ON and OFF switch - C300 and many more

We have completed a button for the BWG / BCG and a cable with a LANC micro controller.  This board will work with any camera that takes a LANC signal, I have tested it on a C300 see below.
This same cable it will also trigger, the BMC,  C100 and C500.  With a different cable the button will trigger the Alexa.  We have a almost finished cable for the Epic and Scarlet but it will most likely require a rocker switch, I would like to find something that will fit into the opening for the button so you could just swap it out.  Sorry no F55.
I have a four pin Hirose.  This button is green I have a black and a stainless steel (+$10) buttons coming in soon, you can also get red, white, blue or yellow.

Lion for the Epic and Scralet

The problem with fitting the Epic on the Lion was the Power cable, specifically the Lemo which stuck straight out the back, preventing the camera body from seating in its optimal position.  A Lion owner, to which I am truly grateful, found a solution.  Lemo now makes a right angle 6 pin power connector for the Epic and combined with a AB d-tap, the problem has been solved.

I have added this to our product listings per your request,  NEW PART # RD1-PWR21-01

This includes the Right angle connector.

This will be available to all of our resellers, such as Markertek and B&H.
If you have a local vendor you prefer, they can purchase from us to sell to you.  You can  also purchase this through LAIRD direct, but that would be sold at list price.
