        Everything the product promises to be. Mounts to the pan handle and gives great control of the iris, focus and zoom plus stop and start.

          Comments about VariZoom VZ Pro-PZFI Zoom/Focus/Iris Controller:

          The unit is solid enough and strudy. I shoot a lot of weddings and needed focus/iris control on the pan arm. The buttons are well positioned offering good control. I'm very happy with the unit but think it was a little on the expensive side - still worth it though.

            Comments about VariZoom VZ Pro-PZFI Zoom/Focus/Iris Controller:

            I am an advanced digital media student at Bates Technical College in Tacoma and recently used this on a shoot at the LeMay Family Colleciton here in Spanaway, Washington. This controller works fantastic for a one man operation, can move camera dolly, keep control of fluid head by use of the handle and keep my thumb and fingers on the zoom and iris/focus controller at the same time. I have used the DVX-100B remote but not with this much control over the stutter/jerking movement so often experianced with it. I prefer this controller and plan on using it for a long time. I shoot in both SD and HD and this stays in my SD stable of supporting gear until I pass it on to my Dolly Grip, who is only 11 and learning from the Old Dog.

              This unit does exactly what it is supposed to and is built to last. I cant think of any reasons not to purchase it.
