Heh, no, I don't think he's pullin a scam. I've just lost my enthusiasm and haven't been thinking much of it at all. I'm sure it'll be cool once it's ready and shipping/building/etc.

Guide update:
I've got the shipping materials ready to go, just waiting on the guides to arrive from printing.

Thank you so much for your patience.

Looks great. I've got a question about the Lomo version - I've got access to a few Lomo lenses and I'd rather use those than still lenses. Will it work with any mount, just the OCT-19 mount, any of the OKC mounts? Which Lomo lenses will it work with? Thanks.


Actually, now that I look at the pictures again, I've got a completely unrelated question. Is that a Konvas matte box you're using in those pictures, or is it something else? Because I've been looking for a good matte box to use with Lomo lenses besides the standard issue Konvas one.

Joshua,

On the LOMO mount, the guy I'm building it for sent me the OCT19 mount off of his 35mm movie camera. I haven't done any other research on them. I do know that the 50 lens he sent me to test with has very fast glass. I had to use an ND filter to test with.

The matte box is a Chroziel. It's seems very solid.

Joshua, I'm not familiar with Lomo lenses. Why do you prefer them over still-camera lenses? Gearing, etc? Image quality?

Jochen,
The site should be up. It's taken on some heavy traffic over the last day.

Keep trying!

John;

The gearing, the image quality, yeah, that sort of thing. They're cine lenses, built for the medium, so they don't breath. They're very fast, and for the money, very good glass. You can use a follow focus with them, they're built for the 35mm film frame, that sort of thing.

James;

Just out of curiosity, what step down rings did you have to use to get a good fit on the 50 mil?

James,

Whoever you used for printing, make sure you don't go back to them! *smile*

I have printed a MILLION flyers, books, cards, brochures & newsletters over my lifetime, my highest being 30,000 in quantity.....and none of them took this long.

I want to build one of these for my Z1U (or try and figure a way to make it work). I was excited at first, but now i'm like *shrugs*

Yes. They're made for Russian 35mm and 16mm cameras like the Konvas and the Kinor. While they're not as good as the slick stuff being produced to day, they're pretty good quality for the money.

However, it sounds like if I want to use one on my DV camera, I have to dismantle my Konvas and send James the mount, and I don't really want to do that. I could convert the Konvas to a PL mount, I suppose, but I don't really want to do that either.

Joshua,
Now that I've made the LOMO mount, I won't need a sample.

The delay has partially been our fault, but I must say, the printers are certainly taking their time.

That's what I get for trying to save money....
