Hedén VLC-1L kit Rod-mount

Hedén VLC-1L VM35 Lens Control System

This Hedén VLC-1 VM35 kit is set up for standalone use on Sony FS5/FS7, or any camera with a third-party LANC controller.

With pre-mounted lens brackets the VM35 motor is easily moved from lens to lens within seconds, without tools. The bracket for mounting on 15 mm rods gives further options. The VLC-1L with adjustable top speed, override function and ramping make it an ideal tool for smooth and precise operation in high, or low, speeds.

The VLC - Versatile Lens Control system - for any camera

The new Hedén lens control system was developed with the user in mind.
We created a flexible system to meet new demands and the same system can be used to control either zoom, focus or iris. The 99 position top speed limit is easily adjustable from the hand grip or on the controller in order to optimize both creeping slow zoom or very quick movements, with precise control.

The motor override function lets the operator manually move the lens by hand in parallel with motor control without losing calibration. The system works stand alone on any camera with 3:rd party LANC controller or integrated with the Smartgrip on Sony™  FS5/FS7/FS7II by LANC protocol. Flexible controller positioning allows for good weight distribution.

Silent, low weight and flexible. Adjustable torque, speed and of course with automatic calibration. 

The controller power cable has a DTAP connector. If V-lock batteries are used there is normally D-tap out available.

If you are using the cameras internal battery, we can recommend the following batteries:

Swit S-8U63 with D-tap adaptor S-7105
For LANC control we recommend Manfrotto or Libec controllers
