The battery at the lower rear provides the 12v for the monitor. I believe that it can be used for camera power with the correct adaptor also.

Yes CP.

The rig gets it's power form it's battery. Runs the monitor as CP said, and also runs up the the stage where there is a 12V lemo socket.
- If you are using a standard profesional camera (like your SDX900) then this 12output can be used for the camera.

However smaller DV cameras, like the PD150, XL1, etc.. use a 7.2v battery. It is possibly to get an adapter to run from teh 12v from teh rig, but normally it's just easier to run the camera of it's own battery. Especially as the cameras are light enough that a little extra wight up there isn't a bad thing. :-)
