Sony RM-1BP Reviews

Works as advertised

I have purchased two other zoom remotes for my Sony Z280 before this one. They offered a totally variable zoom function--slow to fast--and this one does not. It has three settings--slow, medium and fast. The other remotes worked ok, but one of them already has a dead spot in the zoom if I work it slowly. Like other Sony products, this zoom remote works as promised, albeit within the limited parameters of a Sony product. In other words, this is reliable, workable unit if you accept that you have to work with the three settings. Setting #1 out to inrange: 4 seconds, Setting #2: 10 seconds, Setting #3: 30 seconds. The zoom speed is variable within these settings.

I've used these with my old Sony PXW-Z150's and I'm now using two with my FDR-AX700's. This unit is essential whenever I'm using my crane. It's never let me down.

So Much Easier

Coming from a traditional broadcast background, this was crucial from a user perspective. This controller made our broadcasts look so much smoother by making operations 10x easier.

Love it!

Everything works as it should. It is touch sensitive for the zoom controls. That's perfect for what we need.

Solid remote but one thing missing

I really like this remote but wish it had a dial like the old Sonys did. I would be nice to have more than 3 options. But other than that very solid and happy with it.

Great Service. Excellent Product.

I'm looking into this for my FS-7 with Sony E4/PZ 18-110 g OSS lens. Anybody use the RM-1BP with this setup? If so, is it a perfectly smooth zoom, start to stop?
Asked by: James
It may not work. If the lens is not a servo lens, it won't work. The RM1BP works with the FS5 kit lens, 18-105.

does this work with the sony AX-700?
Asked by: James
As per Sony's website, that port is "For connecting the camcorder and a peripheral. You can control the camcorder, such as recording movies, with that device." Having said that, if that port isn't a 2.5" (micro?) port, the remote Commander might not work. The RM1BP unit connects to the camera's LANC port. I don't know if the AX-700 "REMOTE jack" label on its body refers to a LANC port.

Will this work with the Sony FDR -AX53?
Asked by: Everett M.
No it will not. The AX53 does not have a LANC port instead it has "Multi-Terminal". Consider this as an alternative: Sony RM-VPR1 Remote Commander with Multi-Terminal Cable BH #SORMVPR1 • MFR #RM-VPR

I use a Sony PXW -x70. Other LANC controllers toggle between Focus and Zoom settings (for use one at a time.) Will this unit allow both focus and zoom with the x70?
Asked by: James
The Sony RM1BP Remote Commander does not have a switch for focus or Zoom so both controls would be active when in use. Please note the Sony X70 requires adapters to connect to LANC controllers. Add both adapters to allow connection to Lanc controllers B&H # VAVZAVLANC and B&H # SOVMCAVM1
