First off, let me say this thread comes after searching the web. After having Panasonics, and saving a lot of money by making my own(Good)zoom controller, I now have XH A1. After searching, can't seem to find any one who has made one. The cheapest is about $200, which will be paid if necessary, but am a bit of a DIYer. So, was wondering if anyone had an idea. Any suggestions appreciated.
