Do you have a list of some of the digital camcorders that PowerPod can control optical zoom for?

Camcoder makers don't clearly state whether or not they support the IEEE 1394 standard zoom command. Our experience has been that SONY seems consistently not to support it and Canon seems to support it in newer models. We don't want to go buy one of each camcorder to figure it out.

We know that the following models do work:
1) CanonZR series (Canon MV in Europe)
2) CanonElura series
3) CanonOptura
4) PanasonicNV-GS70

We know the majority of camcorders don't support it, so we're working on LANC control of zoom from the PowerPod. This will solve the problem for all SONY camcorders and a large number of others.
