Leaving BMMSC on for prolonged periods of time

PostFri Nov 20, 2020 2:10 pm

Is there an issue with leaving the BMMSC on for days...weeks...months?? I'm an analyst and use the camera every day. At the end of the day I just leave it running. Is there an issue with this?

I had all 3 of mine running for 12+ hrs a couple of weeks ago for a shoot. They were plugged into a wall outlet but no issues with heat or anything else. With a 98Wh v mount battery, I get about 6 hours of run time.

Why do you need to leave it on all the time? It's easy enough to shut it down at the end of the day and the start up is pretty quick.
