Operation - Manfrotto 521 Instruction Manual

Hide thumbs


After switching the camera on, the LANC controller LED indicator
should light continuously. The last used zoom speed mode will be
set – the current setup will be indicated by one of zoom speed
LEDs. LED indicator not lighting at all means problem with power
supply of the controller. LED indicator blinking every two seconds
means problem with LANC communication. In either case check
the LANC cable connections to camera and controller. Controller is
designed to work only with video cameras having the 2.5 mm
stereo LANC jack. Never connect controller to any other jack,
which does not have the LANC logo. It may even result in perma-
nent controller and/or camera damage! Controller is designed as a
standalone control system for video cameras - it is not designed to
work simultaneously with other LANC control systems.
