I wish the answer and option would be a simple one, but unfortunately the newer Sony camcorders are not compatible with your housing, they changed the type of connector that send both the remote and video signal in one. Also Sony has removed the on screen display info. when using an external video source as the rear monitor back on the housing. At this point I would suggest selling your housing and video kit and investing in a newer system.

Unfortunately no newer camcorders would work in the Phenom FXZ1, it was solely designed to accommodate the electronics and mechanical aspects of the Sony FX1 & Z1 camcorders.
