Does anyone know if this connecter is suitable for a D800? I am currently using batteries for studio work. A constant power supply would be more convenient. My local shop said D800 doesn't have one available to suit. I saw this Nikon EP-5B Power Supply Connector for D7000.
Or is there any other direct power source, rather than charging batteries?

B&H list the Nikon EH-5b AC power adaptor for use with the D800. It also shows that the EP-5B connector is required to connect the EH-5b to the camera.

Not meant to be a definitive answer, but more so a starting point for additional research and confirmation.

Definitely is.
I use mine (modified cable) with external battery (made myself) to power the camera all the time.

thanks for the response. I'll chase up my local dealer and see if I can sort something out.
