        Comments about Dolgin Engineering Power Plate Battery Adapter for Sony NP-F970:

        For over $100 a slim, lightweight piece of plastic with a cord hanging out. Battery is held in place by a little plastic tab that was not aligned on the product to hold the battery in place. I never even tried to use it with the camera - it was just too cheaply made and not worth the $$$. I returned it the day received and in their usual GREAT fashion, B&H refunded the purchase price.

        Comments about Dolgin Engineering Power Plate Battery Adapter for Sony NP-F970:

        This was the perfect accessory for my new Panasonic Lumix GH3. Previously, I used a camcorder that was powered by using the Sony NP-F970 (12hr battery). I was so happy that I was able to purchase this Power Plate and the DMW-DCC12 DC Coupler and be able to continue to use my 12 hr. batteries.
        While it does not come with any way to attach it to a tripod, camera cage, etc., it is still a very good accessory to have. By using some old parts from other shoulder rigs and some handy velcro, I was easily able to secure and mount. I am able to shoot with no worries about changing batteries.

          Comments about Dolgin Engineering Power Plate Battery Adapter for Sony NP-F970:

          PLEASE NOTE YOU MUST BY THE OFFICIAL PANASONIC DC COUPLER WITH THIS TO MAKE IT WORK!! They cost around $20.00

          This is a great addition to any Panasonic GH2 Kit as it allows you to run your GH2 of Sony NP Batteries which can be found almost anywhere on the internet and are incredibly cheap and can last for hours. I bought this for a concert where I had the Panasonic GH2 up near the roof of the arena and needed to run the camera for a long time. I also bought a Sandisk 64GB Extreme Pro card for high data rates for the shoot. Overall the Power Plate worked well and can run the camera for around 2-4 hours on a single NP-F970. I have a cheap chinese rip off battery so the run time is considerably less than the official Sony. This is a far more economical and cost effective solution than power the camera of the official Panasonic batteries. I would only recommend this solution for video work however and not for photography.

          The battery light blinks green when the battery is getting low. However I would like to have a red light instead to indicate this. But that isn't that much of an issue. The only other issue is mounting the thing. I threw this onto a Manfrotto 504HD head and there was plenty of room for this to sit on top with the GH2 also. If you were going handheld you would need to mount this sucker with some screws or gaffe tape as there is no mounting plate provided or even a 1/4 inch screw mount. So I'm just going to glue a cheap cold shoe mount to the base so it can dock easily wherever I put it.

          Overall it was a very good purchase and I couldn't of done the shoot without it.
