Lock only zoom and focus?

Hello,

I just got my SGPro and I was wondering if I can lock only the zoom and the focus (rings and buttons) on the XHA1, so that when handling the camera I don't accidently change the focus of the camera. Using the lock switches also locks the records buttons I believe.

How do others do it for their 35 adaptor?

Thanks

Use the zoom/focus memory presets so at the touch of the recall button you can instantly return to your zoom or focus points.

Thanks for the info. I'll check the manual how to do that :-)
I think it'll be better then using tape to 'lock' them :-)
