VariZoom VZ-Rock Overview

The VariZoom VZ-ROCK-PZFI is a zoom/focus/iris controller for Panasonic cameras with 2.5mm zoom/start/stop and 3.5mm focus/iris ports. It features matching 2.5 and 3.5mm connectors on an integrated 40" cable, and a brass clamp for attaching it to most tripods, jibs, stabilizers, and other camera supports.

The controller has a pressure-sensitive, side-to-side rocker for zoom control. The rocker offers a wide sweep that provides for a greater range of motion and more accurate control than throttle-style zoom controls allow. Iris and focus are adjustable via separate smooth and quiet knobs that can be operated by two people, useful for moving/crane shots. Furthermore, focus and iris can be used in auto or manual mode, selectable via a switch. The controller is designed to provide precise control over these three camera functions and also offers a low-profile record/pause button.

Will this work with the AG-CX350 from Panasonic, or do we need another type? Seeing there are several types for sale here.
Asked by: Filadelfia
I imagine so BUT don't know for sure - It works on my Panasonic UX-180 which seems to be much the same camera chassis - I tend NOT to plug in the focus cable and prefer to pull focus on the lens - Sorry I cannot be more definitive

The focus ring is way too sensitive when using this on a AG-DVX200. Any advisement on if an adjustment can be made on the controller or in the camera settings?
Asked by: Lee
The movement is too sensitive to use on any camera. You would have to put a much bigger knob on it to slow it down. With mine I don't use this part of it I do that part manually on the focus ring at the front on the fly ... far more accurate. I use it on my remote cameras but that is just about a set and forget function of it.

question

can i control VariZoom VZRock-PZFI Rocker Controller work with AG-UX 180?
Asked by: Anonymous
Zoom, Iris and Record button are flawless. Focus has issues. UX180 supports only 101 focus settings MF0 to MF100. The focus wheel changes the focus on the camera from 0 to 100 over only 1/2 of the rotation of the VariZoom focus wheel. The other 1/2 of the rotation has no effect. This makes the focus adjustment very sensitive and jumpy to set, and not well suited for live recording. In order to use the focus ring on the UX180, you'll have to unplug the focus and iris control plug of the VariZoom - rendering it a Zoom-only controller.

I'm using this controller with my UX180 and find ...

I'm using this controller with my UX180 and find the focus wheel is unresponsive for 1/2 of the wheel's travel. All of the focus is done over the other 1/2 of the travel. This makes the wheel oversensitive and hard to use for precise focus. Is anyone else experiencing this issue?
Asked by: Dave
I contacted VariZoom support about UX180 compatibility. Although their website asserts compatibility, their support told me they have unsolvable problems. Packing the 100 focus steps of the UX180 into 1/2 of the focus wheels rotation is the best they can do. He said they've tried everything to fix it. I find this control way too fidgety for use in live camera work.
