Looking for one of these please. Please pm

... just another middle-aged guy with a hobby. I have an extreme macro learning site at extreme-macro.co.uk - Pentax-centric, your feedback and comments would be appreciated!

Hi !

I'm also looking for such an adaptor.
Can't find one on a webstore ... all sold out or not available anymore !
And when I find one, it's incredibly expensive !

If someone knows a webstore where I can buy one, I would be so much grateful. Or maybe somebody who doesn't need this adaptor ?

Thanks !

I've seen sites with schematics for building your own, belive the voltage is 8.5v, I think the socket is proprietary to Pentax but a plug was available from Farnell (if they still exist) Good Luck

Not sure if any of this is helpful ?

Canon CA-570 AC power adapter ($7.98 with free shipping at ebay) has the same characteristics as D-AC50:
Input Voltage: 100V-240V AC (50-60Hz)
Output Voltage: 8.4V
Amperage: 2A

A little googling and I found compatible plug MQ172-3SA-CV(50) Digi-Key Part Number H10485-ND (center pin is +V and shield is GND) (only $2.99).
