  • Can Be Used as SYMPLA Hand Grip

The Manfrotto SYMPLA Deluxe Remote Control for Canon DSLRs wires by USB cable right into the firmware of a Canon DSLR and allows over a dozen camera controls including control of aperture, ISO, shutter speed, and focus direction. It also features an LCD screen that indicates information such as aperture and color temperature. (Please click on "Specifications" tab for full lists of controls / indicators.)

The advantages of using the Remote include easy lens swaps (since no follow-focus is attached to the lens), jolt-free focusing, and control from a distance. Distance can be extended more and more by simply extending the cable between the camera and the Remote. The Remote in such case would be used hand-held or in various alternative configurations like attached to video head pan bars.

The Remote can also be used as one of the hand grips of a SYMPLA rig, meaning that one person can hold and control the rig all alone.

    Comments about Manfrotto Deluxe Remote Control for Canon DSLRs:

    It sounds like a breakthrough, electronic remote directly controlling your DSLR. And indeed, it does. But it is only a start and needs some upgrades.
    First the pro's: Start/stop button under your thumb is a big advantage.
    Adjusting white balance while shooting even so. Controlling your focus with that same handle needs exercise. Twisting the handle too fast generates noise from the focus engine. But still the big advantage is too be able to operate your controls, without losing your grip.
    The Cons: The menu is complicated. The fist Con, is that you have to enter a menu before you can control anything. So that needs visual attention, which we need elsewhere at that time. Due to tat system it is not possible to use two controls at the same time, or change fast between controls. You have to deal with the menu first. The last CON is the aperture control. I can only activate this in automatic mode in the camera, the same as focus control. But unlike the focus does, the aperture control stays in automatic, so what you're doing is correcting the automatic aperture. I hope that this is my mistake, but I cannot find proper directions in the user manual.
