Getting ready to do my first Amira shoot tomorrow and can't seem to find anything that confirms the Run/Stop on the camera.  I have an MDR2, so will my Alexa Run/Stop cable that I currently have work with the Amira, or did they change the plug?  Thank you.

It uses the same 3-pin as the Alexa, so your Alexa cables will work.

The first release of the camera had issues with the Preston triggering the on/off. The issue was resolved with the port and or board being replaced in the camera. Keep in mind the camera only has one r/s 3 pin port.
