I'm just clearing out a load of kit and came across a J7 Zoom control with Fuji pins. Im looking to sell this in the very near future so plugged it into one of my cameras to check it out. The zoom works perfectly and the start/stop button works fine. My query is that when I plug the cable in for the first time it runs the camera. I can turn it off with the switch and everything works fine from then on, its just that initial input that seems to set the run off. Is this normal?
I would have presumed that the switch was also a direction changer for the controller but at the moment it isnt doing that. without the manual Im a little blind and wouldn't want to sell knowing it had a possible fault.

Any help much appreciated.

I was under the impression that both switches were in fact run switches, with the pusbutton one being reassignable to do radio return. Try changing the switch position and plugging it in.

Hi Alex,
Looks like you were right, they are both run switches. Tried changing the direction of the button before plugging in and that stopped it from running the camera when plugging in.
Many thanks, I can happily list the remote.
