How's the rocker on that thing? You do smooth, slow zooms? I've been debating whether to get the Stealthzoom or one of Varizoom's beefier models. I like the small size. My bag's stuffed as it is.

There are other manufacturers of controllers besides the heavily advertised Varizoom line. You might check out my review of the Zoe unit at my website:

BTW. I get nothing from this endorsement. I just feel it is a very high quality product.

I have found the rocker to be quite decent. It's a variable speed type and frankly after a couple of minutes with it, the days of fast zoom were gone. A little practice with any piece of equipment goes a long way but this was so easy to master. I really like using it.
