Sony RM-VPR1 overview

  • 1Description

The RM-VPR1 Remote Control with Multi-terminal Cable for Select Sony Cameras and Camcorders from Sony is a wired remote commander that allows various remote control operations to be performed without handling the camera, therefore eliminating camera shake and providing self-portrait and other control applications. When using the RM-VPR1 with most Sony cameras, you are able to control shutter, optical zoom, digital zoom and bulb function. You are also able to control video recording. The remote is also functional with the Alpha a99, a77, a65, a57 and a37 cameras but only for photo (not video) functions. Both a 31.5" Multi-Terminal cable and remote terminal cable are included for comprehensive compatibility.

    Sony RM-VPR1 reviews

    RM-VPR1 Remote Commander with Multi-Terminal Cable is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 149.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works with RX10 - love the power switch With RX10, I had high hope for wifi remote, but it turns out too basic and only works for photo. So, I bought RM-VPR1. Only used for video recording and it works well. I could sit next to tripod mounted RX10 and using the remote to zoom in and out, start and stop recording. Best feature I discovered was the power on/off button. Once the power of RX10 was on I can turn off or back on using the power button from the remote. Unlike the main power button, if you turn off from remote and turn back on, the camera lens will zoom in to last used position. It is like a sleep switch.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great remote Works great with my dsc-rx100 V camera and fdr-ax53 camcorder. I love the slow and smooth zoom. I also figured out a way to get better selfies using the remote on rx100 V camera. One problem I had before with the rx100 V on a selfie stick was that I had to manual focus before I fire the 3 second timer and extend the selfie stick out. Now with the remote, I can reach out and compose first and press the shutter button on the remote halfway to get a focus. I also like it that you clap the remote on the tripod handle vertically and horizontally. And you can turn the camera or camcorder on/off with the remote.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Add On I find this to be the perfect add on for my system. I do professional portrait work often in areas such as in the mountains or distant areas not in a studio. This removes the issues of touching the camera when taking the shots for the best outcome. I also have found it indispensable when using my Sirui P-324S monopod in the field where I don't want to handle the camera but find it stable enough to use with this device. Love the ability to zoom with my RX10MkIII on this remote and using the bulb mode on my A7RII. Nice small size and well made with smooth actuation.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works perfectly with Sony PXW-X70 Thanks to the reviewer who mentioned using this remote with the X70, since this camcorder is not on the compatibility list. I found the construction to be robust enough. The zoom rocker will allow very slow zooming but it takes a little practice. The VPR1 mounts nicely on the pan handle of the tripod. The connector that Sony calls a multi connector is really just a micro-USB connector so you can use a USB extension if you want to use the VPR1 to control your camera while it is mounted on a jib. Finally, the VPR1 does not use a battery. It is simply an extension of some of the camera's most often-used controls.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Remote For Sony's PXW-X70 (XDCAM) Used this remote on my monopod while recording my Grandson's soccer game. This time it was so much easier by having this remote. By using the Sony remote I didn't have to search for the camera controls. I'm very pleased with this recent purchase for B&H. Zooming works slow to fast by the pressure you apply to the toggle button.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from works well with Sony A7rii camera Very happy with this. On my Sony A7rii camera, the shutter button triggers automatic focus & shoots. So far, the images focused by the remote seem as sharp as focusing with the shutter release on the camera. The remote button also wakes the camera from sleep. The cord is long enough to use away from the tripod. The clip accessory allows flexible placement of the control - e.g. on the tripod, on the camera strap. That also prevents tension from the cable on the micro usb input on the camera

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Small but Works It works ok. The rocker is very small, so when shooting in the dark in a live performance setting, it's hard to find the rocker once your hand returns back after setting camera controls like iris or focus. I did get used to it, but I'm used to the larger rockers from Varizoom. Also if you are not right on the rocker, you can push pretty hard before it zooms. If your right on, it's pretty sensitive and actually zooms in and out well. It's also easy to hit the record button by accident while thumbing around for the rocker. You do have to press hard for record on/off - a plus just in case you hit it on occasion. It does what it's supposed to do. Higher rating if rocker was bigger, and record button was somewhere else. The clamp to hold it onto the tripod handle is too small for professional tripods, so I had to use gaffer tape and tape unit to handle. It would be nice if it had some other controls like iris.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from RM-VPR1 Remote is Pricey, but works! I was looking for a cable remote for my Sony A7R camera and purchased this one as not many compatible remotes are available that use the multi-function terminal connection. It works as advertised. A power switch will wake the camera from sleep but not if the power is off. The release works just like the regular shutter release with focus halfway down and shutter release all the way down. Bulb has a lock, so you don't have to hold it down. One Con is that the multi-function connector sticks out about 1/2 inch from the side of the camera.
