Are you sure about the "high res" ??? Roses are totaly unsharp, and the bottles are very soft. I resized your tif downto 50% and then enlarged it to 200%. Guess what happened ? ... nothing - looks same :(

It's either not focused or 35 mm adapter has another function, it ads HD to SD conversion, at no extra cost.

Could you guys shoot resolution chart with adapter to see if it do HD, SD, or some other resolution figures.

It does seem like it causes some resolution loss, but until someone runs a rez test it's hard to say for certain.

Do it... Look here : http://test.datriware.com/test.jpg. I took your bottle scene, and changed resolution of left side downto 50% (512x384). Now you can compare left side to right side...

I think the difference should be more visible... like : http://test.datriware.com/test2.jpg.

Also the shots on your page (as someone said here before) looks cheap :(

More pixels doesn not mean more resolution... ;)

Yes, the Micro35 images are much softer than straight from the camera. Also seeing things in motion is another thing.

Dan - I'm not sure what you feel uncomfortable about - that thread was the original DIY micro35 thread - Chris pointed out it is no longer active on DVInfo because it was moved to our redrockmicro.com site. The conversation didn't end, it simply moved :)

Kyle - I'm not sure to what you are referring re: seeing things in motion?

Also, I am back down to the DVX but I will shoot some resolution charts this weekend. Thanks again for all the feedback.

Cheers

Brian

As you may already know, DV Info Net was the first home for the Micro35. You might say it was born here, just like the ReelStream / Andromeda project. These guys have decided to run their own discussion forum on their own site, and they have every right to do so. I am not going to compete with them for message board traffic over their own product. The proper thing for me to do was to shut down our old Micro35 forum and refer everybody to their new home elsewhere on the web. I have done just that. Please don't try to read anything more into it than that. Hope this helps,

OK, guys, sorry, my fault.
Is not hard to tell (by some of the pics on my site) that I am up-side-down (;-)<

Not a criticism so much as a heads-up, Brian. At the end of the garden footage, you can still see some vignetting in the bottom left hand corner - it could be a shadow, but it looks suspicious.

Seeing the sample footage where the still came from is a much better example of the quality. Judging from that still frame doesn't compliment the actual footage. That bes what I meants.

hmmm, have to agree those stills look very soft, maybe you've got some axial vibration in there?


in fact I've yet to see HD grabs which approach the sharpness of the crude tests I did months ago - have a look at the little white flowerheads in this tiff
