Random Parts

Hey guys,

Ran across some random parts that may be of use to those trying to build a 35mm adapter.

Aaron, have you built yourself one yet? I always hear all this talk..

You seem very knowledgable about this stuff?

Yep! Well, I've had several different test versions. I have yet to settle on any one thing yet. There's always something to improve. I constantly go back and forth between what I think is best for an adapter. Some days I think static adapters are the real answer and other days I get sick of trying to look for the perfect grain free material!

Do I? :D. Thanks, though I'm absolutely not as knowledgable as many of the others here! I've dealt with optics before (as in parts) so that isn't entirely new to me at least.

Re: Random Parts

The HUGE lens is for getting rid of the hotspot, right?
but what is the 72mmDCX lens for? Is that instead of a Macro? What is the backlight panel for?

Aaron, I love the research - I have been looking myself for a few products at Anchor Optics, but this place look like it has some great deals as well.

you could use a lens like the HUGE lens to get rid of a hotspot. However, that one is much too large. Something like 90mm in diameter if I remember! I don't think anyone here needs something that big but I figured I would post it anyway.

The DCX could indeed be used in place of a macro. How it would work out in the end I haven't any clue.

I listed the backlight panel because these types of panels usually incorporate fairly expensive diffusion surfaces so they can get even illumination from a single light source. I thought it may be of some use to those experiementing with diffuse materials.

Steven, yeah I can post some footage. I'll put some up when I have some spare time. I'm on "spring break" at the moment and have been keeping myself fairly busy ;).

What about this one?

http://www.goldmine-elec-products.com/prodinfo.asp?number=G9576&variation=&aitem=7&mitem=7

It looks good, but I wonder if you are going to burn a hole in something with a condenser like this?!?
