ProZoom

Hi Guys,
Has any body tried the ProZoom 2 Digital zoom controller by Studio 1??? It sounds like a good unit, but how does it work with the XH-A1?
Thanks, Allen

Rob, just curious about a couple of things... does the ProZoom 2 support all of the features with the XH-A1, ie AF on/off? Also, does the zoom have the capability of ramping from a slow creep into a faster zoom? Would you have to start zooming at a 1, then punch up the numbers to speed it up, or does this not work?

The sturdiness of this controller looks worlds better than canon's ZR-2000, but if it doesn't have a zoom creep, then maybe it's not ready for prime time? Any other comments?

Cheers,

-joe

It supports toggling between manual and AF.
The zoom speed are fix. In other words you set if for zoom speed 1 the slowest speed and it will zoom in at that speed for as long as you hold down the zoom in button.

There is no rocker and for me I like that. I've had problems in the past when I have used rocker style zoom controllers where the speed will jump up or down when pressing the rocker.

I like to set the speed, usually the slowest speed and know that when I hold the button down, it's going to stay at the speed all the way in.

It is very sturdy, all metal construction.
