As an Electronic technician of many years, I am disappointed to not see the D.C. voltage, current and polarity ratings fairly made public.

As a Consumer, when I buy 1 product, I feel cheated if I am unduly pressured, cajoled, nudged, etc. to buy a specific other to go with it when I know there is no real need for the relationship between the products to be proprietorised. This I see as a consumer rights issue, comparable to the right to repair.

I have bought one of these cameras, and would like to use it from external D.C. power, but not if I am going to be forced to use Canon's own power supply.

I am thinking to do some electrical testing to reveal the facts, then I can make my own supply or do a hybrid from what is on the industrial market.

If anyone else feels this way, though, I would caution them when testing to measure current waveform with a hall effect probe and oscilloscope as well as just voltage and current, both with flash and without, since the flash or other internal components may produce current inrushes which would need to be considered in the design of an alternative power supply.

Also, the right of warranty may be an issue if an alternative supply has been used, but if the user can prove that such use could not have caused any damage, it would suggest itself to be uncomfortable to Canon if they objected to honouring a warranty beyond that.
