It is a regular 3.5mm 4 pole (TRRS) jack cable so something like this 0.3m one is fine.

If you are using a Nano motor, the motor end is a 2.5mm 4 pole so if you want to avoid using the adapter then you can have a custom length cable made with the 3.5mm on one end for the AFX and the 2.5mm on the Nano end.

I'm good with knowing the style.

For US users I found this one.
Right angle on one side, so it will sit more flush on the AFX itself.

AFX is the long overdue focus control expansion option for our PBC system for BM Pocket4K/6K cameras. With AFX and its included handheld remote you can control manual focus of MFT/EF lenses

It's out there! https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/afx-autofocus-adapter#/ https://www.eoshd.com/news/exclusive-cda-tek-announces-afx-module-for-lidar-autofocus-featuring-tilta-nucleus-motor

Three days to go. The RAW shooting Sigma fp with the Baveyes 645 medium format speed booster is a little powerhouse. Particularly when you can now add ToF autofocus to that manual Mamiya 35m

Replaced all the cables of the AFX with my own. I also found the USB power connector to be  loose. Prone to losing power. So I made a little support mount that slips over the power connector and AFX control plug that keeps it firmly in place.

Loving the AFX so far. Can you get the setting for having it upside down, and the offset be made permanent? 

The invert display option will be saveable in the next firmware update.

With regard to the offset, are you referring to the offset option on lens load ?

Yes. 

The calibration offset has the potential to generate confusion for some users - and hence more support requests - if they inadvertently left it set on its last position so it will remain dynamic on lens load.

Is there a world where one could use the controller to fine tune focus after startup, and that offset be maintained until turning off.

There could be.

Another question. Are there other controllers compatible to the R1 that are ergonomically might work better. 

There could be one that we may release based on something that we previously did for the PBC but didn't release.
