  • Model: CAM_CTRL_LANC_I2C (42273)

The Cam-CTRL LANC I2C is a control board to control cameras and video cameras by using your RC receiver, This module supports the SONY LANC-Interface.

The Cam-CTRL can be connected to the flight controller (Flight-Ctrl) or to the Navi-Ctrl (V2.1 or higher). An external compass can not be used in this configuration.

The camera will start recording via a switch on your remote control and will continue until this switch is turned back to OFF.
This makes the recording much more effective rather than operating it through a start/stop button via the IR port.

This version is smaller and lighter with direct video output connector (with Molex connectors).

Important: This module is foreseen with a Multi connector, present on Sony video cameras since year 2013.

Compatible cameras:

  • HDR CX410
  • HDR-PJ650

The following functions can be used:

  • REC Start/Stop

Besides these functionalities, the Cam-CTRL usefully shows the status of the camera and transmits it to the drone (functionality available with MikroKopter flight controllers). This means that a camera-status symbol is displayed in the Graupner-HoTT, Jeti or MKTool telemetry:

  • Number of pictures shot (indication: 0-9)
