Advice on a LANC Camcorder, please.


Standard Member

I'e been using my trusted Panasonic NVGS5 for the last few years but it has finally given up the ghost.

I use it, along with a helmet cam, when out mountain biking and to be honest its not the simplest task to set it recording from the helmet cam (via the analogue in). I hope to buy a new cam with LANC to make life easier.

My question is this.....

What Sony/Canon camcorders have LANC and what's the cheapest?

I've looked on the Sony and Canon websites and can find little info.

Thanks for all your help,



Whatabout a camera with an infrared remote control? Just point the remote at the camera before you set off, start it recording, put the remote in a safe place and stop it when you finish. Then in editing cut out the bits at the start and end.
