I got a little bit of a problem here. I went out and I bought my-self an Swit 2000 Light for my Sony A1E camcorder. The problem is, is that the Swit 2000 Light can only be powered by a D-tap connector (which my sony a1e does not have). The other way I can work around this is by buying the Swit S8u62 battery which does have a D-tap connector port built into it (that will cost £130.00), but then I will have to buy an additional charger to charge that battery which will cost even hundreds more.
So i'm stuck as I don't know if I should now sell my Swit 2000 or keep hold of it for when I upgrade to another camera. But even then I still don't know about D-tap as I see that Pags is on a different voltage etc... than that of Swits, so can I use a Swit via a dtap in a Pag battery etc....
Please can any one explain to me how D-tap does work within this industry ? And what I would have to do in order to finally get power to my Swit 2000 Light ?
