Hot shoe voltage?

I am trying to find out the voltage of the hot shoe on the xh-a1. I just got a remote camera that runs off 9-12v and I wanted to make a mout to use the power from the camera. Is this possible? Or is there any other way to get that power from the camera?

Thank you!

To the best of my understanding from the manual, the hot shoe is a synch contact for a Canon Speedlight so it can be used for making still images. I think it is not a voltage supply at all. See Page 118. / Battle Vaughan/miamiherald.com video team

Thats what I was afraid of... I know I have heard of things like a video monitor being powered by the camera... How is this done?

Some pro cameras have power taps for various purposes. XHA1 isn't one of them...one of our people likes to use a Varizoom external monitor occasonally, but he has to run it off a separate battery. I know of no way to tap the camera power, don't see any mention of it in the manual...... :(,,,,,/ bv
