Fotga Sony Remote on RX10 MKII Power ON OFF Control Zoom Lens Start Stop Video

I was going to just append this video to my original Fotga Sony Remote article, but there are sooo many RX10 Mark II Camera Owners that I decided to just post this up separately to show the functions this remote has with the RX10MKII. You can see with my little shoulder rig, I can continue to have the best stability because I never have to take my hands away from the handles when performing functions on the RX10 MKII.

Once again, here's the link to the Fotga Remote for Sony Cameras.

    @Mike - For a camera like the RX10II, it has amazing image stabilization, so this small rig works very well. If you have something like a GH4 and a lens without Image stabilization, then a shoulder rig works better when your handles are spaced very far apart - very wide (think fig rig). And also adding mass over the shoulder pad (like a counterweight) will help keep a tiny rig stable too.

    Here's a little article about parts of the rig: http://cheesycam.com/pvgear-3-way-15mm-rod-base-plate-for-dslr-or-mirrorless-video-cameras/

    I have to Sony version of this remote and assuming is the same I can say it works on any Sony with the multi port input.

    My original rx10 and the mark 2. As well as rx100, a7s, a6000, and even my $300 point and shoot. You might be pleased to learn that it also controls the power zoom on the kit lens (16-50) on my a6000. I assume other PZ lenses as well.

    Nice addition.

    On a side note. What is that compact little rug featured in this video?

    Emm pretty neat rig there. What are the components? It's like a gunstock with two handles? Does it keep your footage pretty stable?

    @Diallo - Because Video can be started with the normal Shutter Button on the GH4 (sony doesn't use shutter button), you pretty much just need a basic shutter remote. Something like this: http://www.amazon.com/Foto-Tech-DMW-RS1-Replacement-Panasonic/dp/B00J47MOYU

    If you want to use 'Servo Zoom', there are only two lenses that I know Panasonic supports. You can either use the Panasonic Image App to zoom your lens: http://cheesycam.com/panasonic-gh4-w-power-zoom-14-42mm-and-45-175mm-lenses/

    Or to zoom those lenses, you can use a dedicated LANC that supports Panasonic protocol like this: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/361366-REG/Libec_ZC_3DV.html

    @Paul Hidalgo - I haven't tried, but I hear people saying it should. Would be interesting to know.
