Beautiful!

For those who email me inquiring about my adapter, I can now give them solid advice. I'll send them to you!

Good work James.

I'll be emailing out an update this weekend to everyone on the list.

I made a HUGE step for everyone making this adapter. It involves a Hi-res GG, Laser, and a cheaper price!

Get on the List!

James, Great stuff.
I'm also concerned about finding the parts here in Italy. I guess I'll have to wait to see the plans, or order one from you.
Ciao!

I'll have the parts available if you have any problems finding them.
And as I make advances on the project and find lower pricing, I'll be sharing that with you as well.

"Hi-res GG, Laser"

James, could you elaborate a bit? What role does a laser play in your gadget?

If "GG" means "ground glass, " how is one higher-resolution than another?

I'll leave the laser question for James but regarding resolution:

The finer the grind on a glass the more detail you can theoretically capture. What these adapters try to do is disperse light. Any light that goes straight through the ground glass does not contribute to the overall resolution captured on the glass. Finer grain disperses more giving you a rise in resolution that the glass can actually capture.

I'm having ground glass "gg" being made by a company that's using several machines including a laser to insure uniformity and very very fine grit.

Well said Aaron.

lasers & light dispersion

Got it. Thanks.

I'm new to this subject (ground-glass dispersion). Have you fellows, in your travels, come across some way of quantifying this implied ratio of texture-to-dispersion?

I ask because there's been so much speculation & experimenting (on this site, at least) about schemes for improving just that aspect of the ground-glass components in these gadgets.

Yea, but it might take a bit longer with all the guide stuff going on. Either way, I'll have the new ggs available for everyone building the device.

Thank you James! Happy to be of service.

John,

No worries! It's a topic which has so many facets!

I don't think anyone has actually quantified the ratio. That would be a very interesting test to try! Mostly people have been focusing on getting smaller and smaller grain. Some of the others may have done this though so I don't speak for everyone :).

Ha!

James, you're intrepid. I signed up at your webpage for updates, etc. I'm especially interested in any tests you do with your assembly attached to Canon's 14x manual lens &/or their 16x manual.

James Hurd,

Any chance we'll be seeing samples of the new GG in action soon?

Thanks,
