Hi Jack

Yes the regulator has just three connections ... one is a common ground (both input and output -ve are connected to it). The other two connections are +ve in and +ve out.

A diode is basically like a one-way valve, so in principle it can go in either cable to the camera ... provided it's connected the right way round! The band round the diode body (you can see it in my picture) shows the end that goes to -ve.

Good luck with yours!
