Hi
I want to buy a "zoom ? focus ? iris" control for my DVX100B. I found
two controllers. I would like to have advice from someone who tried
them (or one of them). Please tell me if there is any deference
between them and if there is a preferable one. The controllers I found
are:

1. Panasonic ROCK-DVX-ZFI
http://catalog2.pana...el=ROCK-DVX-ZFI

2. VariZoom VZ RockPZFI
http://www.varizoom....vzrockpzfi.html

If you have an idea for a deferent one of the above, please tell me.
Thanks a lot.
Yaron

I've not used either one but the varizoom looks better. It looks easier to both zoom and pull focus at the same tiime - very useful. I like the wheel control too.

Have a look at the www.creativevideo.co.uk site - I think there are other controllers available...

Regards.
