Need Help Quick!
 
Hi, I'm trying to find a focus controller like this one: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produc...e_Control.html that would work with my Sony HVR-A1J camera. Does anyone have any suggestions? I just bought the http://www.adorama.com/SORM1BP.html thinking that that side thing was a focus pull and not just a grip. I need something to pull focus, but I don't want to lose the Sony remote I just bought, so if there is anything that would work just for focus and let me plug in an additional lanc like the manfrotto 521 does for Panavision cameras, or if anyone has any idea how to mess with the Manfrotto one so it will do what I need, please let me know, as I am desperate!

Looking into it, it looks like Lanc compatibility is pretty universal, yet all the sites for the Manfrotto 521PFI says it only works on two cameras, why is that? Shouldn't it work on my camera as well? What is stopping it, the firmware?
