Use T12/6 and T12/12 of the blue connector of the quadlock. I can't tell you what's the positive and negative though.

Ah yes, my mistake.
Connect the black to the thick brown/white wire (GND)
Connect the red to the thick red wire.

thanks for the help. the wires are alot smaller than those wires. will it have any issues ie melting from current?

No the wires will only draw the current they need for the camera.

So I've tried that. Still doesn't work. I'm going to try the piggy back fuse connection and see if that works. No doubt I'll be back crying for guidance

Thanks for the help iichel
