The Ultimate Zoom and Focus Control with Monitor Kit for Sony PMW-300/200 is a bundle from VariZoom that features the VZM7K 7" on-camera field monitor with HDMI in and out, the VZPGEX pistol grip-style zoom rocker, the VZFC-U twist-grip mechanical focus controller, and the VZDVRODS lightweight support (LWS) rod system to support the focus controller. The system is designed to work with select Sony PMW-series camcorders, included the Sony PMW-300, PMW-200, PMW-160, PMW-EX1, and PMW-EX3. The system is ideal for dual-handled tripod and pedestal setups, jib shots, and other scenarios where the camera's lens controls can't be accessed directly. It includes 40" control cables for both the zoom and focus controllers.
