Extracto: Just what I needed. I use it to take still photos on tripod. No Blur and maximizes the quality of the shot. The upsampling in the camcorder creates noise so I use topaz deNoise 5 to correct it. It works well. I would buy it again if I lost it.
Extracto: I record a lot of musical concerts in diverse places. My Remote Commander it one thing that I cannot do without. It is very convenient; all that needs to be done is connect it to the camera and place it at some easily accessible place on the triod. I do this and sit down next to my tripod. I can zoom in or out with ease. I've used my Remote many times in the two years I've owned it; and it works smoothly and is fast.
A favor: Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Reliable, Sturdy
Extracto: I have a compatibility-listed Sony HDR-CX430V camera. The connector on the "commander" does NOT match the connector on the camera. You ALSO need the Sony VMC-AVM1 adapter cable. What a rip!
Extracto: Easy to hook up and use. Cable is plenty long enough to give user flexibility. I was considering getting the remote/ tripod all in one. But I have a very good tripod already. It clips easily on the pan arm. I use the twist tie to control the slack in the cable. Easy to hook up and shoot with, right out of the packaging! I highly recommend this product! <br /><br />I haven't had it a long time, but I am very happy with this purchase!!!!!
