What does unregulated power outputs mean on this item and is there a risk they could short circuit my camera or connected accessories?
Asked by: Scott C.
The Sony FS7 can work safely with V mount and gold mount batteries which are nominally rated for 14.4VDC. Nominally in reality means the voltage varies from 14.4VDC. However, no worries on this plate for the voltage from the battery to the camera is regulated to a 11VDC to 17 VDC range and the camera self regulates to these same voltage numbers. Very commonly like here however, the D taps voltage is straight out whatever the battery is outputting with no regulation. If you use it on a light, there is no danger, the light will just dim and go out. If the device is complicated computer circuitry, I would not hook it up unless it had its own internal voltage regulation.
