Lance Control

I may have missed it but, what lance control are you using with th FX-7? I have an older Bogen / Manfrotto 521 control but it shuts the camera down. I need one that works in that price range? Any help!? Thanks!

Zoe DVXL works great with my V1 (which is just a posh FX7).

It's not the most robust (the adjustment wheel seems to be a bit vulnerable) but if you take care, it does everything you need and feels really good to use in my opinion.

I think it's about $50 more than the Bogen.

I believe that is a well-documented bug that Manfrotto has addressed. If you contact them they should fix or update the 521 for you.

I use 521s on my FX7s with no problems. I use 523Pros on my FX1s.

I have a couple of Varizoom VZRocks that work with my V1 and Z1.
