A manual, multi-purpose lens ring provides fine adjustments and precise control of Focus, Zoom, Iris, white balance and shutter speed. Fast, accurate auto focus is also available. In addition, an illuminating LED ring allows recording verification and serves as a tally light to make shooting smoother. Users can turn the illumination on and off.
