How does this work? Do you just connect it to the camera? If so which input and can this be mounted to remotely control the camera while on the crane?
For this controller to work, your camera must have a LANC input jack, also called Control-L. It's most common on Sony and Canon camcorders. If your camera has a LANC input, you can use it in conjuction with a camera crane using the 12' LANC extension cable.
Will this be compatible with the Canon VIXIA HF R50 camcorder? We just installed one in our Church for live streaming and are looking for a remote zoom control. Thanks.
Unfortunately it doesn't appear that the Canon Vixia HF R50 camcorder has a LANC or Control L input. This would be a 2.5mm jack that's used to control the zoom and record functions.
