Varizoom VZ-PG-L (VZPGL, VZ PG L, VZ/PG/L, vz-pg-l) Pistol Grip Professional Control For All Camcorders with LANC Jack


  • The VZ-PG-L is a compact pistol grip style controller.

What it is for...
The VZ-PG-L is a compact remote lens controller designed specifically for the popular "prosumer" one-piece DV camcorders, including the Sony VX1000/VX2000, PD-100/PD-150/PD-170, XL1/XL2, DSR-200.

How it works...
The VZ-PG-L sends zoom and focus commands through the camcorder’s built-in LANC protocol, which is standard in all Digital-8 and most every DV and Hi-8 camcorder on the market today.

Where it connects...
Just plug the controller cable into your camcorder’s Control-L (LANC) jack. That’s all there is to it! Does not require any modification or alteration to your camera. Use The VZ-PG-L hand-held, or clamp the controller to your tripod pan handle.

VariZoom's new VZ-PG-L (compact pistol grip) is one of three new medium duty camcorder controls offered by VariZoom. When used with the optional deluxe clamp, this compact prosumer control was designed for use on our custom DV camera shoulder support VZ-LSP, as well as tripods and other camera gear. Light weight with a curved handle for a comfortable grip when used with the VZ-LSP or other shoulder supports. This control is already a favorite of many videographers. It is packed with all the same functions as our popular VZ-Pro-L. The combination zoom and speed control dial allows you to vary speeds in a single movement -- smoothly from a slow crawl to fast and then slow again. Also features manual focus control, a "wake-up from standby" switch, a recording light indicator, and a universal tripod/crane mounting clamp.

Built to last a lifetime, the PG-L is the compact, pistol-grip version of the Pro-L. Utilizing the same electronics as the Pro-L and in production nearly as long, choose the PG-L over the Pro-L if you have small hands or if you are left-handed.

  • Patented speed dial w/ rocker in pistol-grip configuration allows for preset or ramping of zooms
  • Centrally-located record and manual focus buttons
  • Power On/Off for toggling into or out of standby mode
  • Ergonomically curved rubber-foam grip for operator comfort
  • Heavy duty quick-release clamp system
  • Industrial-grade compact aluminum housing

VariZoom is the world's largest manufacturer of lens controls with the widest variety of controls offered anywhere. Our controls are used by CNN, CSPAN, National Geographic Society, Nickelodeon and many other professionals.
