Post Any Guidance?
Looking into external battery pack solutions for my t2i. Anyone know of any guides on how to make the battery pack/adapter? Or are there places I can purchase any such system? I'm looking to get long battery life, obviously. So I figure there has to be a way to hook a large battery to my DSLR, but I'm not sure how to do it.

Easy answer, just buy one of these:
http://cgi.ebay.com/ACK-E8-ACKE8-AC-Pow ... 3a5e7a78e0

It comes with the fake battery, so you can make up a DC adapter for it or use it with the supplied AC unit.

I did almost exactly what this guy did, and it has been working like a champ! viewtopic.php?f=12&t=2546

It requires basic soldering, and is definitely a DIY project. Not quite the simplest solution in terms of effort, but it is probably one of the cheapest methods out there, and really is not that difficult. I learned how to solder just for this project, and it was no sweat. If you would like some more information, I'd be happy to help!
