Which zoom (+ start/stop) controller?
 
Preparing for FS7 purchase, I wonder what kind of old good "wired" zoom controller (to be put on the tripod handle) does it accept? AFAIK it doesn't have LANC, or does it? Or perhaps the one I was using with the EX1 (from Manfrotto) would fit?

Edit: When I think about it again, a tripod handle zoom controller would be connected via the same socket the camera's own handle's controller is connected - just like with the FS100. So my question is now whether this socket is LANC-compatible?

Yes, the FS7 uses a LANC interface and should work with other controllers, but I don't have any LANC controllers to actually test this myself.

Thanks for the confirmation, Doug.
