I've found a solution to the missing LANC on the HV20. By using some velcro, tape, the remote and a toslink cable, I can fake it pretty well, getting some pan and zoom action without having to mess with the body of the camera. Got a bit longer a cable than I needed and mine works without the cap on the remote end, whereas the tutorial I saw still had it on. I'm glad it works regardless and look forward to using it. Might need to get a second cable for the steadicam and rig that up. We'll see how this works first.
