Canon Power Supplies...

This page is now for reference only - these standard adapters are no longer available - Click here for Pro Power Supplies for Canon dSLR Cameras.

There's nothing more annoying than going back to your camera and finding that it hasn't taken the shots it was set to take and scrabbling around on the floor trying to review and count a series of shots to work out how many you have to take to get the required number. Unless you take the camera out of the scope, then there's refocussing and aligning... So you change the battery and start the set again and check it more regularly to make sure it hasn't run down your spare yet and hoping the original will charge before it does.

Does this sound familiar? I got so fed up I developed an alternative. I can now power my dSLR from either a power station for dark site visits or using my Bench power supply at home.

The 'battery' end is made from a generic battery - all inner components are recycled - there may well be some marks on the case made during disassembly, though all units are tested for fit and function. This is fitted with a regulator to supply the correct voltage. A cable is connected, positioned to come through the small rubber capped hole on the lip of the camera's battery compartment and this connects to a cigar lighter plug. The battery is re-sealed and can now be used with a Power Station, a car or leisure battery or a bench power supply. Any supply that gives between 12v and 30v at 1.25A will be sufficient to power your camera.

astronomiser now only supply these with fused cigar lighters to protect against shorts etc - if linking to your mains supply/ bench power supply then you may need a power supply adapter.

If you need to connect the adapter in a different way then please contact me.

DC power converter for Canon 450D/ 500D or 1000D...

Supplied with either 2m, 3m or 5m of cable and a cigar lighter connector, suitable for use with a 12v to 30v 1.5A power supply.

This will power your camera from a power station for many hours or indefinitely when using a bench power supply. A suitable supply for use with this is available from Maplins - see the XM20 power supply unit.

When using a dSLR for astrophotography, although it is useful to use live view to focus your telescope/ camera combination, the rear LCD on the camera and the battery or adapter create a lot of internal heat which will seriously reduce the quality of long exposure images so you should switch the LCD off before starting an imaging run.

These adapters will not supply sufficient power to run a Canon 40D or 50D in live view mode for more than a couple of minutes - after this time, the camera will stop functionning and you will need to disconnect the adapter for a few minutes before re-starting.

If you wish to run a Canon 20D/ 30D/ 40D or 50D then we recommend that you use a Pro Power Converter.
