dan, are you going to be selling these adapters? Do they fit most cameras? I have a dvx-100; will it fit mine?

I finished all I had to test abut it. Next week I will try it out on real cameras DVX, PD, FX1 and post pics/clips on my site.
(XL as soon as I will get the mount; ultra compact ;-)<

Dan,
When do you think you'll be ready to sell these adaptors?

How much will you be selling the units for?

Will you offer a choice of 35mm lens mounts?

What else apart from the 35mm lens do you need to make your adaptor usable? are the required macro/diopters built in or are the externally mounted to the camera?

Thanks.

In two weeks time I might have the first 6 ready.(some parts just got shipped to me Friday)
Price.... I will have to see how well it performs with a "popular" camera: Pd, DVX, etc and also how much "pain" one must take to see "the light"
I am talking CU and macro and/or rings....
When I'll know, you will know.

However, if one buys something like this, best choice in lens might be best option. Nikon (for now). I know there are other great lenses out there, but.. just for now.
There is nothing built in. Each camera has its own lens and might need a dif. set of macro/spacers/rings and such.
I will post pics/clips as I take them.

Thank you.

yeah it might be interesting to see if there is any vignetting with your adapter because of the step down

I am going to do a film transfer from FX1 footage and would like to know your comments, regarding using your adaptor with 35mm lenses.
When will you be able to test your converter with the FX1?.

dan,

1 question: since now i have had 5 differnet mobile phones, and everyone of them after 6-7 months have started to vibrate weaker, have you tried out the performance of the vibrating motors?

All batteries lose power with time (car, cell, camcorder, etc). Try the 7 months "old" phone with a brand new fully charged battery and see if it makes a dif;-)<
As for this device, it will happen too. It will not "lose power" it will only last less on each charge (? one day instead of 4-5 days??? in three- five years time?????)
I have no idea. Then the batteries will have to be replaced. It depends how many times you will charge/discharge them and how often. What I can tell is that a few days ago (after shooting in the canyon) I found it working when I opened the case that night (some ?4?5? hours later...?)
I must have turned it ON when I closed the case (the lead)
I did not build the charger and charge them yet. But it keeps going (and no, it is not energizer)

I will have to do it at one point in time or another, although is not a concern to me. But I'll do it.

I've got a short clip to share and get FB/comments;
13 takes, all using the adapter, 50 and 135mm (@1.4 and 2.8) one take (about two seconds in the clip) static GG and photographed upside down (so I can see the dif and if Premiere introduces artifacts) and obviously 13 sound track to sink %$#@&^>>............ and none played at the same speed (well... almost... but enough to keep me busy 4 a while)

The link worked 4 me once. I would appreciate constructive criticism (I know I should fix the tripod......)

Just watched the clip Dan. Everything looked clean and no hotspot to speak of. How did you end up solving the hotspot problem?
