Some third party controller might be able to emulate a slower zoom by pulsing the camera quickly.

Alternatively, do a zoom in post with your NLE. One way might be to slo-mo the segment, if you can accept any artifacts the process creates..

This thread got me curious. I just tested a Varizoom on my GL2. 30 seconds, just like Don saw with the ZR-1000.

That's always been slow enough for me... BTW, the Varizoom with the zoom speed control knob is at least very easy to control even if it's not slow enough.

Michael you got me thinking.

It would be real neat if one could use a LANC to control another LANC! Soooo... if one could slow down a LANC with another LANC - see?

But I guess all of this must be a function of:

#1 - Slowest Canon motor speed and resistivity

#2 - LANCS only being an END-of line device and cannot TAKE instructions.


Anyway, it is obvious I aint no electrical engineer, just a dreamer!
