered R8 camera. Obviously, the light meter uses a separate battery so there is no concern there about damaging it. The maximum speed that this camera is capable of is 24 Fps. I am interested in getting twice that for a slow motion speed and I was thinking of increasing the voltage to 12 Volts instead of the usual 6 Volts. My question is: Is this safe for the camera both electronically and mechanically and if so, will it work?

No this isn't safe! :o :o :o By doubling the Voltage you will be doubling the AMPERAGE -- which would burn out the circuits. :wacko:
