I have completed a few test (clips and pics) and I need some feedback. More to come.
Since web clips are limited, I took HIREZ pics (under the same conditions aside from video) to show the real resolution of the images.

1.4 to 16 is done.
uncontrolled and less than ideal light, done.
A few different lens (50, 135, 200mm) done.

Here is the link; (CHECK ALL 5 PAGES, please)

http://dandiaconu.com/gallery/ALL-CLIP-TESTS?page=1

They all have explicit information and examples about the shooting conditions.

What other tests would you like to see?

(I do want to hear crane and/or steadicam unless you are willing to play "producer" :-))

Dan,

Thanks for putting up some framegrabs and video clips! Looks like you've gotten around the hotspot and vignetting problems. Excellent quality!

What about some underwater footage? ;-)

Thanks Frank.
Just in case there are others like me;
if you click again on the same pic, you will see the hirez pic (down to the CCD pixels)
You can open two windows for same pic ; STATIC and MOTION to compare the dif. made.
As for the underwater footage, I might post it today.

Looks promising so far Dan. I'd like to see some daytime shots panning with people moving at different f-stops and focal lengths. I'd also like to see a closeup of a face with and without camera pan.

A swedish bikini team test shoot would probably the be best.

WHAT?!?! Nice job! Thank you!

LOL! My masking-tape-sealed adapter wouldn't have passed that test. ;-)

If I give you my address, will you send me one of your adapters? I could be a beta-tester or something.

Dan excellent job. I have to admit that I held my breath when you submerged the adapter into the bowl. I own a DVX100, will your adapter work and are there any problems shooting 24P? Once again great work.

Thank you Ernest,

>>>>>I have to admit that I held my breath when you submerged the adapter into the bowl<<<<<<<<<<

Me toooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!

Naaaaah. I would have not risk it!

I kinda know what I am doing here (or at least I am very good at pretending, aint I? ....lol)

I did not test it yet on any camcorders (other than Panasonic)
When I finish MY image tests, I will look into mating it with other cameras.

Tough ABS plastic. I stood on it today but I did not record the video. Tomorrow will be posted on my site as one of the "must have" tests. How did you like the "underwater footage"?

I didn't really understand it. You took the device and put it underwater, right? I didn't know if that was to show that it was water-proof or you wanted to actually shoot footage underwater?!

I think it was intended to display the waterproof characteristics :)

To actually shoot underwater you need lenses (and a housing for them and the camera) That "underwater footage" was a joke: HA, HA, HA and you were supposed to laugh.
But accidents happen. There was an ARRI dropped from a small boat (some 10 years ago) How long it took to have it back, I do not know. The insurance covered the incident.
But it could happen.
