    I have acquired a Sony Handycam VX-1000 (professional mini DV).

    I know it's old, but I still would like to use it. I have the battery charger that plugs into the wall, but I am missing the cable that goes from camera into the battery charger (for continuous camera power).

    I can't find a power cable for this anywhere. I've called places, scoured the internet, Ebay, etc.

    A photo of the port on camera included here.

    Any ideas where this cable can be found?

    Thanks so much!

  2. Well it must be indicated SOMEWHERE what the pin out is (it kind of says so on the camera already) and what the power expectation is (5V? 12V?) ... any electrician/electronics expert should be able to provide that...

    This is a specific form of plug I haven't found yet. It does show some image and the "DC IN." Yeah, I'm not sure what to do about it just yet, so yeah, maybe I should reach out to an electrician.

    Thanks.
