The ProZoom™ 1 Digital Zoom Controller is a basic zoom controller giving you controls for recording, zooming, focus and variable zoom speed. As with our other zoom controllers, the ProZoom 1™
is a professional grade zoom controller (also known as a LANC Controller or LANC Controls), that has been professionally engineered and microprocessor built to provide you with a precision (zoom controller) camera remote and the ability to
achieve super smooth zoom speeds every time. No more having to reach around your camera to zoom in or out, or to change the focus or to stop or start the video taping. Simply plug the zoom controller into the LANC jack that is found on most Canon and
Sony video cameras and you are ready to take control of you camera.
The ProZoom™ 1 zoom controller offers you a
numeric zoom speed indicator
, thus eliminating the guess work when setting your zoom speeds. You'll know precisely what zoom speed you are set for, making is
easy to remember your favorite speed settings. If you are using a shot log, the ProZoom™ digital zoom controller gives you the zoom speed readout to record for that shot.
The zoom controller features silent push button controls are laid out in a logically manner, with the most commonly used zoom in/out buttons placed closest to your thumb.
With the ProZoom™ 1. Lanc zoom controller you'll have the ability to control the zoom in/out function, the zoom speed, the camera's focus, record/pause. In addition, we have provide two LED's so you'll know the status of your camera at all times. One LED
indicates if the camera is powered on and the other to indicate when you are recording.
The ProZoom™ 1 Digital Zoom Controller can be securely mounted to your tripod arm, jib arm or most camera shoulder braces. Installation is simple, just plug the ProZoom™ 1 into the LANC or Control-L jack on your video camera and you're ready to use
your digital zoom controller.
Unlike others, we didn't skimp on quality when building our zoom controller. Our zoom controllers are built using only professional grade components, along with heavy duty switches, to give you years of reliability.

"My ProZoom 1 is one of my best buys. It has traveled around the world with me shooting HD stock footage for the last year and a half and
it has never failed me. I really like the layout of the buttons. They are arranged so you don't need to look at them when using the
ProZoom. I have recommended it to several other videographers in the countries I have visited." Dale Leigh
"Anyone who wants real professional controls for their camera needs to get the Digital Zoom Controller. I just finished writing an article for a e-zine about camera accessories and I want to thank you for having the design intelligence as to put
the zoom buttons as the first buttons your thumb hits. The way you adjust the zoom speed, with the speed indicator is absolutely brilliant. The push buttons controls are quiet and solid. I really am impressed with the zoom controller. I will be
sure to recommend it to others." Martin T Beal, Austin, Tx
"I was shopping around for a zoom controller and I ended up buying a cheap zoom controller, boy was I disappointed. Then I saw your Digital Zoom Controller in Videomaker magazine and decide to give it a try. Your zoom controller is prefect! I
really like the numbered zoom speed switch and how with a push of a button I can go from the slowest speed to the fastest zoom speed if I need to. I have found this feature indispensable. I also like how the zoom speed locks in, so you can't accidentally
change the speed. while you are zooming. The push buttons have a good solid feel to them and it mounts solidly on the tripod arm. As a side note, I just got in your Mini-DV Shoulder Brace and XLR-BP Pro. The zoom controller fits nicely on the shoulder
brace and it a nice addition. After testing out the XLR-BP Pro, I am equally pleased with it. It is well made, with the placement of the controls and switches are well thought out. The sound quality is great, with no noise. I highly recommend your
products to anyone who is serious about videography." Warren Butler, Internet Email
"I love the Digital Zoom Controller! It makes shooting from a tripod so much easier. I really like being able to power up and down the camera when I need to, as this saves wear and tear on the video heads, tape and it saves on the battery life. I like
the sloped panel design and the button size and layout couldn't be better. Thanks for a great product." Michelle Lipco, Dallas, TX
"I am very impressed with your Digital Zoom Controller. I own a Sony VX-2000 and a Canon GL-1 and it works great with both cameras. I found that having the controls on a slope makes it so much easier to reach the control buttons. Another thing I want
to thank you for is using buttons that are just the right size. I've tried another brand controller and the buttons are so small that is makes it hard to operate. Once again, thanks for a fine product." Donald C Williams, Seattle, Wa.
"The Digital Zoom Controller is an AWESOME product!! We are using it in replace of a more expensive controller that we have. The controls are better placed and easier to operate. I really like the fact that the zoom speeds are fixed. We had too many
problems with other controller, we found it was too easy to accidentally bump the controls and change the zoom speed in the middle of a shot. Thanks for a great zoom controller and at a great price too." Michael Stanfield, Los Angeles, CA
"Now that I own 3 of your Digital Zoom Controllers, I wanted to let you know how please I am with them. I am using them on two Canon XL-1s and a GL-1, they work perfectly. It was nice to see that they are well built and the button placement if perfect. "
TJ Sutter, Internet
"This past week we have been working on a documentary for PBS. We shot it using 4 of the Sony PD-150's and we used two of your DZC controllers to control the cameras that were mounted on a tripod and a jib arm. The controllers mounted nicely on our
tripods and jib. We found the controls where easy to reach with our thumbs and they were comfortable to use. With that said, I would like to order 2 more DZC Zoom controllers. I will definitely recommend your zoom controller to others." Paul Whiting, GBC Inc.
"Just dropping you a line and letting you know that I am very pleased with my Zoom Controller. I have it mounted the Mini DV Shoulder brace that I got from you. It makes the camera so much easier to operate. I've also used it to operate a remote camera.
You were correct, there was no problem running 100 ft of LANC cable with your Zoom Controller. I will be contacting you shortly to get another one, so I can leave it permanently mounted on the shoulder brace. Keep up the great work." Jose Martinez, Miami, FL
