    to the operator as part of pre-flight checks.

Compatibility Notes

  • This product comes with 2 choices of right-angled connector for the camera.
    Please ensure you have 20mm clearance for the plug type ordered.
  • Sony camcorders before 2014 are compatible with sister products supporting LANC.
  • Zoom speeds achievable on camcorders are slower than cameras.
    We're sorry but the speeds available are set by the camera, not our devices.

For basic shutter control only you may want to consider 71M / 21M. or 032 / 039
