Wired control for the HF100

Professional camcorders often have an optional controller unit which allows to control the camcorder while having the hands on the video tripod. If you also want this luxury with your HF100 you might find a solution by the user "Modellbahner" at the Slashcam.de Forum interesting. Remote sensor and wireless control are simply connected by an audio fiber-optics (TOSLINK) cable.

No I didn't try it but I like the idea. I wouldn't be afraid of breaking something. As far as I understood it's some tin wrapped around the LCD in order to attach the TOS link cable.
