Please visit my website www.g-zoom.com I am in the process of making custom fit gimbal mounted zoom controllers (That I am lovingly calling the G-Zoom) with focus control as well. There are pics and a short video as well on my site.

I have attached a picture of the unit it is fitted for a master series gimbal.

Since it is in the description of your product Erik, I imagine you won't mind me pointing out that the correct spelling is "gimbal".

Eric,
is there any chance of seeing this unit on the west coast? You mention several models on the website but I see only one. Also, in the video I notice the the gimbal handle rotates at the same time as the zoom rocker. I would find this very difficult to use because If I am trying to feather my zoom while walking forward and booming up and down, I need the grip on the gimbal handle to be stable and and if the handle is movig as well, the combination of forward movement, booming and zooming on a handle that rotates woudl be more difficult.

If it works, the price seems right.

Colin

There is a unit out there I dont know if you know Mr. Andrew Jansen but he has a BFD model...also all models are the same the different is how they are set-up connection wise. The unit attaches to the gimbal the same way the J-7 does I was turning the gimbal handle in the video to show the unit but when it is attached it is like the J-7 but with a much more ergonomic feel to it.

Thanks for your questions.

I hope I cleared it up for you.

Erik
