Product Description

The DC-5D1 is a dummy battery adaptor for the Canon EOS 5D/7D. Attached to a cable mounted 2-Pin Power-Con (D-Tap), it allows the user to power an EOS Camera from an external broadcast battery source.

As our cameras are being used so often for HD video recording, this cable allows the camera to be powered from larger V-Lock (and other) types of battery. The advantages of using a single high capacity battery over dozens of standard Canon LP-E6 batteries are obvious, especially when using a camera rig.

The DC-5D1 just needs to be plugged into a D-Tap power socket on a suitable battery fitting, like our DC-CA5  Power Boxes. The dummy battery contains an 8.4V regulator, so is compatible with any output distributing 10-20V.

This cable can be used to power Canon DSLR bodies such as the Canon 5D2 or 5D3,5d mk iv Canon EOS 7D or 70D and any device that uses Canon LP-E6 batteries such as our Dedo LedZilla LED light or the Zacuto EVF or the Blackmagic monitors.
