use existing zoom control on EX3

Hi, I have a few zoom controllers from SP Betacams and have found this adapter listed so I know it works. Unfortunately, $100.00 US shipping to Australia is a bit much so just wondered if anyone had a wiring diagram and link to get a 8 pin female plug to suit the EX1/3?

The 9 pin male is moulded to its wire, so I couldn't open it. I think you buy it with the wire already attached. I could open the 8 pin female connector, the pins are marked with letters. These are my findings:
The white wire is connected to pin A, gray to pin B, red to C, blue to D, black to E and G (bridged), yellow to F, orange to H. The brown wire is ignored.
So if you find a 9 pin male connector wired according this colorscheme, you're set.
