      This thing is amazing. I bought the Canon XL-H1a and this controls almost every feature I could think of. A lot of people were saying in other reviews about the cable not being long enough. The cable is plenty long. I have the spider brace and did a cooking show with this it was awesome! Prefect for tripods. I do wish that they gave you longer screws but still another amazing product by Canon.

      We bought 2 of these when we bought 2 Canon XL-2 camcorders and are very disappointed to find that the focus and AE-shift controls do not work with the XL-2. We have an older Varizoom LanC controller that DOES focus the XL2's.

          I use it only for it's zoom function and that seems to work flawlessly on my XF300. Remote zooms aren't exciting, but definitely a usefull tool

            Comments about Canon ZR-2000 Zoom Remote Control:

            Ordered this to the new XF105 for better control off camera. Only had it a couple days however I can see that there's a huge benefit in shooting outdoors in bright sunlight. Controls are simple and very easy to use. Great addition for the return trip to Jackson Hole later this year.

              Comments about Canon ZR-2000 Zoom Remote Control:

              Great for controlling zoom speeds with much finer accuracy than either the manual camera switch or IR remote. Unit also assists with quickly switching from manual focus to auto focus, and complments the cameras ability to 'magnify' and 'peak' the image for greatest control. Unit's extension cord is quite generous! "AE Shift" does not appear to function, but may be user error. Will continue to explore. All other features perform well!

                  I am mainly a still photographer, new to video. That said, this remote is an improvement on the wireless remote and has many good features. A good investment. The exposure compensation ring works only so so but the other features are useful and worked well.

                      This is well worth the money, it is a great controller and works perfectly with my HF-S200, to the camera is limited to not utilize all the controllers functions, mainly iris control. I am pleased I bought this rather than a cheaper one. I may be getting another one of these for another camera rig.

                          Tripod mounted on pan handle makes operating the XHA1 camera easy. Unit can focus the camera in manual (Focus Wheel on the side of unit)and/or use the Instant Auto-Focus button to get perfect focus every time. Can switch between manual and auto focus control with a push of a switch. Zoom control works great with many speeds to choose from. The "On Screen" display button removes the on-screen info on an external monitor only. Used with a jib/tripod this is a needed tool.
