Sometimes the included remote of these camcorders don't work unless you're pointing it right in front of the camera. This is why you need devices like this eBenk Remote. On the Canon HFS200 and probably all the other Canon camcorders that have a LANC port -- The Zoom, on/off, record/stop, and photo buttons work. The other smaller buttons do not. Make sure you're in photo mode for the photo button to work, though, as you will see in my video.

eBenk Universal LANC Zoom Remote Handle for Tripods
I needed a zoom controller to attach to another device ordered at the same time-- a Cam Caddie Camera Stabilizer. CAM CADDIE CAMERA STABILIZER The extremely low price of this item nearly scared me away, but I decided to take a chance. I'm glad I did, because while is isn't a Manfrotto or Vari-Zoom, it does the job, at an eighth of the price, mounted to the handle of a device used only on occasion. If I needed to mount it on a tripod handle, I could do that just as easily. Reliability is something I can't predict, but for now... it works. And I'm happy.

When I looked at the price of other LANC controllers, I was amazed at this low price. Worst case, I'd have an affordable backup so I bought it. Wow, was I surprised. I'm using it with my Sony HVR-A1U and Tiffen sticks and it works great!

I bought this controller for my Canon Vixia HF-G10. All buttons work fine EXCEPT for the On-Off switch. If you try to turn the camera off with it, it cycles over and over,.. off, on, off, on....etc. You must unplug the controller to shut the camera down. Would not recommend to anyone with this camera.

I'm Very happy with the product for the price!. Got this controller in 3 days from the date of purchase. I'm using it for Sony DCR-TRV-25.
Two notes: 1) would be nice if the zoom rocker had the option of speed control build in, in addition to the hard-set one - I'm happy with what it has, I can do some nice and steady zooms. 2) the rocker has a rather loud click when engaged, but I added some very thin foam (about ¼") underneath the rocker switch - (to do this you need to open up the unit, 3 screws, one at the back and two on the top front under the label).
....Two months later...
Just completed a new project, the rocker (with the foam pad) performs excellent! and with a little practice, the speed can be managed with no problem. I'm still very satisfied with this product.

This is a cheap lanc remote that is surprisingly good. I'm using it on a sony dcr-sr100 camcorder. I use it for smooth zooms for sporting events and it works great. There are two cons I will mention. The rocker makes some noise when pushed but when you get used to it you can limit the clicks. The tripod clip isn't the most secure but it's good enough to get the job done. I have used to regularly for 3 months with no problems. This is by far the cheaps lanc controller with variable zoom control by $100.

As some other reviewers have said, this does not work (as claimed) with the Canon Vixia HF G10. Yes, when the camera is on, it will zoom, record, and a few other functions. However, try to turn the camera off or on, and it enters a loop sequence, where the camera just keeps turning itself on and off over and over again.

Sending it back ASAP.

I would highly recommend this Lanc controller. Works very well especially the speed control. I wish they had designed the clip better. I use this for my HVR-V1U and attach it to my manfrotto tripod handle. It sits at an angle which sometimes is little bit inconvenient (I wish it sits flat on the handle)

This is a great buy

For $25 this LANC control is everything you can expect and more! The only complaint I can find was mentioned in a few earlier posts. The zoom button rattles and has a semi loud click that can be heard during quiet shooting. But here is what I did to get around that. I opened the control up (one tiny viewable screw on bottom with two underneath the grey button logo that needs to be peeled). Once open, I cut narrow sticky velcrow strips (the soft side) and put them around the inside of the button to create a cushion. That took care of the rattle. I then cut two tiny squares out and stuck them over the actual tiny buttons that are clicked to zoom in and out. I then put it all back together and I was left with a silent smooth zoom control! This is so perfect for shooting sporting events now at a dirt cheap price!

This is my second one, and just as I expected, the zoom rocker broke within the first couple minutes of use. The first one is not so bad; it just feels weird. I guess the spring broke, or slipped out. On the second one, the zoom rocker gets stuck each time you zoom in or out. So if you try to zoom just a little bit, it will keep zooming after you take your finger off the rocker. You have to press the opposite end, or lift up the end you were pressing. All the other buttons work just fine though. I have a Sony FX7, and a Canon Vixia HF-G20, and the focus works great. Even when either camera is set to auto focus, pressing the "N" or "F" buttons on the this remote will over-ride the auto focus.
