The Manfrotto SYMPLA Clamp-On Remote Control for Canon DSLRs connects to a Canon DSLR by USB and interfaces directly with the camera and lens firmware to control focus operations and the main functions of the camera. The remote can either be clamped onto the SYMPLA spacer that comes with SYMPLA Adjustable Handles, which are part of most SYMPLA rigs, or it can be clamped onto round tubes, pipes, bars, pan bars or anything similar between 12 and 23mm in diameter.

Direct controls include auto focus, start/stop recording, photo shutter release, live view and live view digital zoom. Other than direct controls, the remote features a customizable focus direction and speed limit, focus memory settings, and fixed or variable focus control modes. It also has LED indicators that display its own battery status, the camera's mode -- "Photo" or "Video" -- and whether the camera is "Recording" when in video mode.

The focus operation is totally remote, without any contact with the camera or lens, and is performed by a 3-step, ultra-precise focus speed. Compatible cameras are Canon DSLRs because the remote is geared specifically for Canon DSLR firmware.

The advantages of this remote are few but huge. Follow-focusing is automated. Lenses can easily be swapped. Extending the distance between the remote and the camera is as simple as using a longer USB cable. And very importantly -- you're afforded more self-reliance.

question

Will this work on a canon t3 to control recording

question

Is this compatible with the Canon T6i?
Asked by: Anonymous
Yes, It does. It performs differently with each particular lens. I tested it with the 24mm 2.8, 50mm 1.8, 10-18mm, 18-55mm, 55-250mm and they all work. You have to learn the system a bit, using the system in Full Speed is not very useful but I have achieved good results after paying with the setting for a bit. So far, I think this is the best option for focus pull with canon's STM lenses. I hope this helps you.

Panasonic has a unique LANC set up and it is best to get LANC controllers that say they are specifically for Panasonic cameras. Here is one in your budget range. Acebil Zoom Controller for Panasonic Mini DV or HDV Cameras B&H # ACRMCL1DVX

is this compatible with 1dx mkii ? start/stop video recording and activate/deactivate autofocus ?
Asked by: Guilain G.
I bought this controller for my 1DX mkii. The remote control uses a 'usb 2 Mini B' to 'usb 2 mini B' cable. The 1DX mkii has a USB 3 Micro B jack. I'm gonna try an adapter and report back. Ugh!!

question

On a Canon 5dM3 - can both focus and zoom speeds be adjusted on the fly?
Asked by: Kingmond Y.
You can adjust the focus speed only. I don't think u can control zoom with this (other than the punch in for focus). Hope that helps.
