The RM-C2 LANC Lens FIZ Controller with ND Button from IDX Systems enables remote REC start/stop, focus, iris, and zoom control for LANC-equipped Sony and Canon camcorders.
It also features an ND filter button so that you can remotely select the filter on your camera. The controller connects to your Canon or Sony camera via a LANC control cable with a 2.5mm connector.
Essentially this is like a mini CCU unit that could come in handy if you need to control a remote camera if you were doing live streams or covering live events. You could also attach it to a pan handle on a tripod and use it to control your camera that way.
- Variable-Speed Focus/Iris/Zoom Control
- ND Filter Button
- Start/Stop Record Button with Lock
- 1 x LANC Daisy-Chain Connector

The controller features zoom, focus, and iris control knobs that can be adjusted for speed. It also features a record start/stop button, a white balance control button, and six function buttons that can be assigned quick settings.
The controller is also compatible with a separately available rackmount or clamp bracket if you want to mount it onto a tripod or handle.
- Up to three LANC-supported Sony and Canon camcorders
- Acebil STF-10 Clamp Bracket
- Acebil HS-REM1 Rackmount Bracket
I couldn’t find any specific list of what exact cameras this system would work with. The functionality and control that would be available would very depend on the camera and lens being used.
