The Manfrotto SYMPLA HDSLR Clamp-On Remote Control
These are the world's first true electronic HDSLR remote controls. By interfacing with camera and lens firmware directly, these two units promise real innovation in the field of HDSLR filming: they circumvent the need for any physical interface between follow-focus equipment and the camera lens, and instead wire directly into the camera body to use the internal focus control systems. The advantages are obvious: lenses can be swapped easily without extra hardware or adjustment, nothing jolts the camera unexpectedly during follow-focus, one-man camera operation is easier, and control at a distance is as simple as extending the cable between the camera and the remote.
By interfacing with the camera's protocols, not only focus control operation as in- and out- focus point pre-sets, one-touch auto-focus and focusing speed can be managed by the remote control unit... many other camera functions can also be operated, including record start & stop, photo/video switching and shutter release, live view, digital zoom, aperture and exposure, ISO settings and more besides, depending on the version.
There are two models of remote control: a basic, compact clamp version, and a deluxe joystick control with built-in LCD screen. Differences aside, both models are perfectly integrated into the SYMPLA system, fitting comfortably on (or in place of) an Adjustable Handle and allowing fingertip control of key camera functions without moving the hand from the grips, in turn making support more stable and secure. Both models are also future-proof, with USB connections to allow occasional firmware upgrades. The USB connection is also what plugs into the HDSLR camera body in order to command it.
