LANC is a consumer standard not suited to professional applications. The ENG-style lens on the HD100 uses an 8-pin connection common to most professional broadcast lenses.

I've got the JVC HZ-ZS12U (Fuji SRD-91) and it works very well.

The HD101 is a Pro camera so it doesn't have LANC. If you want to control a Fujinon lens, you need a zoom controller compatible with 8-pin fuji port on the lens. The VZ-PRO-L is a LANC controller for consumer cameras.

Since Fuji 8-pin is a standard that has been around forever, it should be easy for you to find a zoom controller, especially in the used market.

If you look closely at my post above, that is the exact same one I own. The JVC part number is HZ-ZS13U. It works well.

As long as there are 8 pins and not 12 it will work fine. The difference between the 91 and 92B is that the 91 only has zoom and REC, but the 92B has REC, Zoom and an auto variable speed controller.

I am going to buy one of these. Is there a reason the 92B would be preferred over the 91? or vice-versa?

I have the JVC focus controller on the other handle and want the zoom. I am using this for shooting stage shows.
