Thank you for the update, @thatsodd. Yes, you can connect the camera to a power pack while being used, to allow for continuous recording. Since recording in 4K consumes higher storage space than other resolution settings, please make sure that you have enough SD capacity to accommodate extended recordings. This article presents the biggest SD cards that can be used for each camera. Best regards!
