Hi Simon,

I believe I showed you how I mounted mine to my XLH1s. I've attached the pics below:


You can do a similar setup by mounting it on your XLH1's back bracket, and then maybe using industrial velcro to attach the battery pack to the backside of the bracket (the side facing the camera).

What was
your reply in the end Dan, it never made it to the forum in regards to the craddle idea?



Simon Wood December 18th, 2010 12:32 PM

Thanks for all the suggestions. I'm going to have to go with the lithium batteries, mounted on the backplate as this will work best for my scenario.

Does anyone know where to get a screw/knob needed to mount a nanoflash - preferably from the internet? I guess they are 1/4"-20?

Lastly, Dan, do you have any updates when they battery pouches will be ready (and do you have any idea of the price range)? Thanks!

why don't you try hawks-woods camera adaptor I have the BP-EX1+BP-EX3 and they work fine

I use these Hama Knobs from B&H. They area a bit too long to tigthen the unit to the bracket on the back of the XL-H1 so theyneed to be shortened a bit or else one needs to put a washer between the head and the mounting plate. They are also a bit expensive since they are sold only in a pack of 5, but they do look good and work well.

I need a power solution

The last word I heard is that our supplier will have the battery pouches to us before Christmas.

Hi Dan,

As Iʻm moving from the XLH1 to a Panasonic AF100, I need a power solution for my Nano. Is the above-=mentioned solution available? Or, is there a way that I can use my AB D-tap cable with a 4-cell battery... or is there some other inexpensive and cool way to add a battery to my Nano?

Dear Jeff,

If one want to use an Anton Bauer Gold Mount Battery, then nanoFlash.net will be selling a new device from Anton Bauer. They were the first to order these and they are expected in late January.

This mount puts out the 7.2 volt for the AF100 and 14.4 volts for other items.

Of course the nanoFlash can handle 6.5 volts to 19.5 volts.

Unless you want to use pro batteries, you could use the AF100 battery and a separate battery for the nanoFlash, either a two-cell, four-cell, or 8-cell battery.

The two-cell is nice and small, and lasts around 3 hours.

All times are GMT -6. The time now is 07:38 AM.
