I want to use a Nikon Zoom Lens on my D7000 body in the Video Mode, and I want to connect up a DC "powered" zoom control, so it can be zoomed via the tripod handle.

I know there are some DSLR generic zoom controls out there, but I'm looking for one that's powered.

If any of you have such a set up, or know where I can buy one, I'd be very thankful for the info.

Thanks.

The only thing that immediately comes to mind is to add a delrin gear to the zoom ring, use a Haden (or equivalent) motor via rods, and a microforce (or similar controller).

I own this camera too, and out of curiosity I was wondering what lens you're using.
