400 series question

Does the new 400 series adapter have a spinning or vibrating ground glass screen? I ask this because the spinning screen of the last model made using the adapter difficult for me. Sometimes I need to stop the lens down for more depth of field!! I know this is contrary to the main purpose of the adapter, but I can't shoot everything with minimal DOF.

Hello Mike,

The series 400 Mini35 Digital has a similar vibrating ground glass movement as the one in the Pro 35 Digital. It has been reported that this movement allows more range on the aperture of the film lens.
