Product Highlights
  • Optional Power Supply
  • Saves Battery Power
  • Requires Power Connector

The Nikon EH-5b AC Adapter for Various Nikon Digital Cameras is an optional power supply for an array of Nikon digital cameras. It is compatible with the Nikon Coolpix P7100, the Nikon 1 V1, and the D300, D3000, D3000S, D3100, D3200, D40, D40x, D5100, D60, D70, D700, D7000, D7100, D70s, D80, D800, and D90. Plugging the adapter into a wall outlet and charging your camera this way saves battery power and comes in handy when the camera is being used indoors for extended periods of time, such as during studio sessions, while uploading files to a PC, or while playing back media on a TV. The adapter comes with a power cord with US plug for insertion into a power outlet, but requires a power connector (sold separately), such as the EP-5A for the Coolpix P7100, D3100, D3200 or D5100.

    Pros: With our camera systems (Nikon D300s) being mounted in a laboratory setting using this power system was better than dealing with batteries. Works great and is often used in excess of 12 continuous hours.

    Cons: Transformer in the middle of the connecting cord is more difficult to mount to our telescoping arm system than if it was at the AC power end with a single long cord.

    Yes, it keeps your cameras running, but it's got a short cable (6') a heavy transformer right in the middle (why not at the end?) and an loose-ish (non-locking) connector to your camera's specific battery which pops apart all day long.

    So I heat-shrinked mine together.

    Comments about EH-5b AC Adapter for Various Nikon Digital Cameras:

    I use an Nikon AC Adapter with my D7000 DSLR when doing astrophotography from my observatory. I had previously used the EH-5a model for many many years with my D70 DSLR and then D7000 DSLR, but it recently failed. I was happy to see that B&H had a new model.

    Comments about EH-5b AC Adapter for Various Nikon Digital Cameras:

    I used this for my d4 at a wedding for creating a time-lapse,
    it is a good quality product from nikon, through at its price this should really be included free with the nikon,
    you must spend more money to buy a nikon EP-6 battery adapter to make it work.

        I use this on my Nikon D800. Just be aware that you may need some sort of additional adaptor between this thing and your camera, as I did! Works great though.

              I haven't used this yet because the other part that makes this piece work is still on back order. However I'm sure once I receive it this will work very well.

                  My real rave is about B&H. I did an over night order for it to be delivered at a hotel where I would be staying next. When I got there it was in my room waiting for me. You can't beat that. As for the Nikon gear, it works just fine, which is what I expect from Nikon.

                    Used in a studio environment.

                    Great things - It's Genuine Nikon like all my other gear.

                    Dislike the plug between the Power Supply and the battery pack adapter. Cannot charge the battery while it's plugged in.

                        After shooting all day I many times will shoot over 500 pictures and when I get home I review all of the pictures on my HDTV and was using up my battery at an alarming rate.now I can review,crop,and make other changes to my pictures without punishing my battery.Shooting pictures in the field uses very little power as compared to 7 or 8 hours at home with the battery on all that time.Buy it and you will love it as I do and it will save you money.

                          You really need this if you're shooting video for a long time, since the battery (including those in the battery grip that holds two batteries) life is pretty short. I attached a battery grip, but the camera still said it was out of power, so it's not as reliable as having a/c available.

                                Not happy that Nikon makes you buy a "Power Connector" in order for it to be used on specific cameras. I didn't need to do that with other external AC power supplies.

                                Didn't read this (entirely my own fault-B&H states it) so am waiting for a D800 connector to come. I suppose it will make sense down the line - i.e. won't need to buy whole AC adapter(s) only a camera specific adapter.
                                Note to Nikon: Please don't change the voltage on future cameras

                                        Great for studio use instead of having to use batteries.

                                          After deciding to use my D70 solely for lab work, both macro and micro, it became very tiresome to keep charging my two battery packs over and over again. This adapter gives me unbroken work for many hours!

                                                Must also buy the EP-5A. Worked great for my Nikon D5200. Gave my battery time to recharge during the wedding ceremony. We were ready to go at the reception!

                                                      Does what it's supposed to. The D800 at least has a neat little fold away port so that you can insert the battery tray and still close the door with the cable coming out.
