Preparing for Use with PC
Keep the following battery considerations in mind as you use the camera
IMPORTANT: Do not attempt to remove the battery; it is not a cus-
tomer serviceable part.
The DCS 465 Camera Back incorporates a single, rechargeable nickel
hydride battery that powers the camera back.
In typical shooting situations, a fully-charged battery provides power
for up to 150 frames.
You can operate the camera back while connected to the supplied AC
battery charger/adapter, or you can recharge the battery with the
adapter and then use the camera back in the field without the adapter.
The adapter will run the camera back continuously while it is charg-
ing the battery.
If you are using the camera back in an environment in which a power
outlet is available, we recommend that you operate the camera back
while connected to the AC battery charger/adapter as described
Refer to chapter 9 for information on the effect of temperature ex-
tremes on battery operation.
You should charge the battery for at least one hour before using the
camera back for the first time, and thereafter on a regular basis as needed.
Charging the battery for at least one hour will ensure that you begin
shooting with a fully charged battery, and that you obtain the most images
