A bright digital display shows the speed setting and the maximum speed is set with a new rugged encoder. Zoom speed is controlled by applying thumb pressure to the joystick. The rugged Micro Force sensors give the operator precise tactile feedback for fine control.
It automatically calibrates the motors to the mechanical span of the lens, preventing accidental damage to either the lens or motor. A bright LED bargraph displays the zoom position. Electronic limit stops can be set with the touch of a button.
The soft stop feature allows the user to automatically slow the zoom a programmed distance from its end of travel. This is especially useful when doing a fast “snap” zoom, or when the user must both operate the camera and control the zoom at the same time.
