With the Rokinon prime lens, there are no remote controls, so you’d have to stage and light the entire shot before leaving the camera and entering the scene. The results will depend on how thorough your shot preparation is done, including the shot’s composition and lighting. The camera will record whatever is in front of it with or without an operator, but for on-the-fly adjustments, a dedicated operator in this case will be needed.
