It's the output voltage that you need to look for. AC in is 240v, but the output DC to the camera will vary. You need to make sure it's DC 7.9 V exactly, and anything larger than 1.4A. The amps are how much the unit will draw. If you were to use a 1.0A supply, you will fry the power supply. 1.5A will work just fine, same with 2.0A, etc...

As long as the power supply is exactly DC 7.9V and at least 1.4A, your camera will work just fine.
