I have the little tabletop tripod that is made for the ZV1. It has a built in remote control. It screws to the bottom of any gimbal, so you dont need any extra hands. It is always on, so you don’t have to turn it on to use it. It has a movie button, a shutter button, and a zoom button on it. You can still hold the gimbal with one hand. It screws on to the bottom of any gimbal that has a tripod socket, and it also works with any Sony camera, and it doesn’t need a wire to connect it. I found using the gimbal controls a pain to use. The remote is a whole lot easier. Only problem is that the little tripod remote is pretty expensive, but I think a company in China came out with one just like it that is actually better, and a lot cheaper. the Chinese version has a remote that is removable, so you can use it without the little tripod. If I had to do it over, I would get the Chinese version. I’ll try to find the link and post it.

This adds costs, weight, length, complication. I bought a gimbal with a remote control: an ON/OFF button is not the Holly Grail, it should be pretty straightforward. I just want it to work.
