Specialised zoom and focus remotes can be mounted on the pan bar of your tripod, providing you with remotely controlled camcorder operation.
Tripod Mounted Camera Remotes
The remote controller which connects to the LANC, Remote, 8 pin or 12 pin terminal is dependant on the manufacturer of your camera or lens. Whether you have a Sony, JVC, Panasonic, Canon or Fujinon Proactive has a zoom or focus demand to suit.
Features include users to select fixed zoom speeds or a variable setting that makes the zoom controller pressure sensitive. In addition, the operator can also control focus.
Remote Zoom & Focus Control
A zoom or focus demand is a great way of standing back from your camera, thus enabling you to concentrate on the shooting environment in front of you and decreasing vibrations from the camera that could be picked up through the microphone.
Proactive stocks a wide range of controllers from the Varizoom VZ-Rock to the Manfrotto MN521 Lanc Remote, plus many more.
