Providing not only the basic record start/stop, zoom, focus, and iris controls of standard LANC remotes, the RC-V100 Remote Controller from Canon features much of the functionality found on broadcast CCU remotes. Controls you will find include full access to the menu, gain and shutter speed, white balance adjustment, image control, pedestal and master black, and more. In addition to dedicated controls, two assignable buttons allow the user to program in frequently called up settings.
The buttons are back-illuminated, and can provide audible feedback to confirm a setting change has been successfully executed. It is possible to define the directionality of rotaries, disable audible alerts, and apply other customizations via an array of dip switches. The remote powers from the host camera so that no separate battery is required, and a 15′ connection cable is included. There is a USB port for firmware updates so that new functions and support for new camera models can be added.
Note: Please change your camera’s Remote setting (via the menu) from “Standard” to “RC-V100” to enable use with this controller.

Powerful remote control
This powerful wired remote control for Canon’s professional camcorders brings basic and advanced image adjustment to your fingertips. Connect via the REMOTE A socket using the standard 5m 3.5mm-2.5mm jack cable, or with the REMOTE B socket (using the optional 8-pin RR-10 and RR-100 cables) for faster performance, simultaneous operation and increased range – up to 10m and 100m respectively.
The RC-V100 combines some of the benefits of an advanced remote control and a Camera Control Unit (CCU), typically found in a studio environment. Almost any adjustable function can be controlled – from focus, iris and zoom, to user-specific options such as Custom Picture presets and specific image adjustments like knee point and slope.
Record more, differently
Certain scenarios demand remote camera control: when the camera is mounted on a jib for elevated shots, for example, or in scenarios that require quick adjustment to compensate for changing conditions. Thanks to remote access and control, these recording obstacles can be overcome. In combination with the RC-V100, Canon professional camcorders become even more versatile tools to help realise your creative vision.
Intuitive layout for greater control
The controller’s intuitive layout makes control of key camera functions and image parameters easy, even if you’re not an expert on the camera concerned. It has been carefully designed to be easy to understand and learn, with key features grouped together in three main sections. Common image parameters are controlled using dials, making remote image fine-tuning incredibly simple. Furthermore, user-assignable buttons are provided for added versatility.
Clear and simple operation, wherever, whenever
To aid operation in low-light situations, the buttons are illuminated, with the option of an audible ‘beep’ to confirm user selections.
Your camera firmware may need to be updated to enable compatibility with the RC-V100. If the RC-V100’s REMOTE B terminal is not already enabled, this can be done via a service update using the device’s USB port.
