Manfrotto LANC with Sony PXW-Z90

Once you use LANC, you never go back! I wanted to use LANC Zoom control with my Sachtler FSB8 Head and Sony PXW-Z90. I tried the Manfrotto MVR901EPLA Pan Bar Remote and unfortunately it doesn’t fit.

This handy remote control unit is designed to work with Sony and Canon equipment using the LANC. It enables you to control your camera using a cable connected to the LANC port rather than using the buttons on the camera. This can make operation much more convenient and flexible for you enabling you to focus on the shot you are trying to capture rather than the mechanics of the equipment. Basically, it lets you better control the pan bar mounted on the video head better. It also opens up the possibility of having a second pan bar which can be very useful out on location. Additional features include maximum-speed zoom potentiometer, stand-by push button, RET push buttons (playback latest five seconds), rec/zoom/focus indicator LEDs, zoom and focus direction knob (by software), multi-speed zoom and focus knob and a focus/zoom switch.

Roland V-02HD Video Switcher Review

Looking for a simple video switcher? Check out this Roland V-02HD. I’ll be using this when I need a compact setup compared to my ATEM Studio HD. I deeply apologize for such bad audio quality. I usually use my Zoom H6 to record from my Lav mic. Items used in this video:

Switcher, scaler, expander — with audio processing and video effects

Events or productions often bring serious challenges that are easily solved — if you have the right equipment. Roland’s versatile V-02HD multi-format video mixer replaces several standalone units; a simple switcher, high-quality scaler, input expander, audio solution and inline video effects / composition. Save on space and headaches by packing a V-02HD; the portable-yet-powerful device that lets you concentrate on producing your event or shooting your scenes, rather than trouble-shooting your gear.
