Hey There dxfec,
ikan actually is replacing the V8000HD with the V8000HDe. The "e" for enhanced. The V8000HDe can now be compatible with many different power options, for example, DV batteries such as Sony, Canon, Panasonic, and JVC. In addition, pro batteries like the Sony V-mount and Anton Bauer batteries.
The V8000HDe has battery plates as accessories that makes these batteries compatible.
The V8000HDe is the same price as the V8000HD of $795. The DV battery plates are $29.99 and the pro battery plates are $149.00
Here is a picture of the V8000HDe with our V-mount pro battery plate.
The pro battery plate includes the battery plate and our metal inversion bracket with VESA holes ready for mounting. The bracket can also be used to under sling your monitor in addition to taking in the heavy weight of the battery off of the monitor.
I hope this helps.
