|Lanc-SPORT LANC remote control.|
Designed for use in extreme sports together with a "bullet" type camera lens connected to your video recording device (video camera with AV in capability or video recording deck). Lanc-SPORT can also control the recording device in CAMERA mode. Lanc-SPORT detects the recording device operation mode (VCR or CAMERA) and sets the correct control commands automatically.
Lanc-SPORT makes it easy to start and stop recording - great for saving valuable and expensive DV tapes - no more unnecessary film shots. A short click on the red button toggles between recording and standby. The feedback LED indicator shows the camera status and even tells you when it's time to replace the tape or recharge the battery.

Is Lanc SPORT and Lanc II compatible with these camcorders?
A new version of Lanc SPORT named 1.6 is now available and it is compatible with above camcorders. This version solves the issues with camcorders like SONY HC40 which has a "soft" mode selector switch.
[--- UPDATED: 2004-06-28 23:45:57 ---]
Lanc II is fully compatible. We do not recommend the use of Lanc SPORT (version 1.4 or earlier) on these camcorders if they are intended to be used in VTR mode.
The mechanical switch for selecting the operation mode have been replaced on a number of newer camcorders (see list below) from Sony by a push button. By pressing the button repeatedly available operation modes is selected one by one each time the button is pushed. The selected mode is however not remembered when the camcorder is turned off so each time the camcorder is turned ON it starts from CAMERA mode and the user has to select the desired user mode (MEMORY / PHOTO / VTR etc.) even if it was used in VTR (PLAYER) mode before being turned OFF.
Lanc SPORT (version 1.4 or earlier) will therefore not function as intended if the camcorder is turned OFF and in VTR (PLAYER) mode. Each time the camcorder is turned ON, either by the switch on the camcorder or via Lanc SPORT, it will start up in CAMERA mode and the user have to put the camcorder in VTR (PLAYER) mode manually. Lanc SPORT works in CAMERA mode also so the user can be fooled to believe that the camcorder is in VTR mode and recording when it’s recording in CAMERA mode.
Models affected by this issue:
The list below is based upon currently known models which have AV in and LANC functionality from Sony. The list might be extended to future models if released after the publication of this bulletin.
- We do not recommend the sale of Lanc SPORT (version 1.4 or earlier) to user of the above camcorders.
