As far as I could find out, Nikon do not make a DC adapter for their cameras, so I decided to take it upon myself to create one, I am far from a skilled electrician, but I thought I would give it a crack….. whats the worst that could happen…… I blow up my camera….. hmmm!

The idea was to create a power source and intervalometer in one weather proof unit for long exposures and time lapses that would be too draining on a standard battery or grip. It can be run from any 12 or 24v source depending on how much weight you want to lug around with you.

I didnt find it to hard to source the parts, I did have to order some items off ebay only to chop off the nikon plug as soon as I took it out of the package. It was quite fiddly to solder it all together, but only because I wanted to keep the overall size to a minimum.

The power source consists of to DC voltage regulators, one to supply the camera through its DC adapter port, and the other to supply the intervalometer, although this could last for over a week on 2xAAA batteries, at least now I dont have to remember to charge them aswell.

Total cost would have been around the $150 mark with the intervalometer and battery and sacrificial items being the most expensive parts

The intervalometer is removable and can be used with the camera on smaller less demanding projects. and I intend to add in provisions for other accessories in the future, such as a dew heater for the foggy nights.

Since I am far from a skilled electrician, and I could not find any information on the web about creating one of these….. I have no doubt done something wrong here, but so far it works and I havent let any smoke out of the camera. Having said that, if you know more about this stuff and I have missed or over looked something I would appreciate the input.

I think the next project is going to be to see if I can conceal a gps locating device somewhere in the camera, so I can have some peace of mind about leaving the camera unattended for long periods of time




Shot on my point and shoot…. hence the poor quality photos…… Sorry.
