list of lanc recorders

Found this list of lanc camcorders might be usefull for those starting from scratch!
The table isn't formated properly but is still easy to decipher. Just read the heading and that is the order of the information. Many are discontinued and can be had on ebay for cheap

Trailmaster TM700v

It doesn't look like anyone has been on this forum for a while, but I'll try a post anyway.
I have 8 Trailmaster TM700v motion sensors that were used in a research project which is now finished. They all work perfectly, and have LANC cables as well as the Trailmaster light controllers. I'm not sure if advertising this kind of stuff is allowed here, but maybe someone knows where a good place to list these may be? They're pretty specialized and high-end as anyone who has experience with these units knows. I also have 10 Sony HDV camcorders (HC5s, HC7s and HC9s w/ batteries) that were also used. Anyone have any ideas where to find some interest in these?

Re: Motion activated recording hardware

Probably this isn't the right forum for advertising, but it is the one where interested people are most likely to see that you have this stuff for sale.

I also have a trailmaster TM700V for sale here in the UK.

Although many cameras have LANC control, the Trailmaster only works with the Sony cameras. I have had three Canon cameras and a Sony A1, the Trailmaster works only with the latter.

Re: Motion activated recording hardware

I too have only used them on Sonys, but I never tried anything else. They worked on every Sony (the above listed models, as well as some higher-end camcorders I wasn't willing to leave out in the woods). LANC should be a universal protocol, but maybe there is some minor differences which preclude playing nice with the TM700v. The sensors are unparalleled in performance though, nothing even comes close. Newer models of Sony camcorders now use the 'AV' port (and did away with LANC) but there is an outfit in CA who makes a LANC adapter which works perfectly through the AV port. Again, I can only verify this on Sony camcorders.
I haven't a clue where to advertise these sensors though, as they are such high-end and specific products. Pretty much only people interested in really high quality video would be interested, since there is a plethora of self-contained and easier to use trail cams available. (but the video quality of these are abysmal)
Good luck with yours, Annie, and if you find someone looking for more used sensors, send 'em my way!
cheers

Re: Motion activated recording hardware

Derek do you know if they actually work with the new sony camcorders. I have two of the units but would like to use a camcorder that uses sd cards instead of tape. I tried a canon camcorder years ago and the TM700v wouldn't operate it so it appears not all LANC protocals are the same.
Thanks.

Re: Motion activated recording hardware

Hi, Gordon
Yes, they do work with the newer solid state camcorders, however since Sony abandoned the LANC port for the 'AV' port, a LANC adapter is required. I bought one of these from a company who makes them (and I forget at this moment who that is, but I can dig it up) and it worked perfectly, although a bit pricey for the adapter ($50). I used a Sony CX550V, and it worked like a charm. Solid state is a much better way to go with these sensors, both for the lower power requirement and the faster boot up time. (not to mention much longer record time) That said, I looked at some of the newest Sony camcorders, and several do not even have the A/V output now, as Sony seems to be moving toward HDMI and USB ports. The new CX580V does have the A/V port though, so there are at least some still utilizing this port. I honestly don't know why Trailmaster has not addressed the fact that Sony has abandoned the LANC port, and it seems like few (if any) other cameras with LANC play nice with the TM700v.. Trailmaster incredibly still tries to pitch their 'own' optimized video camera with their sensors, but it's a 8mm video camera (not even Hi-8!) Seriously? Just try to find THOSE tapes any more..... so that's crazy. But if you can get a Sony solid state with the A/V port, it'll work with the adapter.

Re: Motion activated recording hardware

Here is the company who makes the A/V adapter cables. Looks like they now have a new one w/o the composite jumper attached (which you don't need for the LANC connection to the TM700v), for less money. (wish they had this one before!)

Re: Motion activated recording hardware

Hey, Gordon! I just noticed you're up there in Pincher Creek! How are things up there these days? I spent quite a bit of time in the Crow's Nest Pass area some years ago.... drop me an e-mail if you like. Maybe we know some of the same people up there.

Re: Motion activated recording hardware

I may have been a little premature in stating that not all the new Sony camcorders have the A/V port... I was going of the specifications for various models listed on B&H's website. But I got to thinking about it, and it seemed odd that they wouldn't have some sort of composite output (and the A/V port combined the LANC functions with the composite outputs) so I went to Sony's site, and found that several of the cameras listed on B&H which DON'T mention the A/V port do in fact have them. I'm not surprised, actually, and should have checked this against Sony's website before commenting on it. So the bottom line is make sure any camcorder has the A/V port, and it appears this may be most if not all 'new' Sony camcorders (including the NEX line) which do in fact have this port according to Sony's website. I can't confirm this w/o actually seeing the specific models and making sure the port is the same configuration as the cameras I've personally tested though.

Re: Motion activated recording hardware

Hi Derek
Thanks for the info it sounds promising. I've been holding off buying a new camera to try with the TM700v but now I'll have to start looking for one. I'm suprised to that Trail Master doesn't upgrade their camera list. I have the HC3 for one unit and an old DV camera for the other which I would like to upgrade to an HD camera. I was hoping the new solid state cameras would boot quicker and also should be quieter than a tape camera. They should work better when it gets down in the -20s too.
Thanks for the links.
It's been cool for the last few days. Having a little rain mixed with snow. Mountains are white but at least the wind has been fairly light.
Thanks again.

Gordon

Re: Motion activated recording hardware

One thing I noticed with my CX500v, is when the LCD is closed, the camera completely shuts down. It cost me the first few times I deployed the camera, because with the LCD closed, it wouldn't boot up when the TM activated, but I eventually discovered that there is a little pull-out feature to the eyepiece which turns it on, with the LCD closed. This has to be done or the TM cannot activate the camera. (one of these days I'll actually read an owner's manual....)
I think the solid state cams do boot up quicker, and are probably quieter, although the one noise that I have seen animals react to is the little lens cover snapping open when the camera comes on. No way to avoid that.
I do have about a dozen HDV camcorders (HC3, HC5, HC7, and HC9) models that I'm going to move cheap if you are interested.... yeah, they're tape, but they're cheap!

cheers

Re: Motion activated recording hardware

Yes that automatic lens cover is annoying. I've been tempted to fix that. I seen animals reacting to the tape heads spinning up on cameras that use tape so that is one reason I want to get away from it and another is sometimes I have it out in colder weather that I should and it's hard on the camera getting the head spinning in those conditions.
Thanks.

Re: Motion activated recording hardware

I am surprised to hear that trailmaster doesn't work with modern camcorders working on CF/SD cards?

We need something which can work with present day video cameras.

Re: Motion activated recording hardware

You misunderstood.... it does work, but as always has been the case, Trailmasters only work reliably with Sony camcorders. The new Sonys abandoned the LANC port, but there are adapters available which plug into the new 'A/V' port and provide a LANC connection to the Trailmaster. These work, I've used them with sold state Sony camcorders
