I just used the stock Manfroto remote. The Nano is controlled by a change in the embedded time code from the HD-SDI output from the camera. When I review a shot, I am reviewing what is on the SxS cards - one glitch - the Nano records when it sees a change in the timecode again ( and records the reviewed clip again) but no big deal. Shape-WLB is located in your city. They do custom work and mounts - give Charles-Antoine at email@example.com
a shout. I'm sure he would discuss it with you - they are very accomodating.
