      Comments about VariZoom VZPGL Compact LANC Zoom Controller:

      I have used this controller for almost a year with a Canon XH-A1.It gets regular use as I do a lot of conference and event work. Recently the rocker switch has become unresponsive when moved in one direction. I suspect a lesser quality rocker switch was used in it's construction and repeated use has worn it out. I will attempt to locate a replacement part from Varizoom. Zoom speed is controlled via a knob so the switch is a on-off-on style rocker.

        This unit feels solid, there is no mistaking the precision this unit has.. an easy choice if needing a LANC remote for you camera.

        The controls will take some getting used to if you are already using a different LANC type of system.

            I use this controller both on the pan handle of the tripod and rigged to a double handle hand held rig for an XL-1. It mounts quickly and easily!
