Pretty standard piece of equipment, with typical Canon quality. No issues with cabling. I prefer the Canon unit over after market brands sold on e-bay because Canon's cables do not stiffen up and get brittle at low temperatures. I shoot outdoors in the field (astrophotography) at temperatures down to 15F (I use this adapter connected to a 12V-110V converter as camera batteries die quickly when cold). Many cheap cables get extremely brittle at temps below 30F and may break if flexed. This adapter keeps working fine with no issues.

I normally buy the cheap alternatives but for Video this is the only option to avoid audio issues caused by the cheaper non-shielded cords. If you are not shooting video at all or are not capturing audio then you might consider the cheaper alternatives.

1. Great product good quality.
2. Way overpriced.
3. Should be included standard with canon camera packages.

I use it with the 60D.

4 stars because I feel price gouged by Canon.

I had a photo booth I setup for a friend and the camera had to run continuously for six hours straight. I knew that using batteries wasnt going to cut it. So I gave in and purchased the AC adapter. It was a lifesaver and performed flawlessly. What I didn't realize was that when it was used in conjunction with a battery grip and battery in the second slot it would also charge that battery. I highly recommend purchasing one for long shoots or set ups where your camera needs to be on an always on state.

The adapter ultimately worked fine on my Canon 60D. But when I first received it, I was simply testing it and loaded it in the camera, and nothing. No power. I looked online and saw recommendations to swap the polarity of the plug into the transformer. Nothing. In looking at the "battery" portion of the adapter, I noticed the silver contacts weren't the same as the actual battery. I thought this was the problem I was having. But alas, it wasn't. I eventually stumbled on the problem... I simply had never shut the battery door on the camera itself. The instructions do say to close the battery compartment, but since the battery, and the adapter, both "click" into place in the battery compartment of the camera, I thought that was enough to make contact with everything inside. There are no connectors on the compartment door itself, so I'm not sure why I need to close it, but I finally did on a whim, and voila, power! So the contact placement of the adapter, though different from the actual batteries, is still OK, weird, but works fine. Just make sure to CLOSE THE BATTERY DOOR! Really getting use out of the AC Adapter for those times when your battery isn't charged and you need to take some shots inside, or for doing studio shots without having to worry about battery life.
Enjoy!

I've been tinkering around with time-lapse and tethered shooting and wanted to overcome the issues associated with running on batteries.

Chose to go OEM with this. The reviews of third party offerings seemed to be all over the place and I was uncomfortable risking thousands of dollars of gear to a knock off

I've now used this adapter on my 5D mk2/3 and 7D cameras with and without battery grips. No issue. For those commenting as to not being able to close the battery door, you need to route the cable out through a small, not so obvious,rubber seal. Just google "canon 5D battery adapter cable routing" and you should get a YouTube video.

You're probably looking for a way to use your camera over a long period of time, and you don't want to fry your camera. Well, you've found it. It's really the only option.

There are a bunch of other, cheaper options, but none without a risk. If you read the reviews, each of the cheaper options have at least one reviewer who had an issue with quality, compatibility, or (worst case) frying the camera. I decided that, even though this was four times the price, it was worth the price.

I saw that a few reviewers complained about poor craftsmanship. I haven't experienced any issues of the converter box breaking. I read one review about the camera door not closing completely. This was not an issue for my 6D. I submitted pictures to the product page if you'd like to see them. The battery "coupler" (the piece you put into the camera) has a little groove that you route the chord through, and then the chord should fit through a window in the grip (where your pinky usually rests). It fit nice and snug, with no issues.

I gave this five stars because it met my expectations, and I knew exactly how much I was paying before I clicked the "checkout" button.

If you are looking for another alternative, take a look at a battery grip for your camera. The grips accept one or two batteries, or they will even work with a single AC Adapter kit. The battery grips will provide twice the battery capacity, but still gives you flexibility of movement. This setup would cost more than twice the price of a single AC adapter, but may be worth the extra money for your setup. Besides, they look cool :)

Hope this helps!!

For those of us who take a lot of pictures and use the camera to download large raw files, having this accessory is a necessity.

And yes, it works as advertised. The combined lengths of the adapter cord and the power cored allow for a good deal of distance from the nearest wall outlet too.

This accessory is recommended.
