        Comments about Switronix Dual P-Tap V-Mount Plate for Blackmagic Cinema Camera:

        This is what you expect in a power plate.

        The two D-tap ports can be hard to get the connector in, but once you do you be confident they they will stay.

        I wish the attached power cable did not come out of the bottom, my rig actually uses the cheese plate hangs down off the back to the wire is constantly being pressed on the ground and leaves the camera slightly unstable, not to mention the strain it probably puts on the cord itself.

          Comments about Switronix Dual P-Tap V-Mount Plate for Blackmagic Cinema Camera:

          This is a great plate for V mount battery. Unfortunately the output ports are unregulated so you have to put something upstream of it to actually use it. It is very nice though to have two outputs for one battery out of a plate.

          It is however difficult to find a cheeseplate to attach this to. I ended up finding a shape rail plate to attach it to.

            Even though it is made of plastic, it feels very strong and durable.

            Used in combination with Wooden Camera's battery slide it does the job perfectly and fits my needs.

              Comments about Switronix Dual P-Tap V-Mount Plate for Blackmagic Cinema Camera:

              first, the good: 3 power connections. This is why I bought it. One was hard to use to connect the p-tap terminal but with some muscle you get there.

              The Bad: I didn't care the other reviews about the problem with the screw holes. Two cheese plates and no hole can fit with the 4 separations those guys decided. They where thinking in a cheese plate from mars. Also the construction design is to blame. The unit has two parts that separates everytime you hold it in your hand if you don't mantain the screw in place that was ment to use for the cheese plate connection. There is a piece of electric tape poorly covering a cable conection that is wide open to your eyes and you fear an electric shock.

              Comments about Switronix Dual P-Tap V-Mount Plate for Blackmagic Cinema Camera:

              I think Switronix is doing a good thing by offering products at lower than industry pricings. However, in this business, it still holds true: you get what you pay for.
              This plate works fine, and is like other v mount plates out there. it's plastic mostly, so that cuts down on weight, but does not boost durability. The holes are in the right places for mounting, however, Switronix has chosen to go with their own threading, which kind of defeats the whole purpose of modularity. I couldn't mount it on battery back plates I already have, simply because the screw threads don't match. So instead, I used velcro. Which in the long run, isn't so bad.
              Companies are starting to make battery back plates for Switronix products, so you can look that way.
