IndiPRO Tools VMBP4K Reviews

Failed after 2 years

By Barry

It was working great then all of a sudden failed to power my black magic 6K pro. As mentioned by other reviewer's this is unacceptable for the price point

Quality is good. The built in power cord fit my 6k pro. Being able to swing the battery down means I can use the camera monitor and save weight on my rig

It worked well, for less than a year.

When I first received it, I loved it. I was finally becoming content in the whole rigging out a mirrorless camera game. It didn't last a year, though, which is unacceptable given the price point. The ergonomics are great. The articulation and cable are decent. Internally, the cable is siliconed in place, so stress on the cable is minimal. The rod clamps are not great, but they can be ridgid, at least. The V-Mount lock is of a below average quality. The gold pins are of a poor quality. Now, that the V-Mount lock has worn down from a few hundred lock in's/out's, it can't hold a battery tight enough for the poor gold pins to maintain a connection.

Cheap, but works

The hardware is pretty low-end and feels cheap, but it does the job. Plug is secure and the electronics work.

we have several

we bought several of these. good enough for the price, but be careful with the parts, will break if you're not careful.

Decent v-mount with 1 massive flaw

By Jonathan
Rated 3 out of 5
Date: 2021-05-03

It's a decent battery plate, and powers the camera no problem. There is one massive problem, and that is that I can plug in the d-tap both ways. Plugging in a dtap from the other side, and not seeing it has resulted in me frying a monitor's power input and a nucleus nano motor. Rod screws are hard to tighten properly, so the battery sags a bit if you have a big battery.

Died in a month

Cable failed after a month of shooting. I opened it up and the failure was inside the battery plate itself (not at the blackmagic connector side).

Good for a while

By Jason

This plate worked for a while but the hardware is really sketchy. After only a few months, the cable came loose and began shorting out batteries. Good form factor and ease of use but even the mount release button became loose and didn't secure batteries well.

Will this work with a GH5 setup and a dummy battery for the Ninja V monitor?
Asked by: Daniel
It'll work, however, you won't be able to connect the power cord into the GH5, as it's meant for the BMPCC4K. It'll work by mounting the battery on the plate, which will, in turn, give power to the dtap port. I would recommend not buying this plate for the GH5, however.
