First of all I want to thank all of you for this TOP NOTCH forum.
Very informative and helpful!
So, first post --> first question.
I bought a Beaulieu 4008 ZM II camera some time ago. I plan to shoot some footage outside in cold weather conditions and therefor I want to use an external battery pack.
I intent to safe money and not to buy a Battery Dummy, which is rather expensive, instead I will build my own out of an old Beaulieu battery.
Following the instructions on this website http://www.bondy.de/beaulieu/4008battery.html I managed to open the battery.
Next step is the installation of the 3-pin DIN socket but I need help with the configuration of the pins to the three camera contacts.
A proper pin-out / wire diagram would be very helpful.
I want to use an external Beaulieu battery container (which I don´t have yet) so the dummy should be compatibel with Beaulieu accessories (cable, container etc.).
Every bit of information is very welcome!
