Two/One Way Mirror for a GG

Just wondered if Two/One Way Mirror used for a GG might be possible for a static adaptor. I've been thinking about this and if you have the 35mm lens from the observation side of the glass and the video camera from the mirror side which "maybe" could be tinted white then you could have a grainless image... Dan what do you think...

PS: I did try a test to smoke up a clear filter with a cigar but it was a waste of time... ha ha ha fun to watch but a waiste of 30 minutes and a change of cloths ... ha ha ha anyway thought i'd fill you in..

Thanks

Sorry but I have no clue where you are heading. A drawing WILL help.
"Demo the possible" is the toughest of them all, cuz nothing's impossible!

Here we go...

Ok I work in a place were we use a lot of 2 way mirrors.. the mirror works like this...

observations side of glass.. No Coating on Glass

Mirror or patient side of glass... there is a reflective coating/mirror on the glass

"No Coating on Glass [glass] reflective coating side "mirror side""


So if we put the 35mm lens on the observation side of the glass... which this would be considered backwards from the way it is sopossed to be .
then place the video camera on the coated side of the glass then I just wondered if we could get an image with out grain. Or an image on the mirror side of the glass

35mm lens...No Coating on Glass [glass] video camera... reflective coating side "mirror side"

So the video camera would be shooting into the mirror side of the glass... Anyway just a thought....

I'll try and do a test soon but wondered what every one thought...

If the aerial image theory would have worked, then the mirror thing would work, but I'm afraid we're stuck with a diffuse (ground glass, wax, etc...) surface.

Good idea, though!

Craig,

It's been thought of before by myself and Oscar, but not achieved - with a diagram - it should work, I don't know if I can find the diagram again. I got the original idea from a photography book from the library circa 1975.
