$39 Lanc controller, Great deal! - Read my review

Markertek is selling these new Lanc controllers for $39. I just received mine yesterday. It works great and it's just what I've been looking for. I wrote a review and posted it on my website:

A good write-up Mark, on a good value for money piece of kit. The big let down is the single speed zoom though, and I'm at a loss to know why the manufacturer decided not to include all the speeds. A LANC controller is primarily a zoom controller for most of us, and this one doesn't fit that bill.

Thanks for the heads up Mark! Like you, I've been looking for a Lanc, but can't cough up $200.

Does it seem possible to hack this critter, and adjust the zoom speed?
