Normally, zooming during a shot is discouraged, but that's only because it takes special equipment to execute a cinematic-looking zoom. Enter the Preston Micro Force V+F3. The industry standard zoom controller. If you've seen a zoom in a good film, then chances are it was executed with the Micro Force. Yes, they sell a digital version, but many operators still prefer the organic feel of this analog version. Includes the V+F3, Heden M26T Analog Motor, Duclos Swing Away Bracket, Preston pan arm bracket that slides onto the handle of most tripods (18mm and 3/4" size tubes), two sizes of drive gears, and cable.
