Using a Canon zoom demand on a Fujinon lens

Here's the problem, we have a LDK-100 camera with an inbuilt topzoom (Canon). The cable goes to the normal analog zoom demand input on the lens so you can control the lens from the topzoom.

We mostly have Canon lenses however one of our wideangles is a Fujinon. I would like to have an adapter cable between the lens and the topzoom to make sure I can control the Fujinon as well.

I have seen these cables for sales and infact have a reverse one (Fujinon zoom on canon lens) lying around. Would it be possible to adapt the Fuji zoom > canon lens to be canon zoom > fuji lens?

Does anyone have the pinouts from both Canon and Fujinon lenses?

Sander,
Check out the converter cables from Varizoom to see if one of theirs works for you. I use my Canon controllers to control my Fuji lens with one of them.
