    Remote video start/stop for the 5D3

    Any recommendations on a good controller (wireless or wired) for the 5D3?


    Getting ready to shoot my first raw short film and have a couple of crane shots so remote start/stop control is essential. Focus and iris control would be nice.

    Any recommendations? Anything I miss? Thanks!

    When you say crane, what type are you talking about?

    Also something along the lines of a 2 channel BarTech BFD would give you wireless focus & iris if your lenses are geared.

      8 foot and 12 foot gib/crane work. Rack focus ability is not needed but critical focus before rolling would be good.

      Start/Stop is necessary.

        Camranger looks pretty good- provides remote monitoring too.

            I'm not really sure why you feel a start/stop would be necessary with jib size device which can be lowered into start/stop position for verification in 4 seconds? We do it all the time. It's a great way to verify that the shot was recorded properly.

            Real cranes are another story.
