Pietro Vignali, CEO of BLUESHAPE, said “We are proud to introduce our V-plate adapter MVPHF for the Phantom Flex4K. This precision product has been specifically designed to mount sturdily to the camera rear and to perfectly withstand the high power demands of this leading technology camera, providing an interface to our range of high power batteries. Our V-plate has been thoroughly tested and approved by Vision Research themselves during trials conducted earlier this year. The plate is easily fitted to the camera by just 4 screws.”

"The high current demand of this camera requires batteries capable of operating continuously at over 130W. Only batteries like our GRANITE HD series are capable of offering such a performance over their lifetime. The higher drain of our GRANITE batteries such as BV270HD, BV190HD and BV100HD are perfectly matched mechanically and electrically for this camera and this battery adapter."

Toni Lucatorto, Cinema Product Manager at Vision Research said "For the Phantom Flex4K to achieve its exceptional performance it requires a constant supply of high current from the connected battery, so the performance of the battery adapter plate and battery will be need to be exceptional too. During the testing that we carried out other VPlates failed due to arcing caused by the high current discharge with resulting damage to the battery contacts. BLUESHAPE has designed and manufactured a battery plate to accommodate these demands and the result is extremely high quality and something we can all be proud of. I am excited about this new BLUESHAPE adapter and recommend it in combination with their high performance batteries for our new Phantom Flex4k camera."
