Hello,

 

Is there an AC adapter for the Z50 camera? Well, I don't know if it would be AC or a DC adapter but something that will allow me to film for hours.

 

Is there anything like that?

 

Miguel.

I think I found the answer.

 

On the manual, it says there is an AC adapter, an optional EH-73P charging AC adapter. I just bought one, let's see once I get it how it goes. It is on page 433 of the manual here... http://download.niko...50RM_(En)03.pdf

Look at page 434. "Note that although the camera can be used while connected, the battery will not charge and the camera will not draw power from the charging AC adapter while the camera is on."

 

This power supply will unfortunately not solve your problem. It will charge as soon as you switch the camera off, but as long as the camera is on, it will draw from the battery.

I wish I had seen your message Merco before I bought the adapter, which didn't work as I wanted hahaha
 
Well, this camera has been a failure for me, I need to be able to record continuously for hours and can stop to change the battery.
 
Does any of you know of a camera that could function without the battery but through a power cable?
 
I will appreciate any suggestion.
 
Miguel.

DSLRs and MILCs are made for shooting short clips, not continuous use in video mode. They all have limits on how long you can record.

It sounds like you need a dedicated video camera.
