Nice. Thanks Kyle. I've just gotten used to being able to run my own.... Probably not practical anymore...

Thanks!

site's back up

James, I was able (@ 7:01p PT) to load your webpages & download your "First Post 11/25/04." The shot where you stopped the ground glass was instructive.

Is it maybe online image compression, or do I see some aberration, in this clip, in the outer 1/5 of your image? Have you shot any tests with resolution or color charts for reference? If so, could you post them?

All in all, your results look solid & useful.

John, the first two are utilizing older materials. For a more up to date view try the last one listed. It's not fully up to date (as he has a new GG) but it's the closest.

Aaron, thanks, I noticed that. The latter looks cleaner, but the colors in the footage content makes it hard to look for chromatic spread. I wouldn't base my ultimate expectations on online video, but I'd be very interested to see some more systematic optical tests of this gadget.

Oh absolutely! I've asked for a res chart etc in the past. Hopefully he will have these sort of things soon!

I too like what I see, but I can still detect the spinning or the moving GG in it. Now to a purist, this won't do, but to me it is ok, but still something I would like to eliminate. I am hoping the design guide has enough room to move for the user if they want to experiment!

Hey guys,
Aaron was right about the first clip. It was using the hoya macro. Which was awful. Chromatic and distortion problems. It was also using vinyl stuck on the cd for a gg.

The second clip was using my second gen gg, but using my first homemade macro.

The third clip was using an older gg (that flickered) and my latest macro. Its a real achromatic diopter. No more chromatic and distortion problems. You would have noticed chromatic problems in the shot of the statue with the darker background. (It's where I finally ended up pulling that Hoya off and chucking it across the field!)

I'll try to get a res chart up soon. I'm waiting on the new ggs.

Got to get some work done today, so I'll be posting more info tonight. Thanks guys!

Are you making your own GG's or ordering them? Also, the macro's that you are making, do you find that they are in fact better than what is available out there?

I'm having them made here in town to my supplied design.

Yes, for this application, my homemade design is far better than what's out there. The price certainly helps too.
