Smooth Powered Zooming For Cinematic Movies

The Power Zoom Adapter PZ-E1 is a compact and lightweight accessory designed for the EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM to enable smooth, fingertip zoom control when shooting movies, ideal for capturing professional-looking documentary footage.

 Smooth Zooming

  • Zooming during movie shooting has traditionally been a challenge with DSLR cameras due to manual zoom controls found on lenses. The Power Zoom Adapter PZ-E1 solves this challenge, allowing powered zoom control when attached to Canon’s EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM.

    Variable Speed Control

    Zoom speed is controlled using the speed level switch and the zoom lever. Users can adjust zooming speed to suit their capture needs

    Remote Control Function

    The power zoom control function is also added to the remote control applications of smartphones and computers. Just like the unit itself, users can adjust zooming speed. (EOS 80D only).
