Excerpt: I had a VCT870RM that broke recently after 13 years of use. Got this as a replacement. For some reason, I thought that this will be compatible with a NEX 5t. It isn't. So not being able to use the remote is a disappointing considering that it works with nex 3n and a6000. Maybe I will get a sony in the future with which I can use the remote. The build quality is ok and probably won't work with heavier setup a.
Excerpt: I was looking for a tripod with a "D: 10 pin LANC male connector. (Reference your product Revo VRS-AVR).

Excerpt: I bought this because I have a few year old HVR-A1U and I would like to do more tracking and experimental shots with it. I assumed that I could connect my camera with an adapter at the very least and that Sony wouldn't make a proprietary connector that even they don't provide support for previous generations of products.
Excerpt: I didn't buy it for myself but for a friend and she was very happy about it. She loves the tripod and tells me that it has been the best thing she has gotten since her last tripod broke. 5/5 stars would recommend the tripod to any Sony photographers or just a hobby.
