Compatibility Notes

  • This product comes with a right-angled connector for the camera.
    Please ensure you have 20mm clearance for the gentWIRE-MULTI plug.
  • Sony camcorders before 2014 are compatible with sister product gentWIRE-LANC.
  • Zoom speeds achievable on camcorders are slower than cameras.
    We're sorry but the speed is set by the camrea, not our device.
