After messing around with the AF100 throughout the week, I was shocked to find a lack of a handle record button. Maybe I’m just used to Sony style cameras but it feels weird not having the option. Doing tracking shots, its so much easier to hold the handle and go from there. The AF100 features a great handle and design, just lacks the button needed.
I was happy today when I stumbled across Darren Levine‘s DIY AF100 handle button. Its fairly simple as well, just adding an old walkie talk cord and monetary switch to the camera’s remote input. Seems to work well to boot.
