The 522P is a dual circuit, progressive zoom remote control unit for the Panasonic AG-DVC-30, AG-DVC80 and AG-DVX100A. Built into a video head pan bar suitable for Manfrotto models 501, 503, 516, 519 and 316. The dual circuit allows you to choose between a zero power consumption 'analogue' mode for basic functions (record/stop and progressive min-max zoom via a professional zoom wheel) and a 3 AA (1.5 volt) battery-powered, advanced, customisable 'digital' mode. The digital mode gives you the record/stop function, and the zoom wheel can be used to control one of three preset maximum zoom speeds or a customisable maximum speed which you can set to exactly the level you want. The 'custom' zoom speed setting remains in the unit's memory even when batteries run down, until you decide to change it. In addition, for all options except the slowest preset speed, you can choose between progressive zoom speed (the further you rotate the zoom wheel, the faster the zoom) and fixed zoom speed (irrespective of the rotation applied to the wheel, zoom speed remains constant) by pressing the button once (progressive) or twice (fixed). An LED shows you which speed you have selected. The 522P also allows you to set left or right handed operation by changing zoom wheel direction. The 522P does not come with any parts to fit to the head, but instead utilises the pan bar clamp that comes with all Manfrotto heads.
