I haven't tried one as I normally don't use the zoom lens with our XLH1, but I would imagine one of the LANC controllers from Varizoom would work well. They make decent products that are quite affordable.

I use the Varizoom VZ Pro-L. I've had it now since 2001 and it is still going strong. It allows very subtle control over zoom even while zooming thanks to the large zoom speed control knob.

If you are left-handed then check out the Varizoom VZ PG-L

Both are solidly built out of metal and made to last.

Good luck,

Thanks, I should have mentioned that I have A Varizoom PG-L which I used with my Canon XL-1s. I loved it, but it does not work with the XL-H1. I emailed Varizoom to see if they have an explanation and suggestions, but have not heard back.

Canon makes a LANC control for the XL-H1 that includes controls for peaking and focus enhancement but it seems rather flimsy in its construction.

Turns out that the PG-L is not reccommended for use with the XL camcorders. However, the PRO-L is and works just fine. The PRO-L is solidly built like a hammer - I got mine back in 2001.
