Our good friends at Switronix are announcing this new power cable for the Nikon camera line.

We've used the Canon version of this cable on several occasions and it is really quite simple and easy to use and an overall joy – since you connect to a p-tap battery and you've got very long life for your camera.

While not sexy nor visually exciting, these are highly recommended!
