  • The VZ-PG-C provides remote Variable Speed Zoom Control for all Canon Professional Broadcast Lenses.

What it is for...
The VZ-PG-C Series provides remote variable-speed zoom control for all Canon professional broadcast video lenses.

How it works...
VZ-PG-C controllers feature dual speed controls system for achieving precise zooms at any speed. Rotate the dial (at your fingertip, just below the grip handle) to set the maximum desired speed, then use the feathered rocker to smoothly and consistently ramp up to that setting.

Where it connects...
Just plug the controller cable into the standard 8 jack on your lens motor drive. Use the controller hand-held, or clamp it to your tripod pan handle or jib arm. Extension cables are available for longer runs.

VariZoom's VZ-PG-C for professional Canon broadcast video lenses give you the highest degree of zoom control for nearly every acquisition situation. This is achieved through the precision dual potentiometers and unique zoom handle grip. By combining a pressure sensitive thumb control with a separate but easily accessed speed control dial, VariZoom's VZ-PG-C provides exceptional control. Set the high speed limit with the dial, and ramp up to that setting with the separate, super smooth thumb control. This uniquely styled device relieves the operator of having to hold and maintain just the right amount of pressure since the maximum speed is set by the dial.

  • Precision variable-speed control over camera zooms. Ramp up from slow to fast and then slower again in a single move.
  • Dual speed controls with quick adjust access to both.
  • A pause/record button to control recording functions from your tripod handle.
  • Video return button to view program output on multi-camera shoots.
  • 40" cable is built in to the unit.

  • Heavy-duty clamping system allows operator exceptional control over tripod and camera functions simultaneously with one hand.

The VZ-PG-C provides remote zoom control for most Canon professional video lenses and it will clamp to any tripod handle, jib, or support bar. The PG-C features a dual-variable system for versatile, precise control of zoom speed. Set the maximum desired speed on the dial (located in a 'trigger' position), then use the pressure-sensitive rocker to vary the speed from a crawl all the way up to the preset max. Alternatively, depress the rocker fully and roll the dial with your index finger to ramp the speed up.
