Battery/AC Powered. This rental includes a Sony battery plate that allows the unit to be battery powered with the included batteries. This rental also includes an AC adapter for powering the unit via wall outlet.

Multiple SSDs Required. This rental doesn’t include any SSDs and they fill up quickly. Please note, this recorder requires specific SSDs and most RAW and HFR shooting modes require you to use two SSDs simultaneously.
