will mini35 work with 1/2"?

i have a JVC GY DV500 with 1/2" CCDs, and i was wondering if the mini35 would work with it. I haven't read anything about it yet on these forums.

I don't think it will. As of now the adapter will only work with four cameras. xl1/xl1/sony pd150/dvx100/sony fx1. You best best would be to try making your own mini35 device for it. THe result are surprisingly good.

ok i see all this stuff for making your own mini35...but all the cameras are way smaller than mine, does that make a difference? i wish i had a CD with a tutorial on how to make one.

If you've got the balls to do it it is a fairly easy thing to build and the concept would work on and camera. Do a search on Marla. THat was a short film made using a standard SLR camera and a canon xm2. That produced amazing results. On their website which is something like-www.marla-the-movie.com. they have a good tutorial that shows you how to make it.

Here is another site that explains the concept of the device.
