Hi All

Just wondering if any of the video/HD guys have used this zoom handle.


The ZiF100 version looks impressive but I am still annoyed that there isnt a zoom/focus/iris model. This model can give you zoom/focus or zoom/iris but not all 3 at once. Does anyone have a better idea. Jibs can control all 3, why cant that be squeezed into a handle for the gimbal? Any ideas would be great.

PS. Just finished a shoot for a CBS program called 48Hours. They were following a crime here in Australia and I did a weeks worth of steadicam for them. Top week, awsome crew, host was fanastic. Damn I want to move to San Diego and work with those guys more. DOP John DeTarsio is a legend!! Hope to see you in San Diego soon.

two years ago i played with that Vocas out at NAB.

Let me tell you... it did work just as great as their spec sheet makes it out to work. The problem is it does not work with all lenses. I think Band Pro rents them.

But this Vocas feels great. I wish they had the ability to talk with a BFD!
