How does the optional AC-LS5K power adapter connect to the camera?

Applicable Products and Categories of This Article

The camera does not have a DC input jack. Therefore, to connect the AC-LS5K to the camera, a VMC-MD3 Multi-Use Terminal cable must be used. The AC-LS5K power adapter connects to the VMC-MD3 cable, then the VMC-MD2 cable connects to the multi-connector jack on the camera.

IMPORTANT: The camera can be powered using both the AC-LS5K and VMC-MD3, but the battery pack cannot be charged in the camera. The battery charger supplied with the camera must be used to recharge the battery pack.

NOTE: Check the Sony® Store website or call (800) 488-7669 for availability information about the VMC-MD3 cable.
