Thread: Canon Camera Hook to Household Mains

    Default Canon Camera Hook to Household Mains

    Hi guys,

    I'm using a Canon 550D. Am wondering if its possible to run the camera using the household power mains?

    I've searched the box for such an adaptor and the camera for such a port for power but had no such luck.

    Tried googling too but the results didn't seem to be useful. Any insight, please?

    you need to use a battery grip and do some modification on the battery grip,
    using additional battery will be much easy solution.

    Looks like there's an AC adapter ACK-E8


    if you search this page under 'power source', it mentions this ACK-E8 as well.
    Not sure why you'd need so much power though. Fully charged battery not enough?
