I just looked up that article in my magazine stash. There is nothing else meantioned about adapting 35mm film lenses for miniDV cams. That quote was the extent of it. Actually, I think he spent more time describing how he hotrodded an old Datsun in his youth than he did anything else. :o)

On a side note, I was in a hobby store this evening getting some stuff and I ran across those little Micro Racers that are radio controlled. At first I found them amuzing to look at. I remember getting one for my dad when they first came out. I have to admit, they are kinda cool. And they have all these upgrade and "pimp-up" kits for your racer as well. I find that even more amuzing. But what I noticed is that in the main kit with the car and radio controller, and in one of the upgrade kits is the small motor that they use.

Since I was in there to pick up some balsa wood to build a mockup (proof of concept) adapter I thought I'd pick up one of these upgrade kits to try out that little motor. It's 1/4" diameter by 5/8" long....that's including the shaft. I don't know if it has the torque needed to get a mass the size of a ground glass and it's frame moving or not, but it was cheap enough to try out. I'll let you know if it works. If not, I've got one alittle bigger than that on its way here now.
