It will be far easier to pack away than a softbox cube.

Have you tried packing a softbox ?

It is one of life's challenges .. do a search for YouTube videos.

Someone asked me if I could take some pictures of the power plug for an SX130IS.  They aren't the best pictures, but can be seen here -> http://www.achillies.com/CHDK_Files/powerplug.htm

The plug is *almost* the same as that of a Kyocera TXTVL10103 or Audiovox CNR4 power adapter.

New to CHDK just realized that my ixus 125 hs (elph 110) needs more power for timelapsing.
So, using what lying around 10 meters from my sofa  :), i did this cheap, dirty , but working dummy battery.
In pictures below an old vhs plastic case, a tiny metal strip, super glue to join togheter 3 rectangular pieces of plastic.
The little socket was cannibalized from an old electronic appliance.
At home, external power comes out from a 4,5 Vs/2A AC-DC adapter.




from the cheap & dirty saga
