Cam doesn´t recognize my Anton Bauer batteries correctly

Hello,

I have a small problem concerning my batteries. I´m using Anton Bauer batteries (Hytron 120´s and a Dionic 160) and my camera doesn´t really recognize the batteries. With my old DSR DVCAM the battery corresponded with the camera and I could actually see roughly how much battery was left. Now I get a "MAX" on the up-right corner and that was about it. When the battery´s getting empty I don´t get a proper warning whatsoever. I tried to fix that in the menu and selected "OTHER", as I couldn´t find a reference to Anton Bauer. On the DSR I could actually select Anton Bauer. Is there a similar setting on the 350 or what can I do else?

Thanks so much,
Emanuel

Had the same issue with my Swit's. Went into the menu and tweaked the battery settings a little. You may find it helps to raise the warning voltages a bit, then you should get some warning before they go flat. Also raising the Batt End voltage a little will stop the camera from just cutting out when the battery goes flat.

Thanks Alister,

will definitely try that out. Just thought that there could be some sort of hidden menu or something:-) But I´ll do what you suggested.

Emanuel, I am running Anton Bauer and you can have a choice of showing voltage, or percent remaining (which starts out saying MAX). I'm not having any problem whatsoever but I do agree with Alister about raising the battery end voltage so that the camera can do a clean power down before the battery dies.
