Optura Advanced Accessory Shoe

The Optura 60 has an "Advanced Accesory Shoe", but is this the same AAS as the GL2, etc.?

For example, can I use an XLR adapter for the GL2 with the Optura?

Jason,

I was hoping the same thing for my XI but unfortunately it will not work.

Is there any technical information about the shoe avaliable (pinouts, etc.)? I poked around a bit but wasn't able to dig up much.

I could find out the hard way but I'm chicken to start poking the camera with my scope just yet...

Chriss Hurd actually asked a Canon Rep at last years NAB (I think it was there) and it was a decisive no for using the MA300 on the Opturas. As for tech schematics, I'm not sure where to get them.

Shoot, I didn't have to ask; I actually tried it. This was at the WEVA show last year. No go for the MA-300 on an Optura, sorry. Would've been cool, though!
