HDW : V3 installed, the installation happens in 2 phases the first takes 5m the second takes 10m. I used a fully charged battery which is against Sony’s “use a mains adapter”. If the mains fails there is a possibility your camera will not work or brick, so with a fully charged U90 battery you have tons of power and takes that doubt away from a mains failure.
