Magnus VC-20-SCP overview

  • 1Description

The Magnus VC-20-SCP LANC Zoom Controller & Sony AVR Adapter Cable Kit from B&H includes a remote record/zoom controller and an adapter cable for Sony consumer LANC capable camcorders.

The controller attaches to tripod pan handles via a built-in mounting clamp and allows you to control zoom at different speeds. It uses a pressure-sensitive zoom rocker switch that responds to the force you press it with. The adapter cable has an AVR connector and allows you to use the controller with Sony consumer camcorders.

  • Magnus VC-20-SCP Zoom Controller for Canon, Panasonic, Sony

    The Magnus VC-20-SCP Zoom Controller for Canon, Panasonic, Sony provides record and zoom control for all LANC-equipped Canon, Panasonic, and Sony camcorders. An included 22.5" long control cable connects into the controller on one end and into the camcorder's LANC port on the other. You can also use this controller with Sony consumer cameras via an optional Magnus ACM-SAVR AVR adapter cable.

    A built-in mounting clamp allows attaching the controller to your tripod pan handle so you can zoom and pan with one hand and achieve a fluid look. The clamp opens up to 1.25" and also fits jibs, tubes, pipes, and bars. Zoom is regulated by a pressure-sensitive rocker switch that produces faster or slower control depending on how hard or gentle you press it. For tape-based cameras, a REC/RET button works together with a REC/RET switch to let you return to the last record position.

Magnus VC-20-SCP reviews

VC-20-SCP LANC Zoom Controller & Sony AVR Adapter Cable Kit is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Zoom contorl Trying to reply to a question about this controller. Do you think this would control zoom and record on a Sony rx10 ii ? and my answer would be . NO. that type of Zoom on those type of cameras do not allow for a automatic zoom. the zooms are normally manual. and dont provide for that feature. I use a lot of sony video body based cameras and this zoom controll works great. you may have to get an adapter depending on the model. but no, wont work with the sony RX10ii.- Monte

Rated 5 out of 5 by from VC-20-SCP Review I have long wanted a knob for zoom control, and this item is close to a knob. I use it on a Canon VIXIA G40, and I didn't need the adapter cable that came with it. The controller has a switch for Sony (S) or Panasonic (P), and the controller works on the S setting on this particular camera. Glad I got it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! My wife and I shoot weddings occasionally, and we needed a way to smoothly zoom in and out during the ceremony without camera shake. I confess that I had my doubts about this unit given the price. However, having used it on a Canon G30 and also the Sony VX2100 backup camera, I could not be more pleased. Absolutely smooth and progressive, you can ease into a push-in so slowly that the viewer will not be aware of it. Very gradual progression of zoom speed, and totally reliable, it will be a part of every shoot in the future for me. I will be buying another for the Sony my wife uses. By the way, the Sony adapter may be necessary for some Sony cameras, but the VX2100 works perfectly with the standard connecting cable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well Works very well. The variable pressure zoom is perfect, and it has a switch for s - Sony and p - Panasonic, which are the 2 video cameras I have, and the switch works as expected. The record button works fine, but you do need to push it for a millisecond. If you hit it for a short time, it may not start recording. This may be the camera though, just something to be aware of. Overall, really great for simple remote zoom and great cost.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from kinda big but works great Well I haven't used the zoom controller on a shoot yet, but, from studio work with a zc I know they can make video much easier on the eyes with slow zooms, I got it for an nx-30 the rocker switch on the camera is ok but not great, this allows total control and it has quite a wide range, the rocker is big enough to easily maintain a speed. The unit itself seems too big, but for the price, I wont complain. I need to keep working at it to really feel comfortable with it, but I know there wont be any herky jerky zooms on my next shoot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! I needed a variable zoom controller for my wedding work. Although I was concerned about how the zoom would actually work, I shot my first wedding with this device last weekend. I was pleased to find that the device does support the full range of zoom speed on my Canon h-g30 video camera. More important, it lets you roll into the zoom very gradually and vary it gently and smoothly. It actually works much better than the rocker zoom control on the camera. In a wedding, there is no chance for a retake; it has to be right the first time, and this device worked perfectly. I also tried it on my older Sony VX2100 and it worked MUCH better than the rocker on the Sony. You will not beat this controller for the price (and probably not at any price).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent On my Sony NX5 works like a charm. Easy to make smooth zooms. I highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as advertised Works as advertised - just be careful as there is a small slide switch to flip between Panasonic and Sony
