Not follow focus, but still zoom related:


I'm looking for the ability to zoom and ENG lens while using an AR Omega.  Wireless is not an option due to the frequency spectrum already used in the studio.


This is for the operator to control and should be a gimbal handle mounted controller.  This is for studio use and will be used for along time.


My thought process is a Libec, Stanton or gZoom with a super elongated cable, with only zoom capabilities.  No need for return or comms control as the camera is a P1 with canon lens broadcast via RF.


Does anyone have the pinout for the 8 pin lens controller?

Does anyone have an existing solution which can be borrowed for testing or purchase?

Does anyone have any better ideas?


Thank you!

I had a Libec zoom demand with an extended cable that I used to use but now have a G Zoom with a plug in extension cable which works well.

The G zoom has the thinnest cable I ever saw, and it'll also give you the option to control focus as well with Bartech or G focus. I own three of them, and couldn't be happier...
