Heres a test chart for the optical quality of all of our mini35 designs. Any promising designs should be put to this test to know for sure that its working as well as it can.

It tests for:
1)chroma aberration
2)barrel distortion
3)how much grain is apparent from the ground glass

How does it work?

Step 1: Print out the picture of the test chart on high quality glossy photo paper at 300dpi. You'll find a link at:
http://www.cinematographerreels.com/mini35info.htm

Step 2: Measure the image after it prints out. It should measure 24mm x 18mm.

Step 3: Videotape the image with only the diopter lens your using in front of your camera (diopters are also known as macros, closeup filters, achromats and apochromats) and make sure its in focus and that you are filling the viewfinder edge to edge with the image.

Step 4: Post a frame grab from your video here at full resolution (720x480). If you have straight lines in your frame grab and no color blurring then your mini35 system has pasted the test.

Now if you want to check for how much grain can be seen in your ground glass repeat the first 4 steps with your mini35 system put all together including your 35mm lens.

These tests will check, with precision, everything but resolution. You'll need to shoot a professional resolution chart for that. Post that too if you have frame grabs.

This might be straying a little too far out of our comfort range (I have almost no idea what they are talking about), but I found this pdf file on the web:

http://www.k-ids.or.kr/science/confe...ion_A/a6.2.pdf

It's a proposal for using a lenticular lens in a rear projection television system. It seems like this is kind of what we are going for, but on a much smaller scale.

If someone can do anything with this, perhaps a lenticular lens could work?

I remember the longest time ago on the agus thread there was talk of having actual plans... seems that topic dwindled to nothing... seems like that would be the best thing to really work on to jump start some real progress again around here...

sorry, it just seems like nothing's really gone anywhere for the last 3 weeks or so -->>>

Well, there are a number of reasons why I was absent, and some are beyond my control. I'm not going into the details or making any promises, but I am going to have something to show in a couple of days, not weeks (the last part is coming, having my fingers crossed).

I agree. Currently there are two thoughts on this particular problem:

1)on board image flipable LCD screen

or

2)Pechan prism>roof pentaprism or mirror>roof pentaprism

Whatever we end up doing something HAS to be done. You just cant expect to professionally and consistantly operate a camera if you dont correct for both up and down - left and right.

Louis?

Any quick updates on the holographic diffusion? I'm really looking forward to your conclusions on this. Sorry for the impatience. Thanks.
