Battery cabin design is direction reversed.

[ New ]

Currently, the battery door is open from the bottom. When charging to camera directly, usually I need to flip the device up to down for attaching the cable.

 

And the most funny thing is, while mount of the Gen8 is built in, the screw for mounting is very easy to block the battery door. It's a good design that not need to remove from mount for changing battery. But currently, I required a skill to do that due to the reversed battery door.

I need to unlock the door, open it a little, shorten the lock back, and make it full opened. Or due to the length problem, the battery door with opened lock will be blocked by the mounting screw.

You can flip the mount around so that the screw is on the same side as the mode button.

Due to the direction, I cannot, unless I change another mount.
