I have a Canon Powershot G10 and I am interested in taking timelapses and long exposure photographs. I have the Canon ac adapter but this isnt useful when Im away from a power outlet, so I can about the idea of building a battery backup using RC batteries. The RC batteries run at the same voltage as my camera so I dont see a problem there. My question is are there any problems I dont see? and how would I go about splicing my dc plug cable to allow me to hook up the batteries? Thanks
The following should work. Buy the RC battery connector pair (known as a Tamiya assuming a standard RC car battery). Try a hobby shop. Cut the camera power cable in a desired location, Connect the end similar to the RC battery (female) to the end connected to the power supply. To the end connected to the camera connect the other connector (male). You will have to determine the correct polarity.
