The RM-VPR1 remote control with multi-terminal cable is a wired remote commander for select Cyber-shot® cameras, Handycam® camcorders and Alpha interchangeable lens cameras. The remote controls various operations to be performed without handling the camera, therefore eliminating camera shake and improving image quality results and convenience. In addition to activating the shutter from a distance, you can control zoom and record video. This remote control is also compatible with legacy Alpha interchangeable-lens cameras, but is limited to photo function only. Compatibility varies by model, see below for a complete list of compatible Sony devices.
