FYI--the mechanism is a follow focus; the individual who uses it is a focus puller.

Thanks Charles! Er, imagine I substitute "follow focus" for "focus puller", might you then have any insight into answers to the actual question?

If you buy a mattebox that rides on 15mm rods, it should fit any lens. You might have to attach a rubber wide angle lens hood to your lens to keep light from striking the back side of your filters if the lens has a small O.D.

The follow focus will work with any lens that has a focus gear installed. Provided, of course, it had the same tooth pitch as the gear on the FF. It would be a pain to use the little rubber (or plastic, can't remember) gear that Cavision uses on the lens.

<<If you buy a mattebox that rides on 15mm rods, it should fit any lens>>

well, not really...there are some mighty large diameter lenses out there, both in the cine and still 35mm worlds. A 4x4 mattebox that is standard issue for DV these days will vignette with many wide angle 35mm lenses also.

Steven, your question about the follow focus depends on what lenses you will be using with the Micro35 or whatever adaptor you are planning on. As Larry pointed out, a good f.f. will have interchangeable gears that will be compatible with any lens. I have 32 pitch (Cine standard), Canon and Fuji for mine.

You are right, Charles. I should have said "most any lens". My 4x4 Chrosziel works fine with my 18mm lens, but I wouldn't even think about mounting it in front of my 10mm. Sorry if my statement was misleading.

Many thanks guys! I think I'll put off any MB and FF purchase at least a week or two until I get a better sense of how real the micro35 is. I think people will remain split as to whether what James has put together is a revolution or something akin to a hoax until guides/gg actually start landing in mailboxes.

More questions

I was wondering if there would be a way to attatch the adapter directly to the lens mount for cameras with removable lenses (i.e. XL1/1s/2) so those of us with such cameras won't have to deal with the elongation of an already enormous lens.

The mount situation has been taken care of. Nikon, Canon AF and MF, pentax, PL, and OCT-19 will be available.

New pics of the new mounts will debut on the new website.

see you soon!

Patent

P+S has some patent on adapter in Europe, I think. If I have unit shipped to Europe, is there problem? Is U.S. O.K. ragarding patent stuff?

Radek you shouldnīt worry, as long as you get your machine and use it, itīs ok.

But i donīt know what would happend if you try to sell it, then, if itīs in a minor scale i donīt really think you will bring their attention, but at a big one dragging lot of publicity, there sure be a clash of interest.

P+S have the problem anyway asking this huge money for a tageting market of poor indie filmakers!

The most important tool for somebody like me is a camera, the mini is an accesory, so it shouldnīt be more expensive than it. James is doing a great job trying to make the Micro work.

Iīm waiting anxiously, lucky that meanwhile thereīs NAB to mess around!

Micro35 and AG-HVX-200

James - any thoughts on the compatibility with the forthcoming panny HD camera?
thanks

we are....

going to see a whole lot of flurry after next week. Certainly, 35mm lens used in combo with the new panny HD cam will be a very sweet thing.

no kidding - I can't wait to see what kinds of images that combo produces. I can't even imagine...
