Sony AV-R to LANC?

I purchased a small Sony tripod with the newer AV-R controller on the handle bar, but I'm using it with an older Sony camcorder that can only be controlled using LANC controller.

I see adapter cables all over the place for using an older, LANC controller with newer AV-R equipped cameras... but is there an adapter the other way around: AV-R controller to LANC plug?

Thank you,

Re: Sony AV-R to LANC?

i don't know of any, but it should be possible to modify your AV/R unit if you have some basic soldering skills and access to a Radio Shack for a plug. The big challenge was getting an older 1/8" plug to work in the AV jack, the other way around should be pretty simple.

There are a couple schematics floating around the internet, and I have my notes about the pinouts here if you need to know what pins need to go to what lugs.

Just out of curiousity, what model camera?

Dave,

Thanks for the offer; yes I would appreciate if you post or email me the pinout.

The tripod is a Sony VCT-60AV and I will be using it with a Sony PD150 oldie/goodie.

Thank you,
