Re: What Makes for a Good Zoom Lens for Video?

I find having the power zoom a real plus. For example it is not uncommon to have a primary speaker on stage defer to a specialist seated in the audience. With a lanc controller on the tripod arm I can pan tilt and zoom more smoothly and easily to the secondary presenter versus trying to do it with one hand on the zoom ring and another on the tripod arm. Hasn't been so much need since covid-19 but there was before and there will be again.

Much of the work I was doing had both a live and remote audience even before covid-19.
