All goes well. I'll be able to ship new Expansion Boxes from next week. You can order them now in marketplace https://lavky.com/radioproektor/ Price for combined kits is slightly lowered now, but if you on high budget production and wish to support future development feel free to add $5-10 as donation by adding Optional Enhanced Packaging item to the order.

BMMCC Angle Breakout Expansion Box version 4 released.
Changes:
- Better quality ADAM TECH HDT15-PT D-SUB connector with gold plated pins.
- LANC ground wire now use BLACK color instead of GREY.

Work in progress...

And another custom made Expansion Box. This time i was asked to place Composite Video connector instead of DC socket connector. It will help to use BMMCC camera with broken HDMI.

Also in addition to worldwide shipping by Air Mail now i can offer worldwide shipping by UPS Express. Delivery time 3-5 days.

I'm interested in getting one of these.
Can I use it to convert the crane 2 out out to remote control a bmcc 2.5k?

This “breakout” box is just :idea: for the Micro Cameras, which has a DB9 connector for SBus, Lanc and power in, and other camera connections. This will not work with a BMCC 2.5. ;)

I still have a lot of Expansion Boxes, but #4-40UNC screws are out of stock. Unfortunately screws supply shipment was delayed more than 1.5 month due COVID-19 lockdowns.

Currently I temporary remove Expansion Box from marketplace, until screws will arrive.

Seems i have another delay in components supply. I am out of 3/32-inch Hex Keys and package with new hex keys is lost somewhere more than 2 months probably due virus lockdowns or too slow customs check. A lot of sellers from Asia are just reject to send small packages due too huge delays and ebay/paypal refunds. Total disaster.
Let me know someone know where to get those 3/32-inch Hex Keys. I guess those 3/32-inch Hex Keys are easy to find in US markets.

Thanks to research made by Haven Cousins now we have pinout chart for CGPro Remote Controller TRRS jack to Expansion Box TRS jack. So you can create DIY cable and use CGPro Remote Controller with this Expansion Box.
UPDATE: It appears that CGPro Remote Controller use LANC interface for Start/Stop, Iris, Focus and Zoom. So some functions will not work without LANC connection. Or as an option you may may build more complex cable - TRRS 3.5mm jack to TRS 3.5mm jack S.Bus and TRS 2.5mm jack LANC.
Image

Also here is another pinout chart made for One Little Remote Lite. It is based on research made earlier by Denny Smith.
Image

I also want to add some notes here again:
  • This Expansion designed to fit to SmallRig BMMCC 1773 cage and to dimensions of my other accessories. It also fits to BMMCC WoodenCamera cage.
  • This Expansion Box designed as flexible and free adjustable DIY device. It is not made for any specific single controller in mind. Everything is connected with tiny Dupont Jumpers, so you can open the box and easily change cables configuration.
  • All pinout specs and connection charts information available in this thread and in item description in marketplace.
  • This Expansion Box provides separate S.Bus (or PWM or Genlock or Analogue video out), LANC and DC power connection.
  • This Expansion Box uses 3 pole TRS jack sockets.
  • Note that CGpro Remote and One Little Remote Light Controllers use 4 pole 3.5mm TRRS jack connection that combines S.Bus and LANC interface in one cable. They will not work "as is" with this Expansion Box. However to use those controllers with this Expansion Box you may create custom made DIY cable (4 pole TRRS jack to 3 pole TRS jack)
  • I don't have any planes to use 4 pole 3.5mm TRRS jack socket connection into my Expansion Box because i think that it is bad idea to mix two different interfaces (S.Bus and LANC) in one cable, because it is impossible preserve free adjustable concept if use 4 pole TRRS sockets, and because TRRS socket is too long and won't fit to internal dimensions of this Expansion Box.
