The 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. You can control zoom, focus or iris with the system. The motor mounts on 15mm rods, and can easily be moved between the lenses in seconds. No need for tools or disconnecting cables.

The top speed of the motor allows for very quick zoom or focus, but still with very good control. The speed limit is easily adjustable from the hand grip or on the controller in order to do really slow or really quick movements. Still with very good control.

The motor override function let you control the lens by hand in parallel with motor control without loosing calibration.
Works stand alone on any camera with 3:rd party LANC controller, integrated with the smartgrip on Sony™  FS5/FS7/FS7II by LANC protocol.
