Hello fellow photographers,
I stream on twitch and wanted to make my Nikon D3300 my streaming camera with camlink, but the thing is that the battery dies real fast. My question is, can I use the camera and charge it at the same time? I still am not sure how streaming with camlink exactly works but am pretty sure, that the battery will die in probaly 2 hours into the stream.

Nikon makes an external power supply for your camera that basically allows you to plug it into a wall socket and operate the camera with it connected that way. However, since I don't use anything like this I don't have the part numbers handy. I want to say EP-5A but I'm pretty sure that's just the part that connects to the camera and doesn't include the actual transformer. I would suggest that you check out the Nikon web pages for this accessory or check the online retailer you purchase from. They should be able to point you to right kit.

Yeah, that looks like it... although, as I said, I've never used any of this stuff. Thanks,
