That looks great, thanks for the emachine link Wayne, I would have never known. Mine is coming along fine right now, but I can't find a source of syringes at present, tried home depot and a few dollar stores, but nothing. I am trying to source close before I do the online ordering route.
All I need to do now is set up the focal length and place it in a square container.

Drug store pharmacy, just go up to the counter and ask for them. In most cases you do not need a prescription, just the size. Quyen Le thanks for sharing this info, it is enourmously helpful. What kind of Achromat are you using Quyen?

I use the 58mm macro lens sold on ebay and 1 of the item from surplusshed.com http://www.surplusshed.com/pages/item/l3385.html .

I am going to take all measurements and part lists in the next couple of days since I still want to make the unit dust proof.

If anybody is interested in a kit, let me know. The kit will include all the custom made parts and all the necessary parts and instructions to make the complete adapter. If you think you don't have the skill and necessary equipment to build it, I can build and send it to you. Thanks.

Giroud Francois, do you have a link for this? I couldn't find the one you were looking at specifically...

I love watching test footage, is that weird? A few questions though:

Were some of the shots done without the motor on? There is some static dirt on the GG for a few shots. Also it is a bit difficult to tell about sharpness since the video seems to have weird persistent interlacing artifacts and seems a bit soft. What camera did you use? Any chance of getting high res stills from the dv camera or from a still camera of the images through the adapter? It would be great to see how sharp the image is at high resolutions to see if the system is alright for HD.

I forgot to clean it before shooting this morning. There were some spots there. I will try to capture still image, just don't have the memory for still. The camera I used was vx2000. I don't know why the video is interlacing.

I use Camera [) then surplsshed (]GG Lens.

Still image

http://www.nuocsong.com/nhatho/adapter/sharpness.JPG

The above picture was captured using handheld digital camera. Because of light reflection, the rest of the image was bad, I can only crop out about 1/4 the size of the focusing screen which is about 1/16 of the image size of digital camera's image. I think the focus is sharp, don't you think? Thanks.
