fz1000 zoom controler lanc?

Postby halfpipe » Tue Jun 17, 2014 12:42 pm

I'll admit right off that the last Panasonic item I bought was a microwave oven (1980) I know my bad
Since then I've bought and used at least a dozen "S" brand cameras and camcorders but I'm mightily tempted to pre-order a fz1000 for video. In fact if they were on the shelves at this moment, I probably would have one rather than asking questions, I could count it's teeth (never mind):)
I do have a question however regarding zoom controller. as 100% of my shooting is cam on tripod and panhandle which requires some sort of wired zoom controller either thru lanc, a/v in or usb. Do you panny gurus figure such will be accomadated on said cam?

My guess is that the wired remote will be for shutter release only. But wireless should offer zoom control. Would that work for you?

P.S. as an aside: you know this camera is huge, right? I realize you'll be using it on a tripod, so size won't be that critical, but just in case you haven't looked into it...

P.P.S. you realize that 4k video entails an additional ~50% crop, right? Given that the sensor is already on the border of being not-so-large, the additional crop takes it down to kinda small. (around 2/3 size) And the lens becomes a not-so-wide 37mm at its widest.
