IBC 2014: Zeiss Servo Prototype for Compact Zooms

Zeiss announced last week that they would be showing off a prototype of their servo unit for compact zooms at IBC this year and during the show I was able to stop by their booth and take a look.

Helmut Lenhof, Product Manager at Zeiss, was nice enough to take a few moments and give me more information about the unit. As mentioned previously, the servo is designed specifically for Zeiss' line of Compact Zoom lenses; an installation plate can be attached to each lens, allowing the user to easily move the servo between lenses as needed. Watch the video above as Helmut explains some of the specifics behind how the finished servo will work.

Zeiss has had a line of reasonably priced cinema zooms for a few years now, but the introduction of the Zeiss LWZ.3 21-100mm takes things up a notch. The 21-100 covers a much longer focal length range than any of their other lenses, and is more than a pound lighter than its predecessors.
