The Zoom Controller for Panasonic Mini 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.
