I always follow your posts with interest, humor, and sometimes a bit of confusion.

IMHO you seem to create a no-win situation in your posts regarding 35mm adapters (and here ours in particular) by declaring:

1. only things that are new and interesting to you are worthwhile (otherwise they are "commoners"). I am hard-pressed to believe the footage from reel-stream and a DIY micro35 (which was built with our guide and probably less than $100 in parts from home depot) is anything short of revolutionary. Particularly since these are both (shortly) available outside of individual inventors. You make no distinction between generally available products and personal inventions which people can only admire from afar.

2. You've built your own adapter that you seem to claim nothing can match, but you are unwilling or unable to bring it to market. How is this productive?

3. Your sample footage seems only to demonstrate it is difficult to build a really great 35mm adapter. I'm pretty confident we all understand that.

4. You enjoy using flowery speech and pithy sayings that appear to serve no purpose other than to diminish others. I appreciate your apparent willingness to retract some of this, though frankly I would appreciate it more if a retraction weren't necessary in the first place.

In short, I believe we are all working towards a common purpose: to develop and share information, approaches, and every so often a commercially available product for the betterment of indie filmmaking at prices regular human beings can handle. To the extent your posts help all of us (redrock included) improve, gain more insight, etc. is the extent to which I find your posts useful and helpful.

Brian, that's an excellent summation of this entire thread, of which I have grown rather weary. This is a very good time to bring the whole thing to a close. Thanks a bunch,
