Bino, How is the Varizoom C100 lanc with focus sensitivity? Also is focus control limited to certain lenses? I guess its hit and miss with focus working on Metabones mounted EF lenses?
I manually focus but would love to use a controller sometimes particularly when using a 500mm which I use for wildlife shots, as the focus ring is further to reach.
The larger remote control box by Cinegearpro is also an option for me but might be overkill, although the AF function sounds interesting.
Iris, focus and record functions on the tiller bar would be welcome.
Ultimately I will probably end up getting a different camera to film wildlife (and yes I know the micro wasn't designed for what I'm doing) but I'm quite happy to see how far I can customise the little body and adapt for my needs, its so damn light and I love the image it produces!
Thanks for all your orders and support, We’re hoping for at least 20 to keep production costs down, but will estimate the cost once the pre-order campaign ends and we hope we are still able to cover the existing orders. Will keep you updated.
The focus rocker is very smooth. The focus control should work on all AF Servo lens so Metabones mounted EF lenses should work. I've tried other Lanc controllers and ended up returning them back to B&H. I've never tested Metabones mounted EF lenses. I tried to keep it very light by using MFT lenses.
I wish I could keep things very light, my back would benefit
I will prob pick up an mft wide angle for a gimbal though and if I stay with an mft sensor it would make far more sense to mount an mft telephoto like a Panny Leica 100-400mm amongst other possibilities.
Apologies to reader for straying from the threads topic...my bad.

Cool. Will sort the Rock c100 order once I've got the adapter in my hands.
Got my NP-F bridge today and it attaches very sturdily to the BMMCC battery bay, pleased about that and it took only 7 days from the order date to arrive from Japan!
