I recently switched from Convergent Design Odyssey 7Q to Atomos Shogun Inferno for shooting with my Sony FS system. I am using large, genuine NP-F970 L-Series batteries that are very new. The Odyssey 7Q would work for a solid two hours of run time on and off shooting and mostly last a whole intermiten shoot day on a F970 battery. Never felt like it was an issue.
Shogun is DRAINING these batteries way faster, showing me low battery warning within 10 to 15 minutes of shooting with a freshly charged one. Then when I put that battery on charger, it's not entirely dead. When the Odyssey would die that battery was in fact depleted. Anyone troubleshoot this issue or have tips for power issues on Shogun?
Thanks in advance.
