James,

I am looking forward to reading your manual - but a few question that hopefully won't give too much away. What are we looking at here for expenses? Is there going to be lenses to buy and what prices ranges? What about motors and other equipment? Thanks

The materials will cost you less than $45 dollars. The guide will tell you where to get every part and how much it should cost you.

Thanks!

James-
I have a DVX100 (not the A) model. It doesnt have as short of a minimum focus as the A-model. Is this going to be a problem with you adapter as far as framing up and focusing on the GG?

Very awesome, James!

Question: If I were wanting to use (or build) an anamorphic lens with this adapter, would I have to get one to stick on the front, or would there be room for a rear anamorphic? I gotta admit, I know little about the cylinder lenses and rear anamorphic and all that. It's just I've been reading a few threads and getting really excited about it!

Brett,
It should be fine with the Macro I've made. I've got a standard DVX100 coming over this weekend. So I'll get to try it out!

Ok James, so I am assuming I won't need a macro lens or otherwise, just the parts that will stay under $45.00 - that is pretty good! I have been pricing macro lenses and other parts and they are pretty expensive, so if I can pay you $35.00 for the manual and $45.00 for the parts - that is a darn good deal!
James, please post some more pics and movies!
Also, I know you are claiming this only works on the GL2 and the DVX100A - are you going to including mods for workarounds in other models?

Thanks!

The guide explains how to do it for any dv camera. It will also tell you how to make the macro (Real Achromatic Diopter) for ~$10.

James,

Will you be offering the guide in a pdf format?
Also, are the parts available outside the US?

Thanks.

Kyle,
Yes, the parts will be available outside the US.

No, the guide will never be sent out electronically. The drawing package alone cost me thousands of dollars. So I'd rather not have it out there floating around on the internet.

Thanks James, I understand.

For those who buy the guide, will they get updates (to the guide) as they come out?

Looks like I'll have to hop over to your site and put my order in...

Cheers.

I'd love to see some more footage before doing a pre-order or order.

Have any ETA on more samples?

Obin,
I'll ship the guide anywhere the available via US Mail or International Air Mail. A bonus in the guide will be directions on building the rods and the macro. I'll have the DVX100 tested soon. I don't see anyproblems...

Kyle,
The next post of footage will be something professional. There are several folks shooting shorts and music videos that will be available for posts.
