Will this work on a Canon C100 II?

Will this work on a Canon C100 II?
Asked by: Aaron
This product is specifically for the Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM Lens. That lens itself will work well on the C100 II. So yes, if you are using this lens with the C100 Mark II it will work. https://bhpho.to/36psUSw

I have a video tripod. What Adapter do I need to mount my camera on the tripod. Because with the zoom control on the lens l can’t use my quick release plate.
Asked by: Duncan
I have a camera tripod, and there is no problem with the quick release plate. So, another option would be to get a second tripod, though I recognize this would be an added expense. Doing a quick search online, there are some adapters. I saw a "flexi-tilt" head that may work and there are also some sliding plates that B&H has. Obviously it will be dependent on your model and what you can use on your stand to replace or serve as an adapter for your camera.

question

Does this have to be removed to mount camera to a tripod or gimbal? Will the Canon Connect zoom feature work with the 77d?
Asked by: Robb
To the first question: No, no need to be removed to attach the camera to a tripod.Not familiar with the 77D but this works directly with the lenses not the camera.
