Shown above connected to two Sony v1 cameras.
The remote controls the power, focus and exposure, shutter, and zoom of each camera. The remote also has delayed capture and menu controls.
The timing lag between the two cameras is displayed on the second line of the LCD in
milliseconds. The initial
letter 'R' or 'L' indicates whether the left or right camera's flash
should be used when using internal flash.
The Pokescope 3D camera remote uses the "ACC" (or "LANC") port on some Sony digital cameras and on most Sony and Canon digital video cameras. Here is a list of compatible cameras:

How it Works|
The Pokecope 3D camera lanc controller allows you to take 3D photos using two digital cameras. The remote can synchronize image capture to much less than 1 millisecond. This allows you to capture action and moving subjects in 3D.
The 3D camera remote uses the power-up of each camera to synchronize the timing signals of each camera. The lag between the timing signals of the two cameras is displayed on the LCD display. Typically, the cameras will be synchronized to within about 0.2 milliseconds. This is adequate for a wide range of action photography.
Over several minutes, the timing signals may drift either toward better or worse synchronization. This allows you to obtain synchronization as good as about 0.01 milliseconds if extreme synchronization is desired.
When the synchronization drifts out of
the desired range or the initial difference is too high, you simply
need to turn the cameras off and on using the buttons on the
controller. This will provide new timing signals with a different
level of synchronization.
The Pokescope 3D controller provides synchronization much better than required for flash photography. However, only one camera's internal flash should be used to illuminate the subject. Otherwise one camera may record two flashes while the other camera records one flash. The LCD display shows which camera's flash should be used to illuminate the subject.
The 'L' or 'R' on the second line of the LCD display indicates whether the left or right camera's flash should be used to illuminate the subject. The other camera's flash should be turned on, but covered or blocked. Caution: When covering a camera's flash, be sure to allow adequate space between the light shield and the flash's surface so that heat from the flash can escape. It is often convenient to use your fingers to block one of the camera's flash.
