Guys,
I am just back for Peter Abraham's Flyer school (Thanks Peter!) and neet to purchase a good zoom controller for the flyer. My cam is a JVC GY-HD250ch with 17x Fuji lense.
Any suggestions,
Thanks

If that camera has standard video lens connections you can check out the ZOE by Bebob. You'll need the right connector for your lens and an adapter for other lenses that you'll eventually fly. Varizoom might make something for that camera as well.

Good luck!

Hi

I use the Libec ZC9PRO which is only $230 @ B&H photo-video. It is switchable for Canon and Fuji, has record button and offers an optional 8 to 12 pin adaptor. It's unique clamp design easily clamps on to my Master Series gimbal handle.

Perfect for what I need. Here's the link:

I use the same and also the Libec ZC-3DV lanc version. Both on the Flyer without any problem.
The only thing is, they are bit bulkier (bigger) then the Bebob ones..

Best, Erik

Hey Mr. Mark Morgan! Hope you're doing well? FYI, I tried to order one from Stanton a few months ago and they told me it was a 6-9 week wait. So much for impulse buys! I'm using the ZOE and hardwired Bartech combo now which works fine but "survey says" there is a Stanton in my future since I really enjoy doing live work.

Take care!

Hi,

I use the Zoe, and it's great, but I'd go for the Libec next time for the build quality.

This is my all-time favourite, though. Sit down before reading the price. http://www.libraprob...od=vocas-zif100 It clips onto the flyer yoke, and feels great.
