    Hi,
    Im thinking of buying an Ursa Mini sometime and might try getting a standard v-mount battery plate (9) and soldering the molex adapter myself instead of buying the plate with ursa molex already attached (78).
    In the ursa manual it says: "You can use the supplied adapter cable and connector, which is also available at your local support office". However I've watched unboxing videos and never seen the person show this connector, also on the retailer websites they dont say it's "in the box".
    So my Question: Has anyone who owns an ursa received this molex connector and cable in the box? And if so did you use it to make your own plate successfully?

    I'd be really grateful if anyone could share this info thanks for reading.

    Also be prepared to invest in a tonne of mini screwdriver sets before you get that damn super tiny screw plate off the back...

    I got one - bought from bhphoto last month - but im not im not sure if it came with the ursa or the battery back plate: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produc...ery_plate.html

    Go on the bhphoto live chat and ask them.
    Only needed one torx6 to open the back. It also came with one wise fast card and a lexar card reader.
