The Samsung SSDs I am using are rated at 0.15w. Most spinning drives are below 10w once started. 10k and 15krpm drives are in the 10-15w range.

Using the PIX-240, F3, and SmallHD DP6 together on a 96wh battery I get 2.5-3hrs of runtime. That suggests a total consumption of everything in the 30-40wh range.

Re: Sony F3 with hyperdeck shuttle questions

Ah yes I was thinking spin-up drives. I will correct my post before someone takes it as gospel.

Most SSD's are .5w when not doing anything but once in operation they can range from 2w up to 6w depending on the manufacturer and specific model. Still rather negligible as you suggest.

Re: Sony F3 with hyperdeck shuttle questions

Great and if you don't have a v-mount plate you can also buy one from him as well which has a d-tap port on the side. But you would need to install/solder your own connector on the end to power your camera and also make note of the proper polarity.

Sorry I should have put that link up earlier as well.

If you buy the hyperdeck shuttle plate for $100 and a rail mount from berkley it will let you mount the plate vertically on your rails and then you can mount your deck on one side and the power plate on the other.

Add a d-tap splitter and you've got enough room to grow and power the world with.

Rudy, be sure to check the polarity of the cable you get first before using it, you may need to flip the polarity around in the d-tap connector.

Check first!

Re: Sony F3 with hyperdeck shuttle questions

Hi Rudy, sounds great that you received the d-tap to 2.5mm jack power cable. Sorry I will repeat it again, but please make sure you check the polarity of that power cable first before using.

For example, on my v-mount plate I actually had to put the d-tap cable on "backwards" in order to get the proper polarity out of the 2.5mm jack. I plan to open up the d-tap plastic housing and reverse the polarity when I get a moment.

Re: Sony F3 with hyperdeck shuttle questions

The seller of the d-tap to 2.5mm power cable said he can configure the wires any way you want, or you can open the connector and flip things around if needed.

Sure post some pics once you get it all together!

Re: Sony F3 with hyperdeck shuttle questions

Dennis I got a question I connected the Hyperdeck Shuttle 2 on my Sony F3 SDI out because that was the only way I got it to trigger the recorder is this normal ? Are you able to get the recorder to work on either SDI A or B ?

Re: Sony F3 with hyperdeck shuttle questions

Yes I managed to get the recorder to work (see video and trigger) through both the monitor SDI out port, as well as the SDI-A out.

I do recall having some issues at first with SDI-A, mainly you have to go in the menu of the F3 and play around with the output options.

As for triggering I'd have to check what mode I used that worked for me.

CAUTION: one silly thing that took me hours to figure out is that when you use the USB cable and HyperDeck utility to change the settings of the deck, when you first power that deck up again make sure you press the STOP button on it. The default after powering up, or running an update is in PLAYBACK mode so it will NEVER trigger in that mode.

This wasn't even documented anywhere but it became a little more obvious once I hooked up a monitor to the HDMI output port on the deck for testing.

Once you get through the pain points, its smooth sailing from there.

Re: Sony F3 with hyperdeck shuttle questions

Dennis the power cable worked just fine how I received it so lucky me...for the SDI A or the SDI B no luck but it works perfect on the SDI OUT so I will try to figure it out on the SDI A.
Picture is coming soon
