        This is perfect. I use it with my Canon XF300' It does exactly what I want. Turn recorder on and off, zoom in and out. I really did not need a controller with all those other features such as focus, frame, iris etc. For the money you cannot go wrong with this. Plus, if the cable brakes (as did my old one from Canon) you can simply replace the cable. Great product.

          I use this with the Canon XA10 and it works great. Gives you a lot of control over your zoom speeds. I'm glad I purchased this.

            We use these wtih our Canon XF-300s and they work great. They are easy to use, so volunteers have no trouble learning how to use them effectively. The only negative I can think is that the plug will sometimes come unplugged as there is no retention screw that comes with the unit...but this is easily fixed.

              I film my kids at their track competition with a Canon XA10. Constant zooming and panning are challenging while trying to keep on target as the runners loop the track. This device works as advertised. Nice smooth zoom control. I mounted on my tripod arm easily. The rec button is nice as well. Don't have to touch the camera. I ended up purchasing a coiled cord, to keep less cord slack.

                Very helpful tool to add to even the novice in you in panning/zooming at the same time. Hooks on ease and is a necessity for anyone doing standup interviews or taking those scenic shots.

                          After many years of use, I replaced both of my zoom controllers made by another well known manufacturer. The permanently connected cable to each unit has shorted out on both controllers. The Acebil RMC-1DV Video Lens Zoom Controller solves this problem with not one but two 2.5 mm stereo mini jacks. You have the option of using either the front jack or the left side jack which makes it more flexible. If the cable shorts out you can replace it. If that's not enough, the RMC-1DV switches between Panasonic and Canon/Sony protocols, very cool. I rely heavily on the use of a zoom controller in my work. The design and feel of the RMC-1DV is much more like that used by broadcast studio cameras. The slow zoom capability is fantastic, much more precise than my older controllers. I will be purchaseing a second RMC-1DV soon!

                                We definitely needed the controller for the jib. Comees in handy, a little overpriced. There are less expensive ones I saw on other sites after I had already purchased this. First time using a product by Acebil, so far so good.

                                      I bought this controller to use with a Canon XH-A1s. I have a Cobracrane mini-jib and this controller makes it easier to control zoom and rec/pause when the camera is out of reach. The XH comes with a remote control, but I've found it to be inconsistent and sometimes difficult to work with (especially if I am working with more than one camera).

                                      My only complaint is that the controller only does variable zoom -- the XH has an option for constant speed zoom that I use more often. However there does not appear to be a way to use this controller with a constant speed setting.

                                      Overall it works as advertised and controls the zoom and rec/pause of my camera well.
