Our Lanc adapters do NOT influence or alter the LANC protocol.
The Lanc signal is passed through from the Lanc controller to the Sony video camera.

Most of the Newer Sony consumer video cameras don't have the standard 2.5mm LANC jack.
The LANC controls is part of the 10 pin A/V jack or AV/R jack as shown to the Right.

Only the models listed above are affected.
If your video camera is NOT listed, then it will work with no problems.

This is what Sony did to these models: ONLY the 2011 video cameras listed above, so when you plug in a cable with a LANC connector, it disables the composite video output. You can still using the HDMI jack to get video out. You can thank Sony for this ridiculous change to the AV/R jack on only the 2011.

On the 2013 and 2014 models, Sony changed the LANC port to a new design. You will need to purchase the VMC-AVM1 adapter cable from Sony.

So if you video camera is NOT listed above, you have nothing to worry about.

A few people have asked, why didn't we use a right angle 10 pin connector on our LANC Adapter. The reason is, on some cameras, if you plug in a right angle 10 pin connector, it will cover some of the buttons/function switches on the video camera.

NOTE:  We do NOT make custom cables. Sorry.

These cables do NOT work on the Sony EX1, EX1R and EX3 Video Cameras. The Sony EX1, EX1r, EX3 video cameras are from Sony's Pro/Broadcast division. Even though they have an A/V jack, these video cameras do NOT use Lanc Controls. It takes a special Lens Controller to control the zoom and record/pause. The lanc adapter will NOT work on the EX1, EX1r EX3 and other video cameras from the Pro/Broadcast division.

"I built my own End Zone Camera shooting High School football games.  All I needed was a way to get the video and Lanc out of my Sony CX260 video camera.  After searching on the web, I found your Lanc adapter cable with the A/V outputs.  Just what I was looking for.  I ordered and it arrived in a few days.  It works perfectly!!!  I now have Video/Audio output and LANC control for my End Zone Camera.  Great stuff."  Danny Moore, Chicago, Ill.


Customer Comments:

"Just want to let you know after trying several other LANC only adapters, I finally found one that has a tight 2.5mm jack and that is yours.  I was beginning to think the 2.5mm jack was going to be a problem for me, but with you LANC adapter, once I plug in the 2.5mm plug, your adapter it the only one I found to hold it in place tightly.  Great work guys."  Brad Connor, Internet Email.

"Our school needed a LANC Adapter cable for our End Zone Video Camera that we where building.  After calling in and talking to someone about what we needed, we ordered the 4ft LANC Adapter cable, the 25ft LANC Extension cable and the 25ft video cable and a ProZoom 2 Lanc Controller, all from Studio 1 Productions.  Everything arrived two days later.  We connected everything up just as your sales person told us to and everything worked perfectly!  I couldn't be a happier customer.  Jeff Platt, Email
