The Manfrotto SYMPLA HDSLR Clamp-On Remote Control
These are the world's first true electronic HDSLR remote controls. By interfacing with camera and lens firmware directly, these two units promise real innovation in the field of HDSLR filming: they circumvent the need for any physical interface between follow-focus equipment and the camera lens, and instead wire directly into the camera body to use the internal focus control systems. The advantages are obvious: lenses can be swapped easily without extra hardware or adjustment, nothing jolts the camera unexpectedly during follow-focus, one-man camera operation is easier, and control at a distance is as simple as extending the cable between the camera and the remote.
By interfacing with the camera's protocols, not only focus control operation as in- and out- focus point pre-sets, one-touch auto-focus and focusing speed can be managed by the remote control unit... many other camera functions can also be operated, including record start & stop, photo/video switching and shutter release, live view, digital zoom, aperture and exposure, ISO settings and more besides, depending on the version.
There are two models of remote control: a basic, compact clamp version, and a deluxe joystick control with built-in LCD screen. Differences aside, both models are perfectly integrated into the SYMPLA system, fitting comfortably on (or in place of) an Adjustable Handle and allowing fingertip control of key camera functions without moving the hand from the grips, in turn making support more stable and secure. Both models are also future-proof, with USB connections to allow occasional firmware upgrades. The USB connection is also what plugs into the HDSLR camera body in order to command it.

- Fulfil at least one of the following employment criteria:
- In regular, permanent employment.
- Retired from regular employment - With a minimum age of 50.

Note: All applicants will be subject to a credit reference check by the lender.
The approval of your application depends on your financial circumstances and borrowing history. Warehouse Express Ltd trading as Wex Photo Video act as credit broker and not the lender. Barclays Partner Finance act as the lender.
Can I repay early? If so how?
No repayments are scheduled in the initial six-month deferral period. However, it is possible to pay off the loan, either by way of a lump sum or in smaller amounts. If the loan is fully repaid within the six-month deferral period, then no interest is payable, but a £29.00 early-settlement will be incurred. Such repayments may be made to Barclays Partner Finance by cheque, debit card or standing order. Unfortunately it is not possible to set up a direct debit within the deferral period. Further information on how to make such repayments will be set out in the loan agreement pack provided by Barclays Partner Finance.
What happens if I don't repay within the first six months (deferral period)?
Following the six month deferral period, Barclays Partner Finance will initiate a monthly direct debit payment for the remaining duration of the loan. Interest will be charged at a rate of 19.9% APR on outstanding balances (backdated to the first date of the loan). Late payment penalties and early repayment charges will apply from this point. Barclays Partner Finance will send a reminder letter approximately one month before the six month deferral period is due to elapse. Note: If you chose to spread the cost and pay monthly, interest is charged from the start of the loan, not from the start of the repayment period.
What will I receive from the finance provider (lender)?
Barclays Partner Finance will send a loan agreement pack approximately four weeks after delivery of the goods, confirming that the account has been activated and, from this point, it is possible to make repayments against the loan. You will also receive reminder letters and text at the end of the deferral period to remind you when your first payment is due.
