    Vivitar VIV-RC-800 reviews

    8 Button Remote Control is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 40.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works with Canon XA10, G20 Yes, the remote will work with Canon XA10 and G20's, but there's a catch. For some reason the LANC connector doesn't sit correctly in the XA10 or G20. However, if you get the Varizoom VZ-EXTL10 10' extension cable and connect that to the camera, then the remote, it functions perfectly. Don't ask me why. I hope this helps a few people. Other than that, the unit let's us power on/off our remote camera's and control the zoom functions by simply hot swapping from one extension cable to another.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice inexpensive remote controller The Vivitar LANC remote for the Sony video camera works nicely right out of the box. All of the necessary functions such as Focus, Zoom and photo are just a thumb click away. The only thing I found to be a distraction is the zoom controller makes a clicking sound when it is depressed and would have been nice if it was a smooth rocker instead. However for the price it's perfect.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great remote, fantastic price! I can't say enough good about this remote. Finally, a remote that gives access to all the LANC features, even the ability to turn the camera on and off remotely. And, the remote is inexpensive! Yes, it's a bit cheaply made, but at this price you can stock a spare. The only real negative is that the buttons make an audible click sound, even the zoom rocker. This is not a good thing if you're recording sound from the camera close to the remote. For my application this is not a problem, but you should be aware of it if you're going to locate the remote close to the camera.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Handy little Lanc controller Ordered this for a Sony X70 after seeing some great comments and reviews on forums. It's handy and simple. Unpacked it, added a couple of converters I already had and it got to work right away. It didn't have to be sophisticated as I use Manfrotto MVR901's as well if I need them and I'm delighted with it. Will it still be working in 12 months? Who knows? but at the price, it won't break the bank and I'd buy another without hesitating and have nothing negative to say because of the price! Also got to mention the service from B&H Should be able to give 10***** Excellent

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works with Canon Vixia and RA-V1 adapter The remote serves our needs for church video as used with the Canon RA-V1 remote Adapter and Vixia HF M400. All 8 functions of the remote do not work perfectly but zoom and zoom speed control were the primary concerns along with the record function. On/Off is the function that did not work and we did not want to pay the exorbitant price of the Canon remote. As mentioned in other reviews the buttons are noisy but did not pick up on recording as used mounted to tripod in a church environment.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Does the job for low price. Vivitar 8 Button Remote ControlI got the Vivitar LANC control from B&H and was surprised how many of the functions work with the NX5U.Power will shut power on and off as long as the camcorder power switch is on. Don't forget the on camera switch when you shutting down.Record, focus and on screen (display) buttons all work as expected.Search appears to do nothing.Zoom has an adjustable fixed speed are a variable setting. In my short test, the variable speed starts out slow and after about 2-3 seconds the speed jumps to a higher speed.The mount is a spring clamp. It's strong enough, but a screw clamp would have been preferred. My case keep coming open at the top end away from the bottom screw. I'll see how it holds up.The unit has a 14 cable and includes a 4.5 A/V R adapter.For the price, $, it's not bad.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Control Cable Too Short I purchased one of these and it worked fine but after a couple of years the cable detached from the remote control and exposed the wires inside the control. I ordered another one to replace my old one but the new remote control cable was at least 4" shorter than my old remote control and it would not reach the camera from the pan handle like the old one. Very disappointed that they sell this with such a short cable for the remote control. I would not recommend this item.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does not work with the BMPCC... I saw some claims that this remote would work with the Black Magic Pocket Cinema Camera, but it does not.
