The Manfrotto 521LX LANC Camcorder Remote Control has been designed to create an innovative interaction with camcorders that have Lanc controls (Sony Canon) The small device attaches easily to standard handles and the cable of the 521LX ports to your Sony or Canon camcorder's LANC input.
The Manfrotto 521LX can control any camera parameter that is addressable via LANC. The remote control features five user-programmable buttons, a power button (which can power on/off the camera), a bi-dimensional thumb joystick, a thumbwheel for control of the LCD menu, a zoom speed potentiometer, a USB port for firmware updates and a focus control switch to toggle between auto and manual focus.
The multifunction soft thumb joystick offers precise control over zoom, iris and/or focus. For smooth ramping, several intermediate adjustment speeds sit between the minimum and maximum. The thumb joystick moves horizontally and vertically, so two functions can be assigned to it at any one time.
