We have the Panasonic PN-AJ-HPX3000 P2 camera, with the CANON HJ21EX7.5B IASE lense. I'm seeking information regarding the error message from the current CAC file for the above lense "can't initialize lense" Any suggestions or remedies?
I am not the product manager for the HPX3000, so am not really sure about whether this lens is in the list. If it is, the following trick might do the job.:
- The CAC function will not be activated
after power ON until the position of
Zoom and Focus move from one end
to the other. Once Zoom and Focus move from
end to end, the lens can recognize
its own position and start
CAC communication with the camera.
The lens should have CAC command capability to enable CAC function.
If the end of 8 digits serial # is “Q” and after (Q,R,S.T …), it is CAC lens.
Hope this helps,
