LANC Video Remotes

Libec Remote Control LIB-ZFC-5HD - $219 - in stock
The ZFC-5HD offers precise and variable zoom speed control available for LANC (Sony/Canon) and Panasonic cameras, controled by a selector switch. Equipped with a 2-step zoom speed control for LANC cameras. In addition, the ZFC-5HD is equipped with a focus control button for LANC and a focus dial for Panasonic cameras. Exclusively for LANC cameras, the ZFC-5HD has an on/off remote power switch function which allows your camera to power on/off remotely. This is ideal when shooting with a jib arm or crane. Can be clamped on various equipment: tripod pan handles, jib arm and a crane weight bars, stabilizers, monopods and other accessories. The end of the cable splits into two parts with 2.5mm submini-jack and 3.5mm mini-jack on each end. When using Panasonic cameras, simultaneous control of zoom and focus can be achieved by plugging 2.5mm and 3.5mm jacks into the zoom and focus terminals, respectively. When the remote terminal Ø3.5 (focus for Panasonic) is connected to the Panasonic cameras released after August 2009, manual mode is not available as the iris is fixed to the auto mode. To use the iris in the manual mode, please operate the focus on the camera without connecting the remote terminal Ø3.5.

Lightweight and compact, this unit has an outlet cable and can be clamped on tripod pan handles, monopods, stabilizers, and other such devices.

Zoom Remotes for Panasonic Camcorders

 

Varizoom VZ-Rock PZFI - $349 - call to check
Zoom/Focus/ Iris Control For Panasonic cameras with dual input.

Specifically designed for Panasonic cameras with dual input for zoom, focus, and iris control. This powerful combination offers precise control over these three camera functions. Operator may switch between auto and manual control for either focus or iris at anytime. Works on all camera supports, stabilizers, tripods, and jibs. The RockZFI utilizes a pressure-sensitive, side-to-side rocker switch like broadcast zoom controls. This rocker has a greater range of motion for a finer degree of zoom control than the throttle style zoom controls. Adjust the exposure or focus with a finger, smooth and quiet knobs provide easy operation while you compose your shots. Independent focus/iris knobs allow for two people to operate together for critical focus during moving shots or crane moves, imagine the possibilities! The body switches click into position, letting you watch the picture, not your hands.

Wide-sweep variable rocker for smooth, sustainable zooms
Low profile record/pause button
Unique dual knob adjustment
Body switches for manual/auto modes

Manfrotto's Clamp-On remote control unit promises real innovation in the field of HDSLR filming by circumventing the need for any physical contact between follow-focus equipment and the camera lens, instead wiring directly into the camera body to use the internal focus control systems. The advantages are obvious: lenses can be swapped easily without extra hardware or adjustment, nothing jolts the camera unexpectedly during follow-focus, one-man camera operation is easier, and control at a distance is as simple as extending the cable between the camera and the remote. The Clamp-On Remote is perfectly integrated into the SYMPLA system, fitting comfortably to the spacer element of a SYMPLA Adjustable Handle and allowing fingertip control of key camera functions without moving the hand from the grips, in turn making support more stable and secure.
