    I am currently waiting for my BMCC MFT camera and redrock micro shoulder rig, but I am still searching for a good and affordable power distribution solution. I am getting the v-mount plate on the shoulder rig, but I'm tapped out on budget right now and their power distribution solution is nearly $700 when you add cables and mount (http://store.redrockmicro.com/Catalo...Universal.html)

    Can any recommend a different power distribution solution? I will have one d-tap power out of my v-mount plate and need a solution to then power the BMCC and SmallHD AC7-OLED.

    No solution from me jrmy, but that is a nice little power distributor. Would love more recommendations users have found.

    I found a cheaper block.

    You use this cable, or one like it.

    A little more expensive, but found Zacuto has one. At least it's from a US seller.

    My wife has a few of the Waleen cables. No issues. She has a few of the AB multi-taps as well and no issues there either. With a 190wh battery, she can power her rig (EVF/AC Monitor/Preston/Bolt) for about 5 hours.
