      Hey, I own a Panasonic AG-HVX200. Somebody asked me this today, and made me curious…

      With this camera, of course there is a manual zoom mode, which allows free movement of the zoom ring for quick snap-zooms. But also, when you set it to Servo, you are still able to manually zoom with the ring, it’s just a little stiffer. The question is, does it harm the mechanics of the zoom lens to operate it by the ring when its set to Servo Zoom mode?

      It can if you romp on it too hard. It’s why they offer full manual. You’ll still feel a lil resistance but you’ll do no harm in this mode unless ya get waay out of hand. You can sense it. Use the force, Luke.
