Thanks Guys!! I'm glad the video didn't get me banned. :) :) So while the opposite happened and this post is now a "Notice," I thought I'd again post links to places of guidance and solution:

Great video!

...Now how long do you think it will be before words like "super glue" and "plastic CD" show up in the threads again. I'm guessing twenty maybe thirty ....minutes. Oh well thanks Steev it was fun while it last.

I wonder what my friend, who is toiling away on his own version (and a gearhead) would think of this.

gearhead? As in part of a follow focus assembly?

I would think as in a gearhead, no?

Heath, is he miniaturizing the whole thing for DV cameras? Interesting (and slightly bizarre) concept...just hope that if he's reverse engineering, he's working from one of the good ones (Panahead or Arrihead), not the not-so-good (Mini-Worrall).

Whoops, I meant gear head, like Radiohead head (Radiohead fans) or Dead head (Grateful Dead fans), as in, he's a nut when it comes to working on stuff.

Funny you mentioned "gearhead" because I was going to offer that as one of the only explaination why me and a lot of other people tinker with this project for so long - It IS like being a gearhead, as in car nut. So many people work on their classic cars (including myself) for countless hours just to get that last 10% out of it or to do something no one has seen before. God knows if you actually subtract the cost of the new parts and ALL THAT LABOR from the price of the car when you end up selling it you dont even want to know how little you're getting paid per hour.

Making these mini35 adapters is a lot like tinkering with your classic car. You do it because its interesting to find out about all the little details of the things you love doing. I know this project has made me better understand optics and the why and how of lenses. At the same time if you're doing this so much that your not learning from experience as well (as in actually shooting a film) then it becomes counter productive. With cars this point is where your kicked out of the house to sleep in the car you love too much but thats another story. Anyways sometimes tinkering will have more benifits than simply saving you a buck. For instance I decided to make an adapter that using medium format lenses and 35mm lenses. Some have said that the P+S Technik mini35 is a bit too soft for SD and with HD coming around the corner as a mainstream thing I believe my medium format adapter is likely to deliver results that are superior to the P+S Technik and in the process learn something and save a buck.

Oh yeah...and have some fun doing it too.

Once you said car nut, it all makes sense to me now!

I totally agree with you Brett! I also use my time on my 62' Austin Healey Sprite (one of the smallest sportscars ever!) - which car do you play around with?
