    I've discovered the bargain of the century, Jessops are doing a lanc contooler for £30. I've been wanting to buy one of these for ages but couldn't stretch to the Manfrotto one.

    My am cam doesn't have a focus ring, which I find really annoying (it has a toggle switch but I get camera shake, especially at the far end of the zoom when MF is more critical) but the Lanc contoller does.

    As far as I was told in the shop it was only suitable for Sonys or Canons, dont know why this is, but its a sony I use of my am cam and it works a treat. the guy in the shop demoed it on a flashy canon one and it seemed to do the trick.

    Its got a zoom and rec start stop and straps onto my tripod handle.

    Whilst it's not a "Pro" Camcorder, my HD Sony CX410 has a wired-remote socket ( but NOT the standard 2.5mm jack, DYOR ).
    Whilst it's good for slow/fast zoom and start/stop ( and taking Stills ), it lacks a decent cord-length, being sold as part of a rather stumpy/flimsy Sony tripod. (There is no "Focus" option.), this is because "Focus" is done via the LCD, screen.
    The BOSS stabaliser removes any hint of tripod-wobbles, but an extra length of leg wouldn't come amis (for the money!).... and the cable should be coiled, so it can reach the ground when the tripod is on a table (for example)..... It reaches the pan-handle as supplied.....
    Knowing that Sony rather likes to generate its own "Standards" means this is a rubbish-purchase as it won't fit any other camcorder . . . the greater laugh being their USB lead, because the USB plug isn't USB - it only fits the cable they supply ! "Universal" or what?

    This Remote I have used it for Studio-work, but it doesn't get much use - and neither does the Sony Tripod - although it conveniently weighs little; it's in the Kit-Bag as a "spare" - but sadly they didn't think to supply a spare camera-plate ( Ho-Ho it's only plastic !), so it's a fiddle if wanting the change cameras.

    I suspect the use of Smartphones to interact with consumer camcorders will remove the need for Remotes, LANC or otherwise.... and give us a remote-view too, even if it's at lower definition.

    FWIW
    I understand LANC was a jv dev. by Sony and Canon.
