    is there something that will connect my camera to the AC wall socket so i can get constant power?
     
  2. Why would you want that, plugging into the wall outlet isn't the best idea.

    If there is a way to do it, using a surge protector would be a better idea..... :Ownedd:

  6. he he hooks his camera directly to the wall and there's a power surge his camera will turn into a $1000 paper weight. I hope you know not to plug your TV directly into the wall.....

    I've only had power problems once, and that was when lightning hit my garage.

    The funny thing was anything networked or connected to a phone line was destroyed. Nothing was damaged from the power line.

    Probably because all of our power is above ground here.

    I have two batteries for my Canon Rebel XT, these last for well over 700-1000 RAW/HIGH JPG images. They charge in under an hour so I can swap one out and have the other charging if I think I might need more. Even when the camera has been left on and set to no sleep after a couple of hours I still had plenty of juice left. Cords just get in the way so if you can get away from the cords so much the better, IMO.

    Maybe he is doing an extended time lapse or something.

    Either way, here is the product you're looking for. It took me a whopping 10 seconds to find it on Amazon.
