Can I power my Marshall monitor from my XL1S?

Hello All:

I have an XL1S, and I've recently bought a used Marshall V LCD4 Pro monitor to put on top of it. I have the ac, and battery and charger for the monitor, but the battery for it makes the whole unit (camera + monitor) a little front heavy. Is there some way I can power the monitor straight from my XL1S? Thanks for helping out a newbie!
Sincerely,
Bruce Marusich

The battery in your XL1s is 7.2volts. The display is *probably* 12 volts. You may lookinto some of the oem battery packs for the XL1s as they may provide you with a 12v tap. There are devices that convert the 7.2 XL1s batteries to 12 volts. That doesn't solve your problem but perhaps is an interesting alternative.

FWIW:, the 5 volt outputs on the XL1 series are intended for powering low load items such as the Canon microphones, the MA100/200 adapters and the RF output adapters. They are not suitable for powering things like a LCD monitor.

Powering Multiple Devices- Various Voltages- One Power Source

Anton/Bauer System will allow you to power multiple components from one battery. The Battery bracket XL1/2 mounts to the back of the camera.
This bracket has a voltage converter that allows 7.2 volts to power the camera, and gives you a PowerTap output to power other acessories. You can add a PowerTap multi-- this will allow you to power the camera and 4 other accessories-- all from the same battery. For example- a light, wireless receiver, monitor and Hard disc recorder.

Here is a link showing an older XL-1 using the Anton/Bauer battery with a light.
