Panasonic DMW-DCC12 reviews

DMW-DCC12 DC Coupler for Select Lumix Digital Cameras is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from It does what is meant to. I've just bought it for my GH4. Regarding the comment that yoou can't close the battery lid you actually can. There is in the GH4 a small rubber cover at the front which flips to put the cable through and then you close the lid. I'll give it only a four stars because while I am happy Panasonic offers this option, these cameras are not cheap at all and an inbuilt socket in the camera would have been a much more satisfiyng option. I was in a rush, I just want it. Together with the AC adaptor the cost on both items paricularly the AC power supply seem quite high for what it is. In the case of the DCC12 a plastic case with just a cable hanging out of it?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from works with Panasonic GH4 Using this with a Tekkeon myPower ALL external battery I can power my GH4 for hours and hours on continuous video shooting.FYI You must set the external battery to 9v even though the GH4 says it only needs 8.4v--otherwise the GH4 turns on but says that the battery does not work and then shuts itself off.It's a bit annoying that the battery door of the GH4 doesn't close when this DC coupler is plugged in and there doesn't seem to be an easy way to remove that door. I just use a rubber band to keep the door closed as much as possible but it is a delicate arrangement and definitely makes the GH4 no longer weatherproof.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from External power connectivity for your GH3 This product is installed into the battery compartment of the Panasonic GH3 to provide a jack than can power the camera from an 8.4V DC power source with a capacity of 1.2A or more. The Panasonic DMW-AC8 AC adapter is usually used with this to power the camera from an AC wall socket, but another 8.4V DC power source such as an RC battery will also work, as long as it has a compatible 1.7 x 4.5mm plug. Recommended for anyone who wants to power the GH3 from an external power source. Pros: - allows studio work without battery hassles - allows long video or timelapses from external power Cons: - perhaps a bit pricy for what it does. - a bit fiddly compared to a having jack built into the camera body itself. But the camera has no such jack so this adapter is the only game in town.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works The coupler works great. I love how there is no strain on any terminals like is the case on my Sony A99. I was also unsure about leaving the battery compartment cover open, which is not the case. There is a slot for the cable to go through so you can close the battery cover compartment still and not have interference with the tripod plate. I hated how this was a separate item from the part that plugs into the wall. Keep that in mind. You'll need the other accessory in order for this to work. Actually you need three parts, this item, then there is a power supply that this hooks to, and then you still need the cable from your battery charger to get it to the outlet! It would be nice if they'd simply made an all in one adapter and not three parts. It's also rediculously expensive. It does work great though. Price and need for additional accessories took away a star.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Essential but Pricey accessory for GH-4/GH-5 First of all, I had to wait quite a while for this basic item along with the DMW-AC10 AC Adapter. And it is good for Panasonic's bottom line to sell 2 pieces , which make up basically an AC supply of the GH-5.I am saying this because, In the couple months that I waited , I bought 6 batteries. This item could come in handy if external battery source is used , like a V-lock on a rig. Perhaps they should sell 2 models one with the dummy battery and an AC plug, the other with 2 pieces. But, they should charge $50, instead of over $100 for the pair. I didn't buy a 3rd party solution as I was nervous about warrantee coverage, if the power supply shorted or gave erratic current.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Necessary Accessory for GH-3 This acessory is absolutely necessary for any serious GH-3 owner. Useful when coupled with Panny DMW-AC8PP power supply (also sold separately) or other external DC power source ( i.e. see Switronix DSLR Powertap Regulator Cable for Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH2 / DMC-GH3 Camera B&H # SWXPDGH2 Mfr # XP-DSLR-GH2 This DC Coupler works as advertised and won't break the bank. However, Panasonic makes this needlessly difficult by NOT including this with Camera Body purchase as they did with GH-1. Probably my only (minor) gripe about the GH-2 / GH-3 cameras. There is no good reason why AC / DC power options are not included. To complicate matters, this item is rather difficult to find in stock (it took B&H over a month to get more from manufacturer). Also be aware that unlike B&H, many other Panny retailers cannot carry this item unless they have a certain retail / parts relationship with Panasonic, even if they are authorized to carry and sell the camera and lenses. Score two points for B&H.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better design This works as it should. The design of Panasonic AC supplies is much better than that for Canon and Sony. With the latter two, you need to buy a separate supply for each camera, as the dummy battery is permanently attached to the transformer. With Panasonic, you need only 1 transformer (at least for 7.2V systems, which I think almost everything is), and a dummy battery for each type of camera. Of course, you can cut the cord between the transformer and dummy battery even if it's permanently attached, and kluge up your own dummy, but then it is a kluge.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from AC Power for GH3 Works well but you must have the DMW -AC adapter to use AC power. The coupler replaces a battery for AC power and fits into the battery compartment of the GH3. It has a small opening for the coupler's connector to attach to the DMW-AC8 adapter while keeping the door to the battery compartment tightly closed. Good alternative to using batteries.
