^Bean.. the Radio Shack Adapta-plug has a right angle DC connector that fits the VMS. I don't remember which plug though. Worked for me perfectly in my 02IB days.
And it sounds like you need to make some stilts for your VMS.. that will help keep the KCY binder from getting wonky. That was the biggest issue with a VMS for me.. the unit is small... but with the KCY and BNC on the bottom, it becomes much bigger in the bag.
Sorry for the off topic stuff...... again.
Exactly! I have mine sideways in my bag since its only an ON/OFF knob and gain knob, so I just put it on 20db of gain and turn it on, so sideways is perfect for me! But the straight DC plug is very close to the side of my bag! Its not an issue unless you like fall onto my bag or hit that dc plug specifically! It doesn't just lose power/signal! Only if its moved severely
Id LOVE to get a rt-angle rat shack plug, but Tonedeaf told me that Schoeps said that if you forgot to shut the VMS OFF, before you unplug the dc connector, it fries it somehow
That's why I was so anal about getting the actual Schoeps dc plug
But Ive also heard from other tapers, just like you said above, that the rat shack worked fine for them too! Schoeps reasoning behind that was that the Schoeps dc plug has a special plastic piece at the end of the plug, to stop the board or power from frying if its pulled before the VMS is turned off! Well, I do that ALL of the time unfortunately
Sorry for the threadjack lol
Ed, Id love to know how the Naztech works for the F8/PSP3 combo, if you go that route
Id like to grab one myself, to power my VMS/70d combo
