Re: Maxell CD-R???

<<<-- Originally posted by Jeremiah Rickert : Someone posted that the blue 25 pack of maxell cd-r's came with the frosted CDs. What is the spindle called precisely?

I picked up a blue maxell spindle, and it was $25, and of course when I cracked it open, no frosted CDs. They were called CD-R Pro and they were the only blue spindles at Office Max and Staples.

So....what's the precise name of the CD-R's with the frosted CD?

Thanks!

Jeremiah -->>>

Jeremiah,

I also almost made the same mistake. The packages are very similar, but it is the Blue 50 pack that says Maxwell CD-R only...NOT PRO. If you look through the top you should be able to see that there is a different CD on the top that is "fuzzy" rather than clear. I picked mine up at Wal-Mart of all places after not finding it at Best Buy, Office Depot or Target. Good Luck, and you won't be dissappointed when you get it!

check this site. i think that it will be dificult to find proper +10 macro 37mm. maybr the solution is to buyadapter ring bigger than 37. i beleive that it's easier to find larger macro lens (49,52,58 etc...)

but anyhow - check this site. i didn't checked it properly, but just find it a while ago.

Jim.

Lots of work obviously went into creating a very comprehensive tutorial.

Commendations are the order of the day here.

Folks. Chris has put the 16:9 comparison .jpg up for me at www.dvinfo.net/media/hart. You'll find it as aguswscr.jpg

The images were made with a Century Optics 16:9 anamorphic adaptor offered up to the front of the 35mm type lens. The right side image pair has scratches. Ignore those. I forgot to switch the groundglass on.

Thank you Filip however I was unable to find the lenses there. However I did some searching and found a lens set.

http://www.bugeyedigital.com/product...tif-02005.html

Not that expensive and can be used as just a +7, +10 or in combination as a +17

Good for anyone using Sony single chip cameras that have 37mm threading.

My JVC has a 27mm threading but I bought a step up ring off ebay for $5.50.

I found this site through this guys review of the filters:

Bob Hart,

I am sorry that I have not kept up with all of your posts, but could you drop an answer to if you are using real ground glass or not? Or, direct me to the page where you answered this? I know you have been working on it...thanks in advance.

Clay

Paul and Bob - thank you for your kind words.

I intend on keeping this tutorial up for quite some time, improving it as time allows, but keeping it at the same general locale - http://ideaspora.net/agus35 - so feel free to link away. I wouldn't mind if you mention my name on your page, though - Jim Lafferty - I'm making every effort I can to be recognized as a filmmaker and so every bit counts :)

As for this question:

Quote:
Where did you get the parts for connecting the lens and the GL1 Jim?
The short answer is Home Depot. The long answer is I can't remember whether it was the plumbing section, or the electrical section of the store, but I spent a lot of time and quite a few trips getting all my parts. For the GL1, a conduit hub measuring 2.5 inches works perfectly -- for SLR lenses, a 2 inch hub works well.

Incidentally, as I'm building my rail system, a heads-up to any of you ambitious enough to make them on your own - Home Depot has a little nook with threaded rails that measure in lengths from one to six feet, with diameters of either 5/16ths or 3/8ths being best for our purposes.

I'm going with 5/16ths and pairing the rails with corner braces from the "hinge" department, some washers, bolts and wingnuts.

Incidentally, I've found that 5/16ths nuts -- for some reason -- do not thread onto 5/16ths rails properly. 5/16ths wingnuts, however, thread through just fine. Hence, you'll see the use of wingnuts with my rail setup...

Here are some images to give you an idea:

Hey that one looksl ike mine ! heheheh

nice rails dude, they are really useful.

BTW, i solve the flipping problem with a cheap pentaprism...

but if you lose too much lightin the process i solve it putting a telescope mount with prism inside at the end of the little viewfinder in the dv camera.

Agus where did you get the pentaprism from?

And is there any way you could put up a simple little diagram of how yours is put together with the pentaprism?

Thanks
