Here is a nice video guide about how to best set up your shiny new…
If you always have to carry lots of spare batteries with you then Caleb Pike’s inexpensive and simple do-it-yourself power solution is for you. If you want to get 12 hours of battery life then read on.
I recently purchased this NP-F970 Battery Adapter that is compatible with Canon DSLRs. I was a little worried about the quality from the pictures online but I thought I’d take the plunge and share my findings with you guys. After receiving the unit, I hooked it up with 2 Sony NP-F970 batteries and let if run all day with the camera recording AND powering my monitor… 8 Hours later, I called it a day and decided I like this thing. I still haven’t fully tested the unit to see how long it would power the camera and accessories but it’ll give you a full day at least.
As Caleb Pike said, the solution isn’t perfect so far. Room for your improvements :-)[dslrvideoshooter via nofilmschool]
