yeah you should be able to get the power straight from the camera, that is if your just running the mic into the camera. Now if your useing a dat or something similar, then you will need a phantom power box. And you can buy those at any music store like guitar center or Mars Music. Or go online to, You should be able to find it there. Hope this helps.
