I found a web page put up by a guy in Germany who has built a static adapter using a glass and paraffin wax screen. He seems to be getting some really great results with no hotspot or grain problems.

The first link is to site and the second is to the screen manufacturer.

Giroud, what's the details on the rest of your configuration? What video camera are you using?

Giroud's camera?

If it's what he has listed on his profile, it's a VX2000.

Well, that's some of the nicest footage I've seen anywhere on "Alternative Imaging Methods". Documentation would be awesome (what macros if any, what the gg was mounted in, what extention pieces were used, and how was the 35mm lens attached, photo of the adapter and adapter on camera).

Giroud,

What camera did you use in these frames, what are the other details of your setup, they look much better than others I've seen.

Old Post, Great Pictures, Any Answer?

Several people asked Giroud what camera / device setup he used, but no response that I see.

The pics look much higher res. than that of a VX2000, which is what is listed in his profile. So whats the secret???

We need one person to post that they can see grain, and another to post that his adapter must have much more grain, which should be visible in a panning-motion clip. This thread is just not the same without it.

My confusion is more about what camera he used to capture these stills, and less about the grain (or lack there of) from the adapter.

To me, the image shows no signs of interlacing, just wondering if the footage a progressive scan camcorder, or if he deinterlaced it in post.

Well in this image:

http://www.giroud.com/minidv/c.jpg

...you can see grain in the top-left corner where the sky is visible. Sky and out-of-focus areas are the best places to spot grain.

The images are nice, though! Very bright. Some motion footage would be nice to see.
