5D battery overvoltage
« on: August 03, 2012, 06:05:10 PM »
Since the 1 series cameras have their battery voltage at 11.1 and the 5 series at 7.2, has anyone been crazy enough to say rewire a 5D grip to alter the batteries in series and overvolt the camera for faster framerates?

There are more consequences of adding voltage than faster frame rates.  So there's no way I'd even consider doing that.  $3500 is a lot of money.
