    Hi there

    I have lots of adaptors for various gadgets and don't really want to buy
    another one, especially seeing that Canon's 3volt adaptor for the cx7330 is
    50-70 Australian dollars locally. (Model 125 6379)

    I can tell it's centre positive and 3 volts. How many amps is your adaptor
    if you have one? (My current adaptors don't provide many milliamps.)

    I may end up buying an adaptor but would like to try not to first.

    Thanks in advance

    I recently checked the requirements for an old Canon S20 which
    used a 6 volt battery. The specifications called for 0.65 amps for
    playback of images and 1.5 amps for normal picture taking
    operations. It probably could manage at 1.0 amps if not for the
    need to recharge the flash capacitor. All things being equal, a 3
    volt power supply would have to provide twice the current that a 6
    volt supply would, but the CSX7330 may not be as power hungry
    (despite its small size) as the old S20.

    You'll probably have to get a larger adapter than your current(!)
    ones unless you want to use the adapter mainly for playback or for
    transferring files to a computer. But there's no need to pay the
    inflated OEM prices. Doesn't Australia have the equivalent of Radio
    Shack? I've even seen large, inexpensive power supplies (supplied
    with multiple tips) being sold in pharmacy/convenience stores such
    as Rite Aid, CVS, Walgreens, etc.

    Thankyou both very much for your time and saving my cash.

    And we do have Radio Shack down here but they call themselves 'Tandy'.

    You're welcome. I'm quite familiar with Tandy as they used to go
    by that name at least as far back as the 1960's, when they were more
    of a craft store, selling lots of leather goods and leather-working
    tools.

    On Tue, 14 Feb 2006 04:24:12 -0500, -- . -- . -- -- . -- folks,
    Strange, but as I read this I was listening to a recording of an
    old Jean Shepherd show on the radio where he said at least a couple
    of times "I'm not an old man!" I remember seeing many ads for the
    old Allied catalogs, but I did my electronics shopping at Lafayette
    (within walking distance), which also had a hefty catalog. I think
    they disappeared in the early sixties. The first thing I bought
    from them (sometime in the fifties) was a simple crystal radio kit.
    Soon after, a morse code oscillator kit complete with key and
    horrible Cannon earphones. Who's old, old timer? :)

    Charles Tandy bought Radio Shack in 1963.

    In 1971 when Tandy bought Allied. They sold it in the 1990's. I thought
    it was great when they acquired Allied, as they sent out ad flyers with
    a "free dollar" to celebrate the "wedding." I collected a bunch of those.
