I have a Sigma 28mm which fits to the Nikon mount on the front of my version but I have had extreme difficulty in getting a sharp image. I did get a better result with a Cimko 28mm to 85mm zoom but it was f3.4 and went dark on full zoom. On the non-erecting version it was acceptable and my music video test "My Time Again" was shot on it.

In conversation with some people who hire equipment here, the consensus was that the Agus or Mini35 for that matter would probably be best employed if the wide-angle footage was shot direct to camcorder and the Agus kept only for head shots and the depth of field work.

Juan.

I forgot to mention in my previous post, we were talking about shooting high definition TV.

The Agus version I have built certainly would not compare favourably with the Mini35 in a production environment as it has to be managed with gentle care as I have discovered in my most recent test or the results will be inconsistent.

What lenses did you use on the Mini35?

I have some test footage using Mylar instead of glass or plastic in the GG position. I took a 35mm lens and basically rebuilt it for this. I took just the lens part and put it in a piece ov PVC, using just the basic gearing for focus. here the footage www.hazardousproductions.com/test.mov. Not a great camera job but the point is there.

Anamorphic 35mm lens

I've built a 35mm lens adapter for my Sony vx2000 Mini DV camcorder. In FCP, obviously there is an anamorphic setting in sequence settings and capturing settings, but it is only for 1.78:1 (16X9). Is there a way to tell the system that I'm actually using an anamorphic lens that compresses the image 2:1, or even 2.25:1? I think compressing the image manually after capturing will degrade the resolution.

Fred: wouldn't mylar cause a dramatic light loss? Isn't that stuff highly reflective?

It was hard to judge how the actual adapter performed due to the fairly strong backlighting. Things were either pretty dark or over exposed.

Francis Lord Optics supplied me with some AO5 on request when I bought my 40mm prisms from them. "sales@flo.com.au". I don't know if they will do small orders alone.
