    Manfrotto MVR901EPLA reviews

    RC Pan Bar EX Remote Control for LANC Cameras is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 51.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great remote but not compatible with older Manfrotto 501 hea This remote has a lot of good controls on the handle so that you're not having to reach around the camera and turn things on or off. My only complaint is that Manfrotto changed the size of the screw that attaches to the tripod head and it is not the same size as the older but popular Manfrotto 501 fluid head. Neither did I find this in the specs here. This should have been as easy as unscrewing one bar and attaching the new won. Instead, we're trying to find some work-around to make it fit. Why would they make it incompatible with their own product...or at least why would they not provide an adapter? Not good marketing on their part.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works perfect with NXCAM NX5U Plugged it in and turned on camera. ALWAYS do it in that order! It was recognized in a few seconds and everything worked! I was amazed at how slow it can zoom in and out. You can control focus with the same ring with a turn of a switch. It's a perfect fit with the 504HD head and the ever so cool 536 legs from Manfrotto. It can also control exposure f-stops one at a time in one second intervals...a little slow but at least it works with the NXCAM. Very happy so far. Has the one push quick focus that works too with the NX5U. Long time waiting form a lanc that all functions work 100% that doesn't cost a fortune and it looks great with the 504 head and legs! Thanks again to BH and Manfrotto

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Choice for JVC GY-HM600 Camcorder As of this writing, there are only two LANC Lens Remote Controls available for the JVC GY-HM600 & 650 Camcorders on the market. One made my Varizoom and the other is made by Manfrotto. When the GY-HN600 was sent to me for demo, JVC sent along they're recommended Varizoom Remote Lens Control. I did not like its side-by-side (thumb) rocker motion for zooming the lens, ... just un-natural. I later tried the Manfrotto Controller at NAB and found it to be a more professional movement (think REAL STUDIO Camera Control) with a natural U-Shaped Thumb-Guide, as well as, easily accessible zoom-speed limiter, and Iris/Focus controls. The RC Pan Bar EX Remote Control (LANC) is actually priced less.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sure beats using the camera controls We bought two of these to use on our Canon XA25's to video our worship services. The operators love them. At this time we only use the zoom thumb control and the focus manual/auto side switch. We typically run in auto focus mode, but if we have a lot of back lighting, the focus may go in and out so if we run into the focus issue we zoom tight in AF mode and let the camera focus, then slide the switch to manual to lock in the focus, then zoom out to our shot. Only reason I didn't give five stars is that the zoom, even in pro mode, is noticeably sluggish compared to the on-camera zoom button.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The closest I can get to broadcast The RC Pan Bar Remote work great with LANC compatible cameras! The feel of the zoom/focus control is smooth, and the auto focus / record functions are very useful. I'm using it with the BlackMagic Studio Camera, and it's certainly the closest I can get to broadcast control with this little micro four thirds camera.Also, the optional pan bar adaptors for tripods with different pan bar connections makes this controller compatible with many types of camera tripods.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It Works Great! Bought specifically for external remote variable speed zoom control mounted on a tripod. The more you turn the the zoom(focus) control the faster the zoom will go. Works zooming in or out with a great deal of control. There is a separate knob that works as a speed limiter. Bought with the remote control unit with a Varizoom Mini Audio/Video to Lanc Converter Cable to connect to my consumer Sony HDR-CX360 video camera. The camera was not on the list of cameras. EVERYTHING WORKED, worked well and with great operator control for the zoom. Item used for capturing automotive race action. No negatives as far as operation. Items packed well, timely shipping.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from works with Sony HVR-Z5U perfectly Finally a remote pan bar for my LANC that works 100% on both my SONY main cameras. This was purchased for my SONY NXCAM NX5U and all functions work flawlessly. PLUS it works 100% with my Sony HVR-Z5U as well. GREAT WORK MANFROTTO! Thanks! ALWAYS PLUG IN FIRST THEN POWER UP CAMERA ! !

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Used with my Sony HVR-Z1U Use the LANC to zoom HVR-Z1U while recording weddings, briefings, training. Good: LANC allows me to zoom my Z1U. Bad: LANC disabled auto-focus; had to manually focus a 2 hour briefing.
