I finally ordered the battery system today. Took a while. I went for the Anton Bauer QR-XLH mount (new type) with a Panasonic Dionic 90 kit (2x Dionic 90 + Titan Twin 60 charger -- was $49 cheaper than the XL-H1 kit and gives me exactly the same parts). I also ordered the QR-HOTSWAPGM (http://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/cont...arch&Q=*&bhs=t) hot swap mount. Not because I think I really need the hot swap capability. But it will add extra weight to the back of my Canon XL-H1 which will improve stability/balance of the whole package.

I just received everything. What a difference. Those Anton Bauer batteries are really intelligent. Put them on the charger and they start talking with each other. Wonderful. And boy am I happy. One Anton Bauer Dionic 90 on the back improves the overall balance a lot. But with the hot swap mount and two batteries on the back, the balance is near perfect. It slightly pulls to the right but not so much that it makes it uncomfortable. So if you want to achieve harmony with the XL-H1 on your shoulders, get two Dionic 90 batteries, a QR-XLH mount and a Anton Bauer Hot Swap mount and you get what you want. And besides that, it powers the whole system for a week!

I will post some pictures later on.
