Notes on using the FU-1000

"The FU-1000 cannot be powered from an AC/mains outlet (with the CA-900/CA-910 Compact Power Adapter) or from your car battery (with the CB-900/CB910 Car Batery Adapter). You must use a batery pack (or two with the CH-900/CH-910 Dual Batery Charger/Holder* (sold separately) to power and use the FU-1000."

Hope that helps

Dan

The simplest reason for using batteries vs.the "Canon" CA-910A compact power adapter is the compact power adapters output, {6.0V - 1.7A (VTR)} & {8.4V - 1.2A (BATT)}, is not sufficiant to power the FU-1000 viewfinder.

One could hypathetically connect a Canon DC-900 "type" dummy to a power supply that does provide enough voltage and amperage (7.5V - 1A), to power the viewfinder (12w draw).

If the forementioned is pursued, please keep in mind that a small portion of the plastic in the "dummy" case must be removed from in between the positive and negative contacts, (following the depth and width of the existing channel through to the end), so as to not activate the switch inside and at the top of the battery bay (XL1s models).

My only expierience is with the XL1s, and I have had very good performance using the "hypathetical" solution.
