JVC GY HM150 - Lanc/Zoom Remote
on Jan 13, 2013 at 9:58:59 pm

I own 6 x JVC GY Hm150s and need to put zoom remotes on them as all 6 will be on jibs for shooting sports. Obviously I can buy the $300 JVC Brand only zoom remote they make for it, but $1800 is just way too out of my budget for zooming capbilities, I have other things I need to purchase before that.

I have come up with a solution: I run an optical cable from the camera remote that comes with the camera up to the front of the cameras sensor and use that, and costs roughly $30 for all parts of each one and does the trick. However, I'd like to sray away from the MacGuyver method and go with something semi more professional, but less expensive that $300 a unit.

The JVC has a 3.5mm input jack for the Lanc, while almost every other camera/remote is a 2.5mm. My questions is:

If I get a 2.5mm female to 3.5mm Male adapter, and put the standard lanc remote into the adapter then plug it into my camera would that work, and just simply buy a cheaper remote? Also, this once Libec brand remote has both a 2.5mm and a 3.5mm jack on it for panasonic cameras that have 2 ports, if I were to use this, would it work if I just plugged the 3.5mm end into my JVC. ANy thoughts/sugestions much appreciated. Heres a link to the libec:
