Power supplying options

There is a possibility to supply power to the camera directly from PC without the need to use a power supply.
If you have a Firewire connector on your PC motherboard, you can use, for example, this Firewire=>12V cable:

If you don’t - you can install a Firewire Adapter Card and again use the same cable.
Alternatively, you can search for a similar cable for eSata – they should also have 12V on the connector (pin12-13)
