Aputure V-Control 1S Review

A lot of people don’t think about DSLR control when they setup their shoulder rig. You really want your rig to be right on top of your shoulder for balance. The problem with this, is that you can’t control focus and camera functions easily. Thats where USB controllers come in. Since we don’t have LANC controllers available to us, we have to use either wireless controllers or USB versions like the Aputure V-control UFC 1S.

If you’re going to be doing shoulder work, than yes. This is one of the cheaper options out there to control your focus from your shoulder rig handle.
