Hi

I have just got a Beaulieu 6008S camera, there is no battery holder, but apparently it works.

I want to use it and need to know what kind of plug I need to power the camera via the 9 volt socket. Would any 9 volt transformer/adaptor work?

I am also thinking of connecting a six AA batieries to the terminals in the handgrip where the battery holder sits, but looking through the handgrip I can't tell which terminal is positive and which is negative.

Can anyone help?

Thanks

Some of the Beaulieu's regulate the voltage. The voltage going to the zoom lens may be a different amount than what goes to the camera motor versus what goes to the light meter. I would suggest doing a google search under images and see if there are any visuals out there that show how to wire power to the camera.

It just needs 9 volts and plenty ampere from the batteries or from an external powersupply.
There is no half voltage taken from the batteries like with the 4008s



The manual is spread so much who does need a paid download?

Hi

Thanks, I have found that manual for free, it's more difficult than other camera repair/service manuals but it's very helpful.
