6K/4K LANC control

Hello

I know this has been posted before, but I would love a firmware update, if possible, to have LANC on the 6K. I know there are apps, but I find it cumbersome and frankly not professional to whip out my phone during a shoot. Recently shot a spot with a UMP G1 and BMPC6K and the cam op had to reach over and constantly check recording on his shoulder rig. Extremely inconvenient.

Any way to enable this via the 3.5mm port, Blackmagic? The USB-C is already being used for power and external drives.

Otherwise love the camera! My client was blown away by the quality.

Guess I'm alone on this?

The camera would need a physical Lanc connector and hardware in addition to software, so, no not possible to do with a FW update. Lanc was developed by Sony for camcorders — time to move on. :roll:

I have one of these arriving the next few days (supposed to ship tomorrow) - it looks very promising and gives you a lot of control over what you want the buttons to be doing to the camera. It says the campaign is closed now, so I don't know if it's still possible to order - I hope so.

I guess it's essentially the same as an app, but with hardware buttons and more suitable than getting your phone out on location

I would really love to see a simple and cheap physical record trigger as well.

it works wonderfully and it doesn't cost much

Let us know. I'm with Tyler, I love the little push-button LANC controller that I use with my Pocket 2K. And no, I don't want to be messing with my phone out in the field, unlocking, dropping, etc. No thanks.
