The LANC Zoom Controller for Sony or Canon DV or HDV Cameras from Acebil is a multi-speed zoom rocker and camera start/stop unit. It allows you to bypass your camera's built-in zoom control and REC start/stop switch so you can operate the camera remotely. This enables you to opearate your camera on a tripod and control your start/stop and zoom without removing your hand from the panhandle.

The controller connects to your camera via the stereo mini jack and features a push button for starting and stopping video recording. The zoom lever can be used to control the wide angle and telephoto functions, as well as the zoom speed.

Operating the zoom lever on your camera when it is mounted on a tripod can lead to unsatisfactory results, especially when trying to zoom, pan, and tilt at the same time. With this hardwired controller, you don't have to take your hand from the panhandle to start/stop your camera or to zoom.
The controller features a 2.5mm connector and includes cable with a 2.5mm connector on both ends.

    LANC Zoom Controller for Sony or Canon DV or HDV Cameras is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Cheaply made This is the 2nd one of these I have purchased this year. They work well and have a variable speed to the zoom, based upon thumb pressure. But thats only when it actually works. Sometimes it just doesn't work or the trigger sticks. Then this newer version comes with a little red light that will turn on when you push the button. This seems like a nice feature EXCEPT, the button is not relative to actually recording. If you push the button before your media device is prepped the light will be on, so be careful and check that your camera is actually recording. Bottom line is that this item should cost half the price of what it does. I would give it 4 stars at that pricing point and 2 stars at its current pricing point.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a great product. We use this zoom controller with the main camera at our church. We also have the previous generation of this controller on our secondary camera. They made two noticeable improvements over the previous model. The first is the record button. If we take the camera on a shoot and it is being used as a standalone camera, the record button acts as a tally light. Not a groundbreaking improvement, but as an end-user of both products I noticed the improvement and appreciate it. The second improvement is the cable. The cable that connects this controller to the camera is a coiled cable. It makes the whole setup look nicer and you don't have all of the extra cable length to contend with. It has been a solid and reliable piece of hardware and as long as I have cameras that are compatible, I will not hesitate to purchase more of them.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Cheap cheap cheap I bought 4 of these, and only 1 works after a year of use. I recommend you look elsewhere.
