    I'd like to power my C300mkII with the MoVI, it would save some on weight.
    I can't find a suitable cable in the Freefly shop.
    Also, the Canon has a 16.7v input, the MoVI a 14v output, as far as I can tell. There is a second CAM port, but I don't know how much that delivers.

    So, the questions are; Can I power the C300 through the MoVI, and if so, what cable do I use.

    Many thanks...

    Any issues or useful "things I wish I'd known" about using the MoVi Pro with your C300 mk II? I have both the camera and the MoVi pro in transit and want to minimize my delay/learning curve in getting up and running.

    The Mark 2 flys pretty well. The only stupid thing is the eyepiece doesn’t come off so it’s a wiggle game getting the camera on the Movi sort of moving the top lock off to one side then bring it back in once the camera is past the lock. You’ll know what I mean when you do it. Also the eyepiece doesn’t allow the camera to be back to far because it hits the back of the gimbal. So don’t plan on to much front weight with out adding countr weight. Kinda dumb on canons part since the C300mk1 eyepiece did come off.
