      I use this when shooting interviews every week. Whenever the camera is on a tripod it s great to be plugged into a power source. If you aren't sure if the T2i will take AC power, look on the side of the camera below the SD card slot, there is a little rubber flap, that is where the cord to the AC adapter comes out of. I don't know why Canon doesn't just include this with the T2i. The quality of plastic is poor and the cord that goes into the camera is really flimsy. I haven't tried a 3rd party version of this but I don't think it would be much different. Great to have, I use it all the time.

      This is a great product if your use your camera to capture video, in fact I made some interviews using this camera and was able to shoot for 6 or more hours without any battery problems. The mini cable that connects to what seams to be a fake battery that's inserted into de camera, seams to be some what delicate.

          I shoot a lot of interviews with my Canon T5i. Though nothing fancy, this was probably the best piece of equipment I added to my gear. No more changing batteries in the middle of an answer. Plug it in and forget it.

            The power kit means the camera can stay mounted on the tripod all the while shooting is taking place. No need to remove the camera and swap batteries. Indispensable for stopmotion work! It fits great, well-designed. Superb. So happy to find this option.

                This adapter works, which is more than many can say about the 3rd party and "import" versions. Expensive for what it is, but gets the job done. Wish it was smaller and lighter.

                      I've been wanting one of these forever and have been putting it off. Good bye charging batteries for indoor shoots. Only gripe: I wish it was a little more solidly built.

                        I needed AC power for my Canon T4i in situations where changing and recharging batteries was impractical (event videography, studio photography). The unit is well-built and relatively lightweight. The included coupler for LP-E8 compatible cameras separates from the power cord, which is a nice feature. I'm not a big fan of the "big block" transformer, but the attached cord is long enough so you can keep it on the floor even when the camera is at eye-level on a tripod.There were other less expensive options, but the Canon build quality and guaranteed compatibility made it worth it for me to go with this unit.

                            This is a great adapter if you are going to be using your camera in a stationary position for a long shoot. It was great not to have to worry about batteries dying and when you would have to switch them out. Just know the cord is a little short so you may want to pack an extension cord

                            I guess this product is just fine, it´s very good not to be changing batteries every time. A must have if you do video like me and have long sessions in a place where you don't need to be moving so much.

                            I think this is overpriced, mainly because of the construction, i'm gonna me taking some extra care on this, since the cable to the camera seems really thin and flimsy. The reason i got this is because i was afraid to supply my camera with a third party power solution.

                            I am using the AC adapter kit in a research project for time lapse photography. It has worked well so far. It does not get hot and I feel reasonably comfortable leaving it in operation overnight. It is not an elegant design since the cable sticks out from the battery compartment. The price is a bit high for an AC adapter but B&H's price was relatively low compared to other vendors. It arrived quite quickly and in excellent new condition. All considered, I am glad that I ordered this accessory for our application. I do not know that it would be that useful for the typical owner. Additional batteries might be a better accessory for most owners.

                              We use this a/c adapter to continually shoot photos of our products. The issue we were experiencing was that as the battery life was weakening the pictures were darkening. Now with a continual charge our image quality is consistent.

                              The cord length is plenty long and the quality of the adapter is great!

                                    I used this for the first time this past weekend during a video shoot and my only regret is that I didn't buy it sooner. I shot multiple interviews and it's such a relief not having to worry about whether a battery is going to die in the middle of a answer. It's a simple piece of equipment but one you should have in your kit.

                                      I needed this for my Canon T3i and the first time I ran it for at least six hours and never had a problem. Works great and it is well made.

                                        I purchased this product to extend the possibilities of time lapse shots in studio and it's a complete game changer. I can now run multi-day/week/month time lapse shots without the need to recharge and swap out batteries. It also works in conjunction with the Canon battery grip. Both my 650d and battery grip have small doors to allow the wire to pass through without kinks or alterations.All the pieces are solid. The battery shaped adapter that plugs into power cord is very light and obviously can not handle much abuse. With careful handling and storage, this kit will last for years.

                                        Great for use when taking star trail and time lapse photography. Do not have to worry about the battery dying. Was able to take over 1000 photos.
                                        Would not want to risk buying a knock off brand, recommend to buy the Canon Brand.

                                              Works excellent. Just wish it wasn't so dang expensive! But buying it was a choice and I chose it because the cheap ones break on me all the time and I need reliability in my photo booth setups.
