      Pro gear. Smooth take-off and landing, variable speed. But don't forget to unplug the cable when removing the camera from support. If you do (and you will because you don't see it from the left side!) the cable coupling pulls apart, (because it's an add-on adapter specifically for the EX1) sparing you the pain of breaking your 'lens remote' connector. Nice idiot-proof feature.

      Worked as expected, a bit pricey considering it doesn't have focus control. Comes with an adapter for the EX1, and there is no twist lock for the cable to the adapter or the adapter to the camera? I had to use Gaffers tape to secure the cable to adapter as a cautionary step. Overall it worked fine, and did what it was supposed to.

        The Libec zoom control attaches easily to our EX-3 camera, and simply works.
        Smooth zooms, and very ergonomic. Nothing complicated about it.

            Clamp: if fits to any thing, from the metal shaft of ther tripod to the big plastic handle.

            Zoom: slow in-out.

            I didn't need the EX connector. It fits directly to my lens without it.

            Fast shipping by B&H even for Canada, and they handle the customs papers themselves.

                Comments about Libec ZC-9EX Zoom Control:

                I was expecting this unit to give me a nice smooth VERY slow ramp up with the zoom but it simply is not capable of doing that. It is more difficult to get a slow start on the zoom than using the rocker on my camera.

                          I shoot with a Sony EX1R. This unit does exactly what I bought it for. Nice and compact for travel. Have yet to see how it performs on my 25 ft. crane. Should be great. Also will incorporate it with my steady cam and shoulder rig.

                                      I just love this zoom control, smooth like velvet. I think is a must for ex cameras.

                                          I did some research before getting a lens remote for the ex1r. I'm glad I did. The Libec works great! Mounts perfectly to my tripod and the zoom movements are nice and smooth.

                                            Used with an EX3 on a monfrotto tripod

                                            I find the option is have a record or return button very useful. Clamps securely, feathers the zoom speed.

                                              The pull out is terrific. Zooming in still starts out too fast.

                                                    The ease of changing this from one set to the other is as simple as unscrewing the knob. Very easy. The zoom is small and very functional...another plus!

                                                    What I wish was better:
                                                    Rercord button - I wish it was raised a bit more than it is. It is a bit recessed, so working with gloves on will be hard.
                                                    Stand by mode - either I can't figure it out or there is no way to put the camera on sleep or standby mode. This is a huge dissapointment and the reason for only 3 stars. Had it not been for this, I give it all 5. Maybe I will get some help here if I am missing something!

                                                          I use it with Sony EX3 Camera it is was working very good and you will be satisfied with it . Only one comment that the 8 pin adapter connection looks like little loose but it is working fine. I am very satisfied with it.
