With that setup, is your only control of the camera transport through the lanc controller?

There is always a REC button on the top of the handle. I wish Sony had added one more REC button on the side. The one on the top becomes hard to reach when the camera is mounted upside down.

Doh! of course I forgot to mention that the top of the camera has a rec switch as the lens one has been removed.

Yes just put the tapa mount on and fit your Nikkor lens.

Around 220 inc vat and delivery and I got mine from e-bay:

the big difference for the Red, Letus, etc. etc. is that those use 35mm lenses & keep the FOV (field of view) the same as 35mm. the stock lens on the Z7/S270 is a 4.4mm to 52.8mm.

on 1/3" chips (ie Z1/Z7/S270 plus many many more cameras), 52.8mm is a telephoto lens (read FOV). 50mm on a "35mm chip" (35mm negative) is a normal lens (FOV).

more or less you'll be 7x more zoomed in on your subject if you put a 100mm lens on the MTF (Tapa) adapter than if you put that same lens onto the Red/Letus



ALSO check out http://www.mtfservices.com/ for the home page of the Tapa adapter
