Vivitar 8 Button Remote Control

I got the Vivitar LANC control from B&H and was surprised how many of the functions work with the NX5U.

Power will shut power on and off as long as the camcorder power switch is on. Don't forget the on camera switch when you shutting down.
Record, focus and on screen (display) buttons all work as expected.
Search appears to do nothing.
Zoom has an adjustable fixed speed are a variable setting. In my short test, the variable speed starts out slow and after about 2-3 seconds the speed jumps to a higher speed.

The mount is a spring clamp. It's strong enough, but a screw clamp would have been preferred. My case keep coming open at the top end away from the bottom screw. I'll see how it holds up.

The unit has a 14" cable and includes a 4.5" A/V R adapter.

For the price, $21.95, it's not bad.
