Canon Video Broadcast - Custom Zoom / Focus Controller...

This Controller i made ages ago out of an old Fujinon Zoom controller. I then cut the handle short and added a focus pot to the bottom of it. It simple attaches to the gimbal handle of the rig and you hold the zoom handle instead of the gimbal.
The added advantage of this, is your thumb doesn't get sore because of the low profile of the zoom toggle, as used to happen with the J7 and similar devices.

- Has 2x momentary switches for Return / Rec etc!
- There are 2x toggle switches on back of the unit to change direction of Focus and Zoom.

Worked great!
Havent used it for ages...

Has Canon analog plugs on it.
make an offer!
