Question: Can the GX 7 Mark III be powered by something other than the battery when the USB-C port is connected to the computer as a webcam?
Is there a product or way to power the Mark III so the battery does not run out?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Might have to chalk this one up to an error on the Canon website?
We shall see how my Mark III reacts when the generic "dummy battery" power adapter gets here in a couple of days.
The Canon website is NOT in error!
I ordered this power adapter from Amazon: Glorich ACK-DC110 Replacement AC Power Adapter Kit for Canon PowerShot
It arrived today. I took just a few minutes from my busy day quickly check how it works for the PowerShot GX 7 Mark III.
It powers the camera while the battery compartment door is still open!
So, now I only have to worry about mounting the camera in a way that is stable while the battery compartment door is open to allow the cord to enter.

Hey just want to ask if this dummy battery from amazon for canon g7x mark iii works while streaming. Iam looking for dummy battery for 3 days and didnt find anything.
I'm not sure which dummy battery you are asking about. I am successful using the dummy battery mentioned in a previous post in this thread.
