Electronics of Aaton Wooden Grip compatible with Moviecam SL?

does anyone happen to know if a 35mm camera, specifically the Moviecam SL, can be triggered with the Aaton Wooden Grip (the ones that came with the XTRs)?

You could probably have Ray at Kinogrip rewire it and put an Arri rosette on there. He did a LANC to Arri R/S cable for me. Doesn't the Moviecam also use the R/S lemo?

So a standard Arri cable will work, whether from a hand grip, Preston, or Microforce. The problem is that the camera body has a proprietary hot shoe style connector for the handgrip, so if you're using an Arri style grip instead of the original Moviecam grip then you'll have to adapt the hot shoe to Arri rosette or add a rosette elsewhere. Weirdly, the original Moviecam grip comes in three short extension pieces with the first being their hot shoe to rosette, so I don't know why they didn't just put the rosette on the camera in the first place.
