The RC Clamp LANC Zoom/Focus Remote from Manfrotto is for use with LANC equipped video cameras, and can be clamped onto a tripod pan handle or other tubes with a 0.5 to 0.9" diameter using a quick-lock fastening clamp. A single rocker is selectable between zoom or focus, while a knob on the side allows you to dial in a specific zoom/focus speed. Alternatively, you can achieve pressure-sensitive variable speed control by placing the knob at its highest setting.

In addition zoom and focus control, the RC Clamp features a record start/stop button, a camera power button, and an autofocus on/off button. Plus there a button to reverse the directionality of the rocker. LEDs indicate whether the remote is set to zoom or focus mode and tell you if the camera is recording. A 55" coiled LANC cable is included.

Compatibility
Works with most cameras that feature LANC inputs. LANC is most common on Sony and Canon camcorders, but is occasionally found on other makes - this will not work on Panasonic even though the physical connector is the same. For a complete list of tested compatible cameras please refer to the Manfrotto website

          Hands down best for the Canon G30

          By SurveyArcher

          Comments about Manfrotto RC Clamp LANC Zoom/Focus Remote:

          I had originally purchased a varizoom LANC to go with my Canon Vixia HF G30. It would not work focus, and it broke. I recently got this one and it is so much easier and now on/off, zoom, record and focus are all at my fingertip. This is huge when filming wild game without movement. Effortless on the push button and the wheel to adjust zoom is the cats meow. No more lightning fast zoom in the heat of the moment. I really wish I had bought this to begin with.

            Comments about Manfrotto RC Clamp LANC Zoom/Focus Remote:

            This remote, when paired with powered lenses, is even better than having a follow focus (and cheaper)!

            I was trying to figure out how to pull focus while my camera is on a Gyro Gimbal (Letus Helix). I could not use a manual follow-focus because the camera is constantly turning and remote follow-focus systems were bulky, complex, and expensive. (Not to mention often requiring a second operator.)

            When I came across this remote, I thought it was too simple and easy to be true – I thought that there had to be a catch. But there was no catch!

            I use the remote with my BlackMagic Pocket Cinema Camera and several powered Panasonic Lumix lenses. The remote allows me to stop and start recording and, crucially, adjust the lens focus using the thumb rocker. (Zoom, AutoFocus, and Power control do not work for the BlackMagic Pocket, but manual focus control is the key feature for me and works perfectly!)

            If you want to be the one-man band, shooting by yourself on a budget, grab this remote, a powered lens, and a 5" monitor. Turn on Focus Peaking and dial in your focus whether your camera is on a tripod, slider, gimbal, etc. You'll be unstoppable!

                Comments about Manfrotto RC Clamp LANC Zoom/Focus Remote:

                I got one of these after purchasing and returning a MVR901EPLA (the bigger version that replaces the pan handle on a tripod head). The big one doesn't fit on the Manfrotto 701 head I purchased for a smaller camcorder, so this is my only option. This model probably has 1-2 less features, but it's compact and usable on any tripd head or could even be handheld.

                I used this model on a Canon XA-10 camera attached to a 701 head and it worked quite nicely. There is a dial on the side of this remote to limit the zoom speed, so you can dial it in to adjust for your needs. The bottom tip of this remote is a thumb rocker that has a lot of rotation, so you can be very precise with either zoom or focus if desired. The remote has a record start/stop button as well as a camera on/off button. Also has a button to toggle from controlling zoom to focus. I am still not sure what the [AF] button does -- there is very little useful documentation on these remotes.
