Post Canon DR-E6 adapter
Just got this DR-E6 adapter for my 7D and want to hook it up to my alternate dc power source for some extended shooting. Does anyone know the pinout for this thing. I get the + and - in the middle, but what are the D and C contacts on the adapter for. Also, what would be the right power range to use for this. I know the LP-E6 battery is 7.2 v but would 7.5 volts be ok on this.

Any help would be most appreciated

You should be fine with anything from about 7 to 8.5 volts.

Thanks. Any idea what those extra contacts are for?

They are for battery status sensing, they should not be needed for supplying power from an external DC source.

Can anyone say exactly what (hopefully standard) connector the DR-E6 has?

I'd like to mate it with a BP-970G 7.2v camcorder battery for extra long shooting.

I generally cut all the connectors off all my gear, as there are so many different proprietary ones, then replace them all with standard 2.5mm barrel DC plugs & sockets.

Hi,
I'm having a bit of a trouble finding out how to power a 5D mark II with an external power source. I've bought a battery, emptied the contents (including the electronics) and soldered wires to the - and + poles of the battery. From there the wires go down to a larger video camera battery, which delivers the same voltage as the standard LP-E6-battery used in the 5DII.

The problem is that the 5D won't power up at all. I've measured the current, and the voltage is right, and I have not mixed up the - and + on the battery.

Could the problem be related to the fact that I've thrown away the electronics in the battery? Does the camera need any form of input on the T and C-connectors?

Best regards,
SinWin

Could it have something to do with the battery door not being shut?

Thanks for the reply. The battery door is fully shut, the wires exiting through the little built-in slot in the battery compartment.
