VariZoom VAVZPROL overview

  • 1Description

The Varizoom VZ-PRO-L is a lens remote control system for DV camcorders. A true variable speed and manual focus remote control, the VZ-PRO/L utilizes the Control L (LANC) remote connector to control almost any DV camcorder including the Canon XL-1, Sony VX-1000 and the DSR-200A. Now for the first time, owners of these camcorders can use jib arms, tripods and have the same type of control found on cameras costing thousands more. Combination rocker and speed control dial allows you to vary speeds in a single movement - smoothly from a slow crawl to fast and then slow again. Also features manual focus control, universal tripod/crane mounts and a record light indicator.

Precision variable speed control of camera zooms. Go from slow to fast and then slow again in a single smooth movement.
Push-button manual focus is conveniently at your fingertips so you can adjust focus functions precisely.
Has an LED recording indicator.
When the camera automatically turns off you can push a button and you're back in standby mode. (Wake up switch).
All in one, heavy duty, clamping system offers exceptional control over both camera and tripod functions simultaneously.

    VariZoom VAVZPROL reviews

    VZ-PRO-L LANC Zoom Controller is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 14.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome LANC Zoom Controller I bought this by accident. I thought my VZ-Rock Varizoom is faulty. I fell in love with VZ-Pro L as soon as I mounted it on my tripod. It works awesome with my XH AI, XL2 and GL2! The unit is well design. Its handle offer an extended arm on my 501HDV pan handle. The record button and variable speed control are well situated for ease of use without having to look for them. The zoom speed variable control is a much welcome feature that provide a consistent zoom speed... this is a big plus compare with VZ-ROck. The unit is bulky but very light. It does add some weight for counterbalance when mounted on my 501HDV pan handle.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lanc Luscious! Film a lot of sports using telescoping poles, where camera function control is a must. I had used Canon controllers in the past, as we use Canon camera's, but they have discontinued making their controllers, which really put us in a bind. Bought a Libec controller, and it did the job, but was lacking in many respects. Bought the VZ Pro L Lanc as I always like to have backups to cover for equipment failures. This controller is what I've been looking for. It has the functions that are important such as a light on it to tell you if your in Rec or standby mode. Plus it has a dial zoom speed controller that is very well located. Built rock solid too. Would recommend it to anyone.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Solid Controller I am using the VZ-Pro-L with a Sony HVR-5ZU and it works flawlessly. Very smooth zoom control and the variable zoom dial can be used actively during a zoom to increase or decrease the rate of zoom over a very wide range. This thing is build like a tank so it is not light, but my video head has a counterbalance feature so it was not a problem for me. I put a little felt on the inside of the clamping surface so it would not mar the finish on the control arm of my video head.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works like it should but... I've got a number of varizoom controls for Panasonic. All of them have pressure sensitive rockers. I needed one for a canon xa-10. Mainly for shooting football from a press box. I was disappointed when I found out it wasn't pressure sensitive variable zoom. I tried it out anyway. Although it works like it suppose too with the variable knob, I find it difficult for football. Although you can get that slow push with the knob and adjust the speed as you you need, football plays are just way too unpredictable and turning that knob back and forth gets old when I'm accustom to the pressure sensitive zoom. It's an awesome build quality I just wish it worked like the Panasonic version. I'm returning it for a libec control that has pretty good reviews on the zoom control. If you don't care about the pressure sensitive zoom then this product will work great for you.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I like it! I'm using the VZ Pro for sporting events. Having the record, zoom and sleep buttons next to the tripod handle allows for a higher quality ,finished product. The variable zoom knob is not in the best location - under the handle. My fingers hit it, unintentionally changing the setting. I have used it for 3 events since I received it and am very pleased with it. It comes with a bag and LANC wire so don't do what I did and buy additional ones. It has a quality and solid look.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smooth and Simple It is what it is. Nice, smooth control and perfect button positioning. Well constructed.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Unit I have 2 Sony PD170's and was looking for a handle mounted variable zoom for live shoots. The VZ pro L was recommended to me, and it really has worked out great. Not only does it function well, but is very solid in it's construction (metal) Not a disposable product. One I'm sure I will use for a long time. Also comes with a nice travel bag - a nice touch.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very useful product This toggle zoom has been great for recording shows and concerts in that it provides nice smooth pushes both in and out with a zoom speed dial control. It's perfect for the Canon XF 100 and has a nice comfortable cushion surface on its handle to grasp onto when handling. Overall easy to use and well worth the money.
