But the inductor needed would be very large, so I don't think this is a practical solution.
1. What is the critical spec on DC Choke Filters in my situation? Is the amperage what's important here? Does 50mA vs. 2A matter?
2. What allows it to sustain the current longer? a bigger Henry rating?
3. is it going to be wired as shown in the image below by the green dots or red dots?
4. I CAN put an inductor in series with the camera. Should I do that instead of a choke filter? If so, what would the specs need to be of the inductor? isn't a choke and and inductor the same thing?
It blanks out for about a second or less.
