Due to clients flying many different types of cameras we do not supply a camera control (shutter, zoom etc) system, we do offer the ZYX IR Universal control for a wide range of cameras with support for the following cameras and should work on many others:

  • SONY:a230/a330/a450/a500/a550/a580/a33/a55/a65/a77/a99/a700/a900/NEX-5C /NEX-5N /NEX-7K/NEX-5R/NEX-6L

  • Canon old type camera: EOS 10/30/33/100/50/55/Kiss III/KissIIIL/300v/300x/3000vQD, EOS IX¡AELPH, SURERSHOT

*Flying large digital cinema cameras requires fitting, balancing and testing, this also depends on extras, lenses used, it's the responsibility of the client to do this.
