I can't blame James for wanting to make sure interest is there as he proceeds. Let's just keep pushing him to get it done instead of griping about anything just yet. I'm just ecstatic that someone is taking it this far to make a finished purchase-able product. Kudos, James, and just git'r'done.

If you can provide the proof in the pudding I have no problem shelling out the cash for it. IF it works, and IF the quality of footage is true.

I sure do. But I don't like leaving questions un-answered :).

The product for sell right now is my research that has been organized into a simple how-to-guide. What's a year and a half research and development, and several thousand dollars of failed experiments worth to you? From what I know now, I would have paid $500 for the guide a year ago.

The "Pre-Order" people are getting the "Guide". The "Guide" which explains how to build the $45 micro35 adapter. I think that's been made clear. That's why it's for sale already. Also, people that get the guide first, as I'd recommend, will get the $45 price of the guide deducted from the Kit and Pre-Assembled price. It also places them first in line for the initial release units.

The only product in development is the Kit & Pre-Assembled units. And it will continue to be in development until it is "perfect". But as a customer, you'll be notified about the updates, and will have access to my parts and vendors.

If you have any worries about the quality of the footage, please don't purchase anything, but please keep checking back because I will be post more footage (including res and color charts Aaron;) ).

T-Shirts sound cool. And maybe a sticker for the case.

I appreciate the comments Craig! Great suggestions!

Thanks Imran! If you go reading through these posts on dvinfo and dvxuser, you'll see I've been pulling for the indies for a long time! Not about to stop now!

Obin,
I've got the parts. That's not the delay. It's a few different things. I just want to make sure everything flows well (including the kits and pre-assembled units).

Ok, I've got to go work... Thanks guys.

James, what you might want to try and to pacify myself and others is put one page online at your site of the guide - a page that won't give too much away, just a teaser of what is to come, then viewers can see the quality of the guide and the amount of work that went into it. I have seen others do this with great results.

Just a suggestion.

Sorry for asking this pretty stupid question.. but, this Micro35-adapter is driven with a CD-motor right?

2.
At least it's not a static adapter, right?

3.
The GG you are talking about, is that the size of a CD? You also mentioned the "NEW GG".. and something with laser. Didn't really get that part, explain if you can.

Thanks in advance

How about the Sony HD FX1. I have done some film transfers of footage shot on FX1. Will the adaptor holds the resolution requred for the Hi Res image, for a film out?.

XL2

If you need someone in the DFW area with an XL2 to test your adapter on, let me know. I'm just getting up to speed on all of this, but I'd be glad to lend a hand.

I do intend to purchase your guide and take a crack at making one myself.

I just added to the list. And its probably (just maybe) the first one flying to Spain. I really wish everything goes well and i can add the sticker and my smile to the next post!

Im not completely two left handed, so im willing to try make it by my own. And the price is worth to pay; even the complete micro35 as seen the rest of machines flying around.

Anyway, if it doesn´t work the first times im sure i will ask for one. And reccomend it to my fellow camera friends in my surroundings.

After being little selfilsh for a while and see their faces with the footage, of course...

It´s the first time i really enjoy (even smile) reading ten pages of so big thread. Really anxhious waiting!

DVX100 is good as of this weekend.

Yes, I've received the first batch of canon metal mounts.

More news to come.

Dude I hate to say this but I would never experiment on a project that has any importance to me.. Sorry but you might want to consider figuring out another way to save the project by shooting at telephoto and wide open with the aperture or just shooting normal and adding a few effects in post.. I would also never try to do or sell a service to someone without knowing what my equipment can do.. As for this adaptor I serious doubt you will have the time to get the unit, learn how to shoot a new style with the image backwards and upside down and also learn new lighting techniques by the time James has a complete unit for you… sorry for the bad news. But it seems to be the truth about production.
