Many canon DSLR film makers have been frustrated by the fact that a standard wired external shutter release will not start and stop video recording.  This can be a problem when setting up a shot perfectly, then having to mess up the framing by reaching up to press the video start button on the camera, then needing to edit out the first few seconds of shaky and badly framed footage for every single scene.

With the V-remote, video can now be stopped and started without touching the camera.  The start/stop button mounds conveniently on the handle of your rig or camera support via its elasticated Velcro strap.  The stiff extension wire can then be bent into shape in order to point the infra-red transmitter LED at the IR receiver on the camera.  As long as the LED is pointing in the right direction, the exact positioning is not crucial, due to the 5 meter range.

Note: camera, and rig pictured above not included.

The unit is designed to work with any Canon DSLR with IR remote functionality.  This includes the following cameras plus several more:

  • 5D Mark II
  • 5D Mark III
  • 7D
  • 550D
  • 500D
  • 450D
  • 60D
  • 600D
  • 650D
  • 1100D

The unit is powered via a small CR1632 button cell which will last a very long time.  The button cell is supplied free with each remote.
