Tribute to the 35mm lens adapter

I just want to post this clip which I made using a DIY spinning adapter as a sort of tribute to the DIY spirit started by this thread which inspired me to start making mine in 2004.


Shot with JVC HD200 with 2 lenses, a 50 and 80-200.

Originally intended only as an audition reel, this clip was selected to represent my province for the first time in a Film Festival in the capital of my country last week, Cinema Rehiyon 2010.

Ted.


A fitting tribute.

Has the medium format adaptor gone back into the back storeroom with all the old plate camera bits and pieces for the grandchildren to discover one day or do you still use it?

Hi Bob!

I have finally put together a Camera museum, on our 2nd floor, since schools often come for a visit, I got tired of setting the old cameras out and putting them away after the tour,
I have on display and cataloged different cameras that our family have used, the oldest which is a hundred year old korona from manchester optical and some glass plate negatives I managed to rescue.

I have a glass case reserved for the MID FORMAT adapter prototype that I made in 2004, I think it deserves a place in our history that once upon a time such devices were contrived to help filmmaker achieve the DOF control not possible with the prosumer lever cameras of the time.

Having used the canon 7d on several high paying high profile projects recently, I think the phase of the adapter is coming to an end. It deserves its own glass showcase.

Ted

Re: Homemade 35mm Adapter

A bit of a venture in history back I dug up off an old drive. Who back then would have thought that 35mm adaptors would have become feather dusters so soon.


I shot this short assembly of behind-the-scenes shots of a local indie low-budget project on a home made flip 35mm adaptor I called the AGUS35APVE. It was mounted onto a Sony HVR-Z1P camera with 12mm - 24mm Nikon, and 50mm and 85mm Nikon primes. For my own curiosity, I desaturated and roughly graded the image for the sort of cold hard look I thought would fit the fight scenes.

The fiklm-makers kept the look of the JVC GY-HD101 camera they shot the project on.

Re: Homemade 35mm Adapter

For a bit of a reminisce to history back - how few years it has been. The groundglass adaptors discussed on this forum established a general consumer discontent with 1/3" sensors, then the digital cinema cameras had their genesis here on dvinfo and gave the big players that final message that developmental holdback was not going to cut it anymore.

Anyway, here's some student clips shot on the original Sony DSR PD150 and an AGUS35 homemade 35mm groundglass adaptor in 2005.





All the best to everyone for the rest of the New Year.

Tsai.

This is the thread which started the whole alternative 35mm adaptor thing off. P+S Technik's Mini35/Pro35 series were the initial benchmark The final evolutions of the alternative products were capable of coming up to or meeting 2K real world resolution if very carefully managed.
