hey i would love to see how this thing works in great detail.. like a 3d plan or at least a proper schematic.

I would then build a version which is more compact and using ground glass not a plastic cd.

Could you please send me full details of dimensions and alike, and exactly what is needed.

My email is zac@mindfreeproductions.com

If i get one built, there is no reason i couldn't get more built after.

I use a dvx-100e.

Zac

ps. when you video the picture on your camera, does it come out upside down, and you have to flip in post?

Yeah, exactly, you get the picture upside/down, which it is a bitch to shoot, but you can correct it in post, today we shoot a xmas ad for a tv network with the adaptor, it worked prefectly, i will post some material when i get it edited...

i can get used to after a while, but still it is a bitch.... hehehe now... if i could get a pentaprism from a SLR camera, i could correct the image from the adaptor. just like the SLR camera...

I will make all plans in 3dsmax, with complete animations to download and step by step explanations and tips... remember.. this is a homemade version, something that you can make it fast and works 100% perfectly, from there you can improve it and therefore get better video (better ground glass, selective speed, correct image orientation...

A fast solution with the upside/down video is using a LCD monitor fliped out in the tripod, or the stabilizer... i will make some tests with my monitor soon as well.

just a question.

I have an old broken canon FD slr, if i removed the parts that run from the lens up to viewfinder, and blocked the light from other sections.....

well if i placed spinning ground glass at the end instead of the viewfinder ground glass... would that work... and then used say a diopater to magnify the image.... is that how the real mini-35 sort of works?

Yeah, give it a try... try first with a homemade ground glass... or the SLR camera ground glass... if it works, replace it with the spining one

I second to that.

I'm very much looking forward to your tutorial. I'll try to mount it to a XL1.

What modification would it require if it was to be mounted directly- that is without the
16x removable lense- to the cam?

Anybody been experimenting on this?
As for the XL1, it'd be much more practical, as the adapter could be made fit with the lense mounting mechanism!

I have been trying to make this work with a 35mm lens and I can't seem for the life of me to get a good image that is not croped. I zoom but my camera (pd150) can't keep the focus

You'll likely need a close-focus diopter on the front of your lens.

I will have the footage of the ad as soon as i finish it adding the 3d animation.

Thanks you all for the interest in this adapter, it is a great thing indeed... i have been working all this week, and the results have been superb so far. I want to make the better ground glass next week.


Peter Sciretta, i solve it using an magnifying glass from a wide conversion lens that i have, the first piece will manify the image without ruining it.

John Gaspain, my best advice would ask for photographer about it, but i found that 50mm lens doesnt actually make closer or farther the image, the 35mm will make it a little up wider, me for example i am using a 50mm minolta lens, but i want to try up 35mm... once you build the adaptor, try to find photographer that let you try some type of lens, then you choose which you preffer.
