Camcorder have a LANC port?
If you have either a Sony or Canon camcorder it may have a LANC port.
The LANC port is normally marked with this symbol:
but older Sony models may be marked by a "REMOTE"
in blue letters. Some models are marked by "Control-L".
What is a LANC Port?
LANC was developed by Sony, but Sony has licensed LANC to other
manufactures of 8mm, Hi8, MiniDV, DVD, and other recording media
camcorders. LANC support is found many of the older 8mm and Hi8 Sony
camcorders, and on most high end Sony/Canon camcorders. LANC connectors
are usually 2.5mm stereo mini plugs - about the size of a Walkman
headphone. Some devices use a circular 5-pin DIN jack.LANC connectors
are normally labeled LANC, Control-L, Remote, or designated with a
special LANC symbol that resembles an "L" inscribed in a circle (see
photo above). To determine whether or not your camcorder is LANC
compatible check the camcorder users’ manual, ask your dealer, or
contact the manufacturer directly.
Camcorders with LANC Ports:
Below is a listing of
LANC Compatible Camcorder Models compiled from data, but
this list is not totally complete, as new models are
routinely being manufactured and some models have likely
been missed or mistakenly included, but it is a fairly
accurate snap-shot of all LANC compatible camcorders.
Note that some of the LANC compatible models listed have
had the LANC jack removed in later years of production.
For example, the 2006 models of the Sony HC26 are no
longer LANC compatible.
Note that many of these
camcorders are no longer in production, however, many of
these LANC compatible camcorders can be found on
very low prices.
Hi8 and 8mm
Camcorders with LANC jacks:
Most 8mm and older
Hi8 camcorders manufactured by the following:
Sony, Canon, Nikon, Ricoh, Hitachi, Yashika, Sanyo,
Olympus, Blaupunkt, Grundig, Fujix, Kyocera, Siemens,
Fisher, and possibly other makes.
Current and recent Hi8 camcorder models generally do not
have a LANC jack.
You should further
verify if a particular 8mm or older Hi8 camcorder
actually has a LANC jack (most do - some don't).
Camcorders with LANC (or Remote) jacks:
Please Note: The
models listed represent the first year in production,
and subsequent production years of the same model may
not be LANC compatible. You should always further verify
the actual presence of a LANC (Remote) jack.
