Product Highlights
  • Allows Lens Control on Sony Camcorders
  • 3.5" Female to A/V Remote Terminal

Varizoom's VZ-AV/LANC adapter cable allows you to add Varizoom lens control devices (for example, the Stealth LX, Rock LE, and Pro-L) to Sony Handycams that have an A/V Remote terminal instead of LANC input. Add remote zoom and focus capability to your shots by plugging the Varizoom's connector into the 3.5" mini female end of the adapter, and the other end of the adapter into your camcorder's A/V Remote terminal.

Compatible cameras include Sony HDR-HC9, DCR-HC52, HDR-SR11, HDR-UX20, DCR-DVD610, DCR-DVD710, HDR-SR12, HDR-SR10, DCR-SR220, DCR-SR45, DCR-SR65, DCR-SR85, SCR-DVD810, DCR-HC62, DCR-SR220D, HDR-SR10D, HDR-TG1, HDR-CX12, DCR-DVD910, HDR-UX10, and HDR-FX7.

    Sony does not guarentee the operation of remote devices not made by Sony using the Sony camcorder av/remote jack. My Varizoom VZ Rock (lanc) zoom controller will not work with my HDR-CX760 camcorder with either a Lybec or a Varizom av/lanc cable converter plugged into the camcorder's av/remote jack.

      Comments about VariZoom Mini Audio/Video to LANC Converter Cable:

      Varizoom Mini Audio/Video to Lanc Converter Cable to connect with a consumer Sony HDR-CX360 video camera and to use specifically with purchased Manfrotto RC Pan Bar EX Remote Control for LANC Cameras comes mounted with a standard pan bar and is compatible with LANC (Sony and Canon) cameras. The external remote variable speed zoom control mounted on a tripod. The more you turn the the zoom(focus) control the faster the zoom will go. Works zooming in or out with a great deal of control. There is a separate knob that works as a speed limiter. The camera was not on the list of cameras, all functions WORKED, worked well and with great operator control for the zoom. I believe my camera does not have a remote focus, therefor not checked for this function. Item used for capturing automotive race action. No negatives as far as operation. Items packed well, timely shipping.

                        I have a Sony VCT-D68RM Tripod with a remote in the handle that I couldn't use with my new Sony HDR-XR500V. This adapter cable allowed to plug that camera into the LANC connector on the Tripod. Perfectly simple!

                        One of the reasons I chose a Sony for my new HD Camcorder is for the built-in LANC control. Unfortunately Sony doesn't include the dedicated LANC jack on their new camcorders but built it in to the multi-purpose AV port. This cable allows me to access that part of the port and works as it should. My only beef is the price, a cable like this should really be under 10 bucks but I suppose it's somewhat of a specialty item so they probably don't make that many.
