Sony's RM-30BP Remote Controller features a compact form and can control most of the functions of your compatible NX5R, FS7 (v4.0), or FX6 camera, as well as a slew of other Sony cameras and camcorders. The remote enables control of the one-push auto, manual focus, iris, and zoom of your lens. It also allows you to control the recording/display functions of your camera, as well as shutter speed and white balance adjustment. You can assign six buttons on the controller and control the functions and playback of up to three cameras, individually or simultaneously.

The remote incorporates an adjustment knob that can be set to control your camera's focus, iris, or electronic ND selection (if your camera features electronic ND). At the bottom of the unit is a zoom rocker with a protective bar to help prevent accidental activation. You can daisy-chain together two RM-30BP units, allowing either remote to control your camera. You can also connect the remote to a Sony MCX-500, allowing for that switcher to control up to three cameras.

Status LEDs
A green status display on the unit indicates the condition of the connected and selected cameras. The unit also incorporates red/green record LEDs for each of the three cameras you may be connected to.

  • Iris: Please note that the rotation and speed of the iris adjustment will vary depending on the camcorder being used. You can change the direction of the iris knob if you wish.
Zoom Rocker

Connection Ports
  • Camera: The remote features three camera ports, allowing you to control up to three cameras either individually or simultaneously. Additional cables, not included, are required for this configuration.
  • The option connector enables connecting the RM-30BP to an MCX-500.

Can this be used in conjunction with the RM1BP, ...

Can this be used in conjunction with the RM1BP, with the 30BP providing remote iris away from the camera while the operator uses the 1 BP zoom rocker and focus locally?
Asked by: Anonymous
Since both remotes would require a wired LANC connection to the camera, and the Sony cameras only have a single LANC input, would first have to connect the RM1BP to the Sony RM-30BP Wired Remote Controller, and then connect the Sony RM-30BP Wired Remote Controller to the Sony camera to connect both remotes to the camera.
