external power supply for Canon EOS400D or 50D

Hi all,

is any product available I can use with Canon EOS 400D or 50D body to plugin an external Powersupply, such as:
http://www.solariflex.com/20-batterie-externe-universelle-50w-mp3450.html
(withou using grip extensions holding 2 Canon accus or 6 AA cells...)
I found this product above in merlin/pw thread as source for the Merlin pano head.

background: standard canon 750ma accu is accurate if using 18-55mm lens. but If I use sigma 120-400 APG DS OS lens I can take 60 raw images (if OS is activated... ok in practice for panos senseless...).

So if I plan to use a bigger pano using HDR I finally can take max. 60/3 = 20 images before changing battery ;-).
in case of 360 pano I have to change battery 5-6 times per row ;-)

something like a mobile diesel would be perfect ;-))

Liebe Gruesse,
Georg

Hallo Josef,

danke für den Link - schaut toll aus. Fürs Notebook etc. bestimmt wunderbar. Problem bei meiner Canon ist aber, das dort kein externer Stromanschluss existiert, nur ein Batteriefach, wo ich bestenfalls einen Batteriegriff an/einstecken kann, der zwei accus enthà¤lt. Also statt 1x 750mA 2x 1200mA.

Josef, thanks for link. for pc etc perfect usable i think. Problem of my canon is it has no external powerplug. Only one battery box were I plug in a batteri grip holding 2 accus. so instead of 1x750mA 2x 1200 mA...


Liebe Gruesse,
Georg

hmm Lara...

what about this solution:

take the AC/DC Adaptor for the Ixus 500, like this one:
Canon ACK-500

indoor you've allways power from wired cable...

and outdoor combine it with following:

I use it with my Merlin panohead and also my notebook. It comes with lots of adapter so Canon AC/DC Adaptor should be no problem to plugin.

its not the cheapest combination ;-)

... and exactly such an AC/DC adapter I would search for my Canon EOS400D. the 400D itself does have a little gap at battery closing so AC/DC cable from batteryadaptor comes out of camera. also batterygrips does have this, so the AC/DC Adaptor should exist...

Apologies. It is the Canon ACK DC20 for the Canon XT and XTi as well as the G7 and G9. It sells for $53.24 USD or 37.30 Euros. I confirmed this on dpreview.com and an old Canon page.

Perfect! Thanks for this info. Exact what I searched...
... amazon.com states it cant deliver product to my delivery address...
.. but with product name it should be very easy to find other sources!

Many thanks again!
