Like a camera, the EF12 has an autofocus instead of a manual focus dial.
There's no zoom or lens shift, however.
At 6.9 by 6.9 by 5.3 inches, it's just the right size for something that can be easily tucked way until needed.
You can even use the EF12 as a Bluetooth speaker.
The front foot drops down to let you tilt the EF12 up slightly.
Not backlit, but it does have a button that goes directly to the settings, which is nice.
