Aputure V-Control 1S – USB Focus Controller Review

Photographer and videographer Caleb Pike from DSLR Video Shooter reviews the new version of the Aputure V-control USB focus controller for your DSLR camera.

The new version of the unit called Aputure V-control UFC 1S has some improvements compared to the original, including better focus control (less “jumpy”), better build quality and improved firmware.

The unit not only allows you to control the focus but several other functions of the camera including turning on the live view, start shooting and more.

The unit seem to have some limitations – it only works with Canon camera models and if you want to change between very close and very long focusing range it could be very slow (the unit is better suited for smaller gradual changes in focus).

You can buy the new version on Amazon for just under $180.
