Does anyone know what the external battery connector on the grey canon Scoopic is called or where I could find one? It has 4 pins but it's clearly not XLR

If you're referring to the original Scoopic 16, it's a Hirose connector part number RM12WBP-4S(71).
Digikey has it as part number HR1793-ND. The cable clamp is sold separately.

Thanks so much! You wouldn't happen to know the part number for the clamp? I can't seem to find the right one. I'm very new to this

Once again, thank you! So now the trick would be connecting it to a cable and power source. Is it as easy as just removing whatever the connection is on the external pack and replacing it with this one?

The cable clamp is available in 4 types accordong to the diameter in millimeters of the cable used.
Hirose # RM12WBP-CP(x)(71)
Replace x with either 4, 5, 6 or 7
Digikey # HR1800-ND thru HR1804-ND

Refer to catalog page 429

As for the connector on the battery pack side, 4pin XLR (male) is the standard.

Hey, Jean-Louis,

Can I tap your encyclopedic lore and ask what is the spec for the stepped 2 pin connector for the ACL ergonomic handgrip.  I'll put a separate thread on it so that the categorisation makes it easy to find for others later..

 

Cheers,

Gregg (Gregoire).

I'm not 100% sure but I think it's a very early LEMO connector. I can look it up.
