XL AT + Extreme; possible to lock zoom?

Is it possible to lock the zoom? I'm shooting with Letus Extreme, and move the zoom all the time by mistake!

Hej Jonas,

I use strips of quality gaffer tape to lock the focus, zoom and iris (or which ever ring I want to lock). You can use the position pre-set to which helps to control and retain the desired position setting for either focus and zoom.

The gaffer tape really works! And if it's black and tightly taped under the lens, no one will even notice. I have not found anywhere in the manual or on the camera to 'lock' or 'disable' the rings.


Cheers,
Janssen
