I use some prime lenses with my HDX900 and this means I can not use the remote on/off & zoom control that plugs into a zoom lens. I am wondering of it is possible make a cable that would plug into the camera where the zoom normally connects and trigger the camera via a switch that I would place on the tripod handle. I just need to trigger the camera to record. Thanks

Thanks Mitch, I emailed the same request to Jonathan Epner last week so will be in contact to order the cable.

Abelcine made me a cable and it works great. The switch is from an Aaton. Takes me back to the old days. Call them in NY if you need something similar
