I recently got a DCR-TRV900 which is scheduled to arrive next week and need a tripod with a remote control on the grip with a panning head. I have a fairly tight budget - anything over £70/$110 is really off limits. I was going to buy the VCT-60AV - fluid head, remote, good reviews, it seems perfect. But it is a very recent model.. Can someone confirm whether or not the remote control function would work with this combination of old and new?
I say to myself, its the same protocol so surely they must work, but then again, there is a big gap between the production of the two models.. I really dont know enough to be honest!
