I am working on a research application that requires me to have precise control of the zoom using a computer program. What that means is that I would need to:
I am currently expirimenting with a serial LANC controller, but to my knowledge LANC does not offer any zoom feedback. I am also aware of mechanical servo zoom controllers but would like to stay away from those if possible.
Is there anyway to interface (other than LANC) in such a way that I have real time knowledge of the zoom level (non-visual) and the ability to control zoom to specific levels?
