            I bought this product because I needed better zoom control for my HM150u. The remote lens control unit works as advertised, but it's an expensive luxury. Mine cost [$]. It's a small piece of plastic with a wire, so I'm sure they could have only charged[$] and still made a huge profit.

                    Comments about JVC HZ-HM150VZR Remote Lens Control For GY-HM150U Camcorder:

                    Generally the remote works well. I use the zoom function almost exclusively and it works just like the rocker control does. I don't use the F-Stop control much. The focus control seems rather slow to make changes and it is hard to get critical focus with it quickly. I find it easier and faster to use the manual focus ring instead.
                    Varizoom should have put some non-slip material or thin rubber on the underside of the control to prevent it from turning on the tripod handle. You have to fight the urge to keep tightening the screws to stop that turning but that's a bad idea.

                    The unit is pretty expensive considering that I pretty much only use the zoom control but for the kind of shooting I do it makes things much more convenient than using the rocker.
