Anybody know the pinout for the lensport on the Panasonic SDX900 for VTR Start/Stop?
I'm building a cable for my Preston for this camera. My Varicam/Sony cable doesn't work.
Anbody know the pinouts?

Thanks, Ramon

Hey Ramon,

That's the 12pin Hirose correct?

The full pinout for the 12 pin Hirose on video camera bodies can be found in this thread, for reference

Looks like the Sony/Panasonic cable doesn't work as according to Mitch's post, VTR and ground are the other way round on pins 2 & 3.

Does anyone have any clarification on this connector and what pinouts there are out there for it?

Hey guys, I used my Sony/Panasonic HD cable on the SDX900 body and it didn't work. So it makes sense that the connections are reversed. I'll finish the soldering today. I won't be able to test it until I get to Mexico and the camera package. By the way...... Hakko soldering stations ROCK!

Turns out my original cable does work. So I'll be rewiring the new one and selling it as an HD START/STOP Cable if anybody needs one
