Libec Releases New ZFC-L ZC-LP Remote Controls

Libec has announced a few new Remote Controls that can be used for a variety of applications such as controlling zoom and focus on many Sony, Canon, JVC, BlackMagic Design, and Panasonic cameras. You can also use the remote to Start and Stop video recording.

The new Libec Remotes are designed to be mounted on a Tripod Pan handle and can even be clamped onto the handle of a Gimbal Stabilizer. As an example, the ZC-LP remote can be used along with the new Panasonic GH5 camera to start and stop video, and when used with compatible Panasonic Servo Lenses, you can control zoom in and out remotely.

Product Descriptions
The new remote controls ZFC-L and ZC-LP are our most innovative remote controls yet. These sleek designed controllers feature an Invert Switch that allows users to change the zoom direction when the control unit is attached in a top grip or underslung position. Thanks to a new Double-Sided Zoom Rocker design, when used in a top grip or underslung position, users gain the ability to zoom with their fingers, not just their thumbs. Moreover, these controls offer users smooth zoom and speed movements by simply tilting the zoom rocker.

In addition, the connection clamp can be attached to round pipes up to 45mm in diameter, wide enough to even fit the HFMP Monopod center grip. Zoom controls are equipped with a REC Start/Stop button and a 0.7m/2.3’ length cable. The Libec ZFC-L is a Zoom Focus Control compatible with LANC (Sony, Canon, JVC) cameras. The Libec ZC-LP is a Zoom Control compatible with LANC and Panasonic cameras. With all the added features, applications, and benefits, be sure to take these handy zoom controls on all your shoots.

    @Jason San Agustin - I bet it would work with the new USM lenses like the 18-135 and the 70-300 that have the contact points for the external PZe1 power zoom controller. Only downside is that you have to deal with variable aperture.

    @Buster Cox, If you added some side handles, it should work ok, but the motor (since it's placed on the right side) may block the Port on a GH4/GH5.

    Would it be practical for a Zhiyun Crane? I have been trying to find a better solution for the handhelds....

  4. I just recieved the new ZFC-L and I used it on my c100mk2. Rec/ stop works well, focus feature is good but it is kind of slow. Zoom feature doesn't work on any lens I own. I wonder which lens they would work for?

    @Chris K. - For the new remotes, one will be for general LANC, and the other for Panasonic. The ZC-LP I believe will be for the Panasonic cameras. You can zoom, but you cannot focus with an external remote.

  6. So, just to be clear, the ZFC remote doesn't work with Panasonic GH4/5? It would be grand to be able to zoom and focus with the remote.

    I'm likely to be doing some run-and-gun interview work soon (it'll likely be me and the interviewer, no addl. assistants) and am considering what setup I'll use with my GH4.
