Nanoflash accessory list?

Does a on-line Nanoflash accessory list exist? I've seen parts, but with the heavy traffic in this forum, it's hard to put everything together. The Nanoflash manual has a good list, but much more has been discussed on this forum.

This short list should qualify as a "Sticky" thread in this forum:

0) Included accessories - still 1) DC power supply 2) flash card reader? BH Photo doesn't list anything.

1) Short SDI & HDMI cables
I have some custom XLR cables from Trew Audio that don't include the rubber around the mesh sleeve. This makes for a flexible cable that doesn't transmit bumps as much to camera-mounted microphones

2) battery power
More details on ordering battery from Convergent

3) mounting brackets/plates

4) flash cards (Dan Keaton has done a good job in one thread)

This is what I know at the moment!

The nanoFlash comes with:

AC (mains) power supply
USB CompactFlash card reader
A short USB extension cable
CD with the manual.

Optional Accessories:

Hotshoe Ball Mount
HD-SDI cables
D-Tap (P-Tap) power cable
4-Pin XLR power cable
HDMI cable, Type C (mini) to Type A (large) 3 foot, 1 meter
HDMI cable, Type C (mini) to Type A (large) 6 foot, 2 meter
Swit Battery (great for use with the Sony EX1/EX3, requires D-Tap cable)
Remote Control
Remote Control with Timecode Input
TimeCode Input cable (no remote control)

And many other accessories!

In the pipeline:

V-Mount nanoFLASH Cage

Agree with this being a sticky.

Thanks, Paul. Any leads on the V-mount cage for the Nanoflash? My searches come up empty.

This is the last I heard from Dan:

Quote:
We recently determined that our IDX V-Mount Wedge, fits the IDX V-Mount on a camera, but it seems that the Piggyback V-Mount, for example on the Endura battery requires a different shape for the wedge.

Thus, we are not offering our IDX backplate at this time until we resolve this issue.
I'm sure this will be sort after Christmas.

1.5' SDI cable can be assembled with a 1.5' RCA cable and two RCA->BNC converters.
The shortest SDI cable I could find is 3' in length.

Dear Gints,

We can custom build a quality HD-SDI cable in any length you specify.

Typically our shortest length is 9", but on a special basis we will make shorter one.

We can also make very long cables.

Thanks, Dan.

Also, it would be good to update the Nanoflash manual that the D-tap->4 pine hirose cable is available from dolgin.net. If Convergent sells anything from its site, I was unable to find it.

Gints,

If there is any cable length you need, any adapter you need (Power-tap, 4 pin Hirose, 4 pin XLR, 12 pin Hirose for the remote connector to breakout box, 3 phase 440v power to 12v (etc), I can whip up one for you. High quality BNC's can be made up in a couple of minutes. I will test any of these cables on our many XDR's and Nanos.
