powering canon camcorder from 5v cellphone battery
« on: November 14, 2014, 08:20:48 AM »
So I picked up a ravpower 10400mah battery that has two USB power outlets.  Using one to power a Tascam Dr60d.  I'd like to use the other one to back up my Canon HFM500 camcorder.  The camcorder charger outputs 5.3v at 1.5A has an odd sort of C channel shape to it.

Does anyone know of a power cable with a USB on one end and this type of power connector on the other? Or know the name of this power tip so I can search for it?

Here's a link to a replacement charger with the same specs and a better picture of the tip.http://calcellular-store.stores.yahoo.net/can-ca-110.html

This is the only cable with the correct ends that I have found so far.  Ordered one to see if it works.

please keep me posted
To bad it isn't like 10'
Would be killer to have the battery in my bag on the floor with dr-60d and run up the tripod to camera

The USB connector is easy to find, however, but I'm having trouble finding the connector at the camera end.  So I ordered the one from the ebay listing which will likely be long enough for me since I mount my camera on the 60d.  I put the camera up high enough to shoot over people's heads.  Not so great a system for monitoring audio levels. 

If I'm up front, I use a wide angle accessory lens and shoot from a lower position.  Then it's really convenient to have the 60d and the camera mounted together on a stand together. 

If it comes down to it, I'm pretty sure this is a two wire power supply line that could be sliced and extended in length.  I'd still like to find a source for that camera connector.
