  1. #1 Zhiyun Crane 3 + BMPCC 4k power solution 
    I'm trying to think of a solution to the battery problem when using my Bmpcc 4k and Zhiyun crane 3. I would prefer to attach a small battery to one of the mounting points on the Zhiyun. I ran into someone once who said he got a $30 12v battery off of Amazon that would power his BMPCC 4k for a few hours. I'm looking for something like that, or maybe a way to use NPF batteries or mount a Hypercore mini V-mount. Any ideas are greatly appreciated!

    It looks like the easiest solution would be to power the camera with an NPF battery plate. However information on such an item is still murky (a whole year latter), and while people mention it often they never provide a link to a reliable item. Very frustrating.

    Personally, I use this 12v powerbank Velcro strapped to the arm (with the focus knob). Run 12v power into the side port, and I get 4-5 hours (if not more) of filming/standby.

    What cable do you use to connect it to the bmpcc4k?

    To power Pocket4K from external 12-20V power banks you need DC cable with WEIPU SF610/S2 also named as WEIPU SF6 two pin
    Something like this:
