    Core SWX GP-S-FS7 reviews

    GP-S-FS7 V-Mount Adapter Plate for Sony FS7 Camera is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Flawed Design I chose this battery plate over others as it had a power input on the side BUT you can't attach a battery when you use this without causing a short circuit. This means that you have to power down the camera, remove the power plug, attach battery, power up again - the exact opposite to the way i'm use to working with broadcast cameras where you can remain rolling while you remove or plug in power. Have taped over the input to make sure there are no mishaps on location.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Need 1/4-20 mounting holes As I reported previously, excellent power plate. Core should just add a couple threaded 1/4-20 holes to attach accessories to the back of the camera. I drilled/tapped two on my adapter plate, very handy. See pics attached.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from So close... yet so far Solid build quality with a permanent DC cable to the camera, double p-taps, and three solid connection points to the camera body (the competitors only have one). Seems too good to be true... aaand it is. The plate is designed to attach like the Sony XDCA module. However, somewhere along the design phase, the engineers at Core mismeasured the FS7's connection points and the plate doesn't fit the way it should. When connected, there's a 1/2" gap between the camera and the top plate of the mount. That means your camera's XDCA electronic connections are exposed. And if you're OCD like me, well, it'll be all you can think about. A B&H tech was awesome enough to work through it with me. After some research, we found other complaints and considered it a design flaw. Core's technical support has not returned my email. Trying to decide whether to return it or have a friend grind and re-weld the brackets.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good, solid power adaptor Works great. Unlike what is described in an earlier review, the adapter automatically switch from battery to external power when a 12V power source is plugged into the 4-pin XLR. If the 4-pin XLR is disconnected, then the camera reverts automatically to battery power. There is no power interruption at all.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best choice for adding V-mounts to your Fs7 Very easy to install. Simply to use. Added two D-tap outlets for using accessories.
