DIY 35mm adapter for less than $20 (Canadian).

Someone made a 35mm adapter using spare parts for less than the price of a movie ticket and popcorn. Obviously not intended as an alternatve to the professional units, but you have to admire the sheer ingenuity. :-)

Where it all started.

This community has some serious credentials. Chris Hurd and others who run and sponsor this site should righfully feel proud of their contribution to these achievements. This is not to say they might not have happened but the impetus to get them happening was generated here I think.

Here is the link to the first post by Agus Casse, which set off one of the longest threads in history.
