EOS-1D X Mark III
- Jan 29, 2011
The EOS-M is not compatible with remote control via the USB port.
I don't plug the cord in anymore either. I used to always hit the follow focus wheel and it would mess with the DPAF focus and over-ride it. I do miss being able to hit the record button on the handle, but thats ok.Graphic.Artifacts said:Can’t speak to the M but in my personal experience the Crane 2’s electronic interface is more trouble than it’s worth. I don’t use follow focus so the only thing that I would use it for is the shutter button and a Canon remote release is going to be a much more reliable control. My advise is just forget about the electronics and use a remote release. I’ve had much better results since I switched.

BTW, maybe my issues are about to arrive but I have to say so far my 1DX2 being tethered hasn't been a problem. About the weight and fatigue, I rely on my belt to take the weight off my arm by letting the feet sink down into my shirt. Of course this isn't ideal if you're walking and shooting.
Thanks for that link; the review was well done. I'll be satisfied with what I've got for the little difference there is.privatebydesign said:Jack here is the best comparison of the Ronin-S and Zhiyun Crane 2 I have seen and I'd mirror everything he says were I as competent at video as he is!
I'll let you know about the CamRanger as soon as I can, would the panning base for the CamRanger not give you what you are after for the 400?
Yes, the first thing I noticed a while back. I presume they work out for that reason. I've even been thinking of doing the same at least for my arms!ethanz said:How come all the guys in these videos have muscles bigger than my head?
