      For an inexpensive pan/tilt product, this is a great unit. We have three of them at our church.
      The unit this one replaced worked well for about six years before it malfunctioned. The pan/tilt head this remote operates is still working great, as are the other two complete setups. We use the cameras mounted on these pan/tilt heads at every service, including special events, which equates to approximately 180 to 190 times annually. The MP-101 is an excellent buy. The remote was inexpensive to replace. You wouldn't use the MP-101 in a professional setting; it's a bit unrefined with it's jerky "too fast" motion even on the slowest speed, but for our purposes, it works fine. You can't beat the price.

      Now I'm finally able to control my pan and tilt head, this remote is a great companion my only wishes be for it to have a programmable timer and the ability to slow it down a bit more for timelapse etc..

            Comments about Bescor Remote Control - for MP-101 Motorized Pan Head:

            This is exactly the same as the controller that shipped with the motorized head, so if yours broke due to the cord being too short (as mine did, the controller got stuck on the jib as it was moving and...), then buy the extension as this will not hold up any better than the original. That said, works perfectly out of the box as you might imagine.

              The original one that came with MP-101 lost the ability to pan/tilt slowly - it could only operate at top speed. It would be nice if Bescor added a switch on the remote to chose between Auto and Manual.

                Church Video Remote control. approx once per week for one hour.
                Likes: light weight, speed control, one hand operation
                dislikes: cable is too stiff, round dial gets loose and twists. That is why I bought a new one. I hope it will last 5 years or more too.

                    The MP-101 is a fantastic piece of gear to own. Doing live webcam streaming with the Motorized Pan Head and this remote is what differentiates between an average amateur performance and a slick professional presentation. This is a MUST HAVE.

                          The original remote that came with my MP-101 pan tilt head lost its ability to pan left. After buying a new one, which worked on about 10 shoots, the ability to pan left has once again disappeared. This is the only wired remote out there for this pan tilt head, so I guess you are stuck needing a spare in case one of them breaks.

                            This unit works as advertised. I would enjoy using it more if the pan/tilt control was a small knob instead of a disk. It would also be more usable if it had an available clamp for attaching it to a tripod's pan bar or to the weight bar of a jib crane.
