So far zooming has been a thing of the past with HDSLRs lenses not really being laid out for smooth zooming during a take. How nice that some is thinking of actually bringing that feature for HDSLR and large sensor cameras.

I just met Roland from VizTools who has this intriguing design on a zoom control for HDSLR cameras. This is a very important invention and seeing the design I can tell there is lots of thought and an ergonomic vision in it.

Roland said the final product is going to be smaller, but it looks like the battery should stay outside. He also mentioned that the motor would be improved to make zooming even smoother.

So far there is no pricing on the HandiZoom, Roland said they’re looking at a production time of about 9 months.
