The Aputure V-Control is a handheld USB host device designed to control certain Canon DSLR cameras that use Canon’s USB protocol. This controller allows you to switch between still and video modes with a switch. There are Seven buttons and a center drive wheel that give you control over exposure, live-view, and focus settings.
You can change the sensitivity of the focus drive with three different adjustments from 1 to 3 (1 for smoother focus pulls and 3 for harder aperture stops). V-Control offers full hands-on remote control of the camera’s aperture, shutter speed, ISO and exposure compensation when the camera is out of reach; on a dolly or mounted on a crane, for example. The V-Control mounts onto a camera rig rail system using the included single rail or dual rail aluminum mounts. Alternately, the system will work with any other mounting system with a standard tripod ¼-20” thread. The USB control cable connects in either of two ports on the V-Control. A few things to note about the Aputure V-Control when using with your Canon DSLR Camera is this: Be sure the lens has an AUTOMATIC FOCUS feature. Strictly manual lenses will not work with this remote. Be sure not to overdrive the focus on your lens while using this unit, you could damage your lens that way.
