Lanc handle camera controllers for SONY

Post by Peter Stedman » Sat Jul 18, 2015 3:27 pm

I have a large tripod which has a Manfrotto handle camera control which is absolutely fine. Generally this tripod is too heavy for casual carrying around so I have a smaller one which is just about adequate for my Sony NX3 camera and on this for years I’ve used a small VariZoom camera control. Sadly this has given up the ghost.

Looking on the web I can find many of these controls for working on the Lanc camera socket and these range from the cheap & nasty to the rather expensive model like my existing Manfrotto model.

Do any members use and of these items that they can recommend that work fine on Sony cameras? Be pleased to hear your advice and recommendations.

Pete.
