Correct, so you plug that into the camera, the other end goes into the female end of the USBA on the adapter that I linked to. the existing old v3 wire goes into the microUSB end of the adapter I linked to.
I had typed an answer based on me mis-reading something you had said. I then realized your comment was about something else and my answer made no sense. Unfortunately you can’t delete a message on this forum, only edit it…
Thats what I’m trying NOT to do (replace the cable). It runs thru an inner and outer wall. So I’m hoping there is a plug adapter that allows me to use the current power cord (which is already thru the wall) that I can attach and use the new power cord (for the V3 PAN) with the current cord (regular cam V3)
Wow. I’ve never see those. So with this I just used the plug that came with the V3PAN then connect the cable that came with it to this one which will in turn, plug into the camera. Correct?
Wish list for longer cable:
So where can I find this adapter? Or did I miss that?
I gave you an Amazon link few posts above. Feel free to scroll up.
Again I’m confuse. The plug on the cable for the BRAND NEW v3 pan camera is 90 degrees. I’m wanting to make sure the the play that is like most other cameras (straight) won’t get in the way of panning on the new v3 pan camera
You need to use the cable that comes with the PanCam V3 to connect to the camera. Then, as @habib stated use the adapter to connect the PanCam V3 cable to your existing power cable you are using with your regular V3 cameras. The adapter converts the micro usb connector on your original V3 cable to usb A so you can then connect the PanCam V3 cable to the other side of the adapter.
Sorry bout that
PERFECT! I don’t recall him giving a part number or where to get one.
I went back up and saw the link to Amazon. They arent available. Bummer
Excellent, however they are unavailable
It looks like you can get them on Newegg.com
But, it ships from China. So it may take a while to be delivered.
These are available. You just have to do a bit of research
To answer the question if the Cam V3 cable will work at all in the Pan V3: yes, but there are things to address.
I just tested using the Pan V3 using a mounting post screwed into the camera base and a regular V3 power cable. See pictures below. I held it upside down, but it would work any way it was mounted. I was able to pan the camera the full 360 degrees with no issues. I did have to remove the little tightening wheel to get it to fit with the power cable.
Also, keep in mind that if you mount it upside down outside, the weatherproofing is compromised and most likely the warranty will be voided.
Hope this helps.
Thanks @habib, I’ve copied your part type (USB A female to USB micro female adapter) and will search using that. Do I need to look for any additional specs other than B 5-pin, yadda yadda?
Boy, you went all out this this! The info (and time spent) is greatly appreciated.
