Manfrotto MVR901ECLA overview

  • 1Description

The RC Clamp LANC Zoom/Focus Remote from Manfrotto is for use with LANC equipped video cameras, and can be clamped onto a tripod pan handle or other tubes with a 0.5 to 0.9" diameter using a quick-lock fastening clamp. A single rocker is selectable between zoom or focus, while a knob on the side allows you to dial in a specific zoom/focus speed. Alternatively, you can achieve pressure-sensitive variable speed control by placing the knob at its highest setting.

In addition zoom and focus control, the RC Clamp features a record start/stop button, a camera power button, and an autofocus on/off button. Plus there a button to reverse the directionality of the rocker. LEDs indicate whether the remote is set to zoom or focus mode and tell you if the camera is recording. A 55" coiled LANC cable is included.

Works with most cameras that feature LANC inputs. LANC is most common on Sony and Canon camcorders, but is occasionally found on other makes - this will not work on Panasonic even though the physical connector is the same. For a complete list of tested compatible cameras please refer to the Manfrotto website

    Manfrotto MVR901ECLA reviews

    RC Clamp LANC Zoom/Focus Remote is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 15.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hands down best for the Canon G30 I had originally purchased a varizoom LANC to go with my Canon Vixia HF G30. It would not work focus, and it broke. I recently got this one and it is so much easier and now on/off, zoom, record and focus are all at my fingertip. This is huge when filming wild game without movement. Effortless on the push button and the wheel to adjust zoom is the cats meow. No more lightning fast zoom in the heat of the moment. I really wish I had bought this to begin with.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent build quality but not most useful design I purchased this LANC remote with a specific purpose in mind: toggling the auto focus feature on my Canon C100 on and off when flying the camera on a MoVi stabilizer without a focus puller. And I was encouraged by the light weight of the unit and the possibility of replacing its included coiled LANC cable with a super thin cable. But although the remote has an auto focus button, it wouldn't operate that feature on my camera. I was able to focus my L-series still lenses with the remote's focus rocker, but making smooth accurate focus changes was a challenge. A thumb wheel controller might have been a better option for that feature.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent compact remote I got one of these after purchasing and returning a MVR901EPLA (the bigger version that replaces the pan handle on a tripod head). The big one doesn't fit on the Manfrotto 701 head I purchased for a smaller camcorder, so this is my only option. This model probably has 1-2 less features, but it's compact and usable on any tripd head or could even be handheld. I used this model on a Canon XA-10 camera attached to a 701 head and it worked quite nicely. There is a dial on the side of this remote to limit the zoom speed, so you can dial it in to adjust for your needs. The bottom tip of this remote is a thumb rocker that has a lot of rotation, so you can be very precise with either zoom or focus if desired. The remote has a record start/stop button as well as a camera on/off button. Also has a button to toggle from controlling zoom to focus. I am still not sure what the AF button does -- there is very little useful documentation on these remotes.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Build Use it on my Sony PXW-X70. When you get the 2 other cables needed for the X70, it works really well. Love the adjustments and it's compact size, good for my rig or tripod. Really like the abibilty to adjust the zoom speed from quite slow to fast. Feels well built, and I expect to use it for years to come. Also the ability to turn the camera on or off from the remote is a nice touch, along with the the nice bright light when the record button is pushed, especially when on my rig.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Forget Follow Focus! This remote, when paired with powered lenses, is even better than having a follow focus (and cheaper)! I was trying to figure out how to pull focus while my camera is on a Gyro Gimbal (Letus Helix). I could not use a manual follow-focus because the camera is constantly turning and remote follow-focus systems were bulky, complex, and expensive. (Not to mention often requiring a second operator.) When I came across this remote, I thought it was too simple and easy to be true I thought that there had to be a catch. But there was no catch! I use the remote with my BlackMagic Pocket Cinema Camera and several powered Panasonic Lumix lenses. The remote allows me to stop and start recording and, crucially, adjust the lens focus using the thumb rocker. (Zoom, AutoFocus, and Power control do not work for the BlackMagic Pocket, but manual focus control is the key feature for me and works perfectly!) If you want to be the one-man band, shooting by yourself on a budget, grab this remote, a powered lens, and a 5 monitor. Turn on Focus Peaking and dial in your focus whether your camera is on a tripod, slider, gimbal, etc. You'll be unstoppable!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Useless piece of garbage - stay well away This is a hunk of junk. It was advertised as being compatible with the Canon 5D mk 3. It came lacking a firmware update. I have never ever seen a more difficult to do firmware update than this. I tried it updating it on mac - no go. I tried it on windows - no go. What could and should have been a simple procedure turned out to be a frustrating waste of several hours of my time. And the thing still doesn't work. A total waste of money, in my opinion. Shame - B&H are my top supplier and rarely have I bought something from them that is a dud. This is the exception to the rule.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great unit Got this Manfrotto RC Clamp LANC Zoom/Focus Remote to go with a BlackMagic Studio Camera and a Panasonic Lumix G X Vario PZ 45-175mm. Simply amazing. The zoom and focus controls are very smooth. The build quality is great, and the size is great. Big enough to use comfortably but small enough to not be in the way. I would have liked the cable to be longer; at least the cable is removable from the unit and can be swapped out for a longer one.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing product. Don't know why I didn't purchase it sooner I use this with my Canon Vixia HF G30 camcorder. Works like a charm. Very smooth zooming. Makes recording long sessions on a tripod a lot easier. Used to get arm fatigue holding my arm over the camera for zoom control. Now I just clamp the Remote on the tripod handle at a comfortable position. Also powers on/off the camcorder.
