Canon Power Zoom Adapter PZ-E1 for Canon 18-135mm USM Lens
When Canon designed the Canon 80d with videographers in mind, they also designed the Canon 18-135mm USM Lens. As a stroke of genius the Canon engineers also had the smarts to design a power zoom for the Canon 18-135mm USM to further make the life of the videographer just that little bit easier. Enter the Canon PZ-e1. Given that the PZ-e1 was one over $400, the new price of under $200 is surely enough motivation for a quick and easy decision to add it to your kit.
The Canon PZ-e1 runs with 4 AAA batteries. We would recommend rechargeable batteries and the brand would be Eneloop.
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.
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.
Zoom speed is controlled using the speed level switch and the zoom lever. Users can adjust zooming speed to suit their capture needs.
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).
