Thanks - that's a good suggestion about presetting the gears, will have to play with that a bit. Maybe difficult to do in the context of a single camera shoot of a live performance though.

Yes, within the context of a live performance it's a little tricky. I often play a guessing game to figure out what my next zoom will be in advance, and if I think I'm doing standard zoom out/zoom in/zoom out/etc. sequence, then after finishing the zoom I let the zoom motor creep very slightly/slowly in the other direction, which helps minimize the gear gap for the next zoom. Every camera/rear zoom combo will be a little different (for my ex1 I have an old bebob zoe rear zoom control) so hopefully you can figure out a routine that works. I find myself using the EX1 fairly often when shooting Off-Broadway (or even Broadway) shows, usually with an F3 as a full stage lockoff. Now that shows are using fewer old-style tungsten lekos (so less IR issues between cameras) the color and gammas of the EX1 and F3 can be made to match surprisingly well using just the PP settings.
