Been working with the #REC for a couple of weeks now, I have to say that it exactly what I needed! Initially I had an issue during setup but after an email to support it was quickly resolved. Being that I am just a single operator I have to maximize the TX channels, the #REC allows me to do just that! Thanks for a great product!

Works like a charm! And more importantly is the very fast online tech support! Good job Seagull on a wonderful product!

Hey, this thing works great! With a little help I was able to configure it to work with my RX100m4… my only hesitance to give 5 stars was due to the lack of documentation … not clear anyway, but if you are not a nincompoop like me with no experience with powering a UAV, then it would be simple (the installation is very simple)
I found that the #REC did take a lot of power from the camera battery, so I added a Castle 10Amp BEC to power it directly. Works great. The Seagull unit is very lightweight, robust looking/feeling, and was shipped quickly, with great customer support. So far is has survived being packed with snow due to a crash. Let’s have less of those please!
One thing to note: The RX100m4 shuts off 4K videos at 5 minutes. This is a brick wall. The camera will cease recording at this time when shooting 4K. If this happens while you are in the air, the SeaGull #REC will not be able to control the camera (at least not Rec on/off) anymore until you do a full system reset on the ground. So make sure to shot off each clip at least at 4:55 or less! I’m not sure if this is a camera problem or a SeaGull problem, but that’s the reality, so there you go.

It is a perfect module for Sony A6000. Easy to connect and use.

Finally, a substitute for the junky IR trigger that I used to use! The REC is so much more reliable than having to deal with fiber optic cables that mess up in bright sunlight. Virtually no lag on my a6000, which is huge for reliably taking pictures when I am doing aerial surveys. I can now fly faster and cover more ground with a faster triggering time. I can also go without the fear that I missed a picture, ruining the entire survey. Support is on top of things, they respond very quickly to questions and concerned. Thanks for an awesome product!

This product works great and has so many features! We used this to setup a camera that was operated by a separate person who could zoom, record video, take pictures, and control the gimbal. Worked flawlessly! All of the other reviews are spot on as well. Great support too! I emailed support once and received excellent help! Top notch!

Been using the #REC now for several days with a Sony a7s, a7s II, and an a7R II. It works flawlessly with all of the cameras. Excellent support and quick contact to help me get it setup and running right with a Futaba remote.
It’s surprisingly small with the amount of features they packed in to it and have used it on a camera crane as well as on a DJI S900 Drone now. Highly recommended and can’t wait to see the smaller/thinner control cable they said was coming soon…

A great product that was very easy to configure with my Sony RX100 mk2. Fast delivery and very attentive after sales support/assistance.

Works perfectly on the Sony A7 RII.
For Futaba, I had to change all servo outputs to ‘reverse’ in order to match my desired stick and switch commands.
B.t.w. the Sony A7 RII does not have timed picture option, but with Seagul Rec you now have!

I’m using this with a Sony RX100 III. Setup as per the instructions, and 30 mins or so spent adjusting the channel throws had everything working perfectly. Would have given 5 Stars if it and the flex cable were cheaper.
Loy (verified owner) –
A very good system that simply works!
Would definitely recommended this product to all who like to retain control of key Sony camera functions on the ground while the unit is airborne. Do note that you would require 4 PWM channels on your receiver to fully connect to the #Rec unit.
Another good point is that Seagull has also provided some very useful documentation on how to make things work. Chatting with their competent technical staff was also a pleasant experience.
Full 5 stars for this product!
