The end of the cable splits into two parts with 2.5mm submini-jack and 3.5mm mini-jack on each end. When using Panasonic cameras, simultaneous control of zoom and focus can be achieved by plugging 2.5mm and 3.5mm jacks into the zoom and focus terminals, respectively.
When the remote terminal Ø3.5 (focus for Panasonic) is connected to the Panasonic cameras released after August 2009, manual mode is not available as the iris is fixed to the auto mode. To use the iris in the manual mode, please operate the focus on the camera without connecting the remote terminal Ø3.5.
