These commands were not in the SDK but were explained to me by Dave Maddlone who got them from the source code of his camera control pages. They are not present in my control pages but the Android app I use does support goto preset.
30, 32, 34 (and probably more up to 44 as my Andoid app shows 8 presets) Set preset 1, 2, 3 etc. to current camera position.
31, 33, 35 (probably to 45) Move camera to preset 1, 2, 3 etc.
I have tested these commands for presets 1 2 and 3
94 IO output high (DigitalHam addition – LED on)
95 IO output low (DigitalHam addition – LED off)
