Product Highlights
  • Power Camera for Extended Period of Time
  • World Wide Use 100-240V 50/60Hz AC
  • AC Adapter/ Power Cord/ DC Coupler, Cord

This AC Adapter Kit ACK-E6 from Canon provides a 100-240V 50/60Hz AC power supply source for use worldwide with select Canon cameras. The adapter kit is useful when you need to power your camera for an extended period of time without having to continuously replace and recharge multiple batteries.

The kit comes with a DC coupler, which has an attached 7.5' DC coupler cord. The DC coupler is shaped like a battery, and fits in your camera's battery compartment. The DC coupler cord is then connected to the included 100-240V AC adapter. A 6.6' power cord attaches the adapter to a socket on your wall.

Given the combined length of the two cords, you have a total of approximately 14 feet of cord to comfortably shoot in your studio.

    This is a great idea if you need to have your camera ready to go for video. Video eats up tons of you battery. Even with extra batteries, I had to get these. Some studio and site shots kill my battery. That's why i chose to buy a couple of these for my cameras. The only down side to this is you should not leave your camera going for long periods of time without letting it cool down. The camera sensor gets warm and can alter footage. Nothing major but something to think about with purchasing this. In other words just know your equipment and this will be a great add on for the camera. The other thing is that you'll have a cord dangeling out of the camera, but it's out of the way of the tripod.

    I purchased the AC adpater to explore, make camera settings and download media without discharging the battery. That it does but connecting it to the camera is awkward. The small rubber door to fit the cord through to close the battery door is very stiff, once you locate it. If you are using a battery holder then you have to remove it to load the adapter in the battery well. More engineering needed on this one. But once installed, works as advertised.

      Comments about Canon AC Adapter Kit ACK-E6:

      This is the first adapter I've purchased for any of the 3 Canon SLRs I own. I needed this to power my 5D MkII, which I tether to my MacBook Pro. This adapter relieves my power concerns - batteries "run down" much quicker when shooting in "Live" mode. It's wonderful ... don't know why I waited so long to make this purchase.

      I is extremely easy to use ... inserting the battery adapter into the camera's battery compartment is a snap ... I had none of the problems described in the reviews I read.

      Comments about Canon AC Adapter Kit ACK-E6:

      Did a large photoshoot of over 100 kids using live view tethered to my laptop. Was able to take my time and not worry about dead batteries. Form and fit is perfect and the cord is long enough so you dont have to really challenge yourself to find a closeby outlet. You do need to make sure you have the power cable tucked into the adapter and that you open the rubber housing to allow the cable to come out from the battery compartment correctly (EOS5D3 which is what I have). Yes its more expensive than you would expect for something so simple but you do get what you paid for and why take the chance of perhaps damaging your expensive camera? I had considered other options but this was the way to go for sure.

          A solid product from Canon.
          I first bought an after market adapter to save money. It worked some of the time but not always. I missed a lot of great lighting shots because I chose a cheap adapter. The Canon adapter has been working great. I just wish it didn't cost this much. I feel that Canon has a great product but sells it for as much as they can.

            I have wanted this type of plug for other cameras of mine, but was never able to find what I needed. This allows me to shoot without worry of the battery going out. I want to connect this to a battery so I can have extra power in the field as well.

                              For long term time-lapse photography, spread out over days or months, e.g. for a construction project, this device is indispensible - even if only for the peace of mind that comes from knowing the power supply won't run down before the photgraphy ia completed. The ACK-E6 part that connects to the camera (Canon EOS 60D, in my case)fits neatly and securely into the camera's battery compartment.

                                  I haven't had any problems with the product as of yet and its been a few weeks. I was hoping that it would be cheaper than what I paid for it . But it is what it is .

                                      If you're shooting video or shooting for a long time, this AC adapter is really handy. It saves having to swap out battery packs and is designed to work with the camera. (There's an weatherproofed notch in the battery compartment of the Canon 5D Mark III for the power cable.)

                                          Comments about Canon AC Adapter Kit ACK-E6:

                                          I use it to shoot video with my Canon 5d Mark III.
                                          Saves having to change batteries while shooting.

                                          Make sure to tuck the wire into the track that leads out of the camera. I wish it had a light on the transformer to show that the power is on.

                                          Otherwise, I'm happy with it!
