WOW!!!

What a setup you have there. That looks very well machined and put together, how heavy is it?

The footage is the most 'film-like' I have seen. Obviously the professional lighting goes along way.

Well done,

Wayne.

Actually, the more I look at it, are there two SLR lenses in there? One after the GG and one before?

Looks like the bits after the GG are a combination of condensors, mirrors and prisms, im probably wrong though.

Yes Mandy 2 lenses: the closer to the CCD is a lens (used as macro) wich takes the image from the groundglass through the prism and the mirror and focus it on the CCD block of the camera

Wow, you've got a prism in there?!?!? From what I can see, it look like -
SLR >> GG >> circular condenser >> two mirrors (prism)? >> another lens >> miniDV.
I thought the second Lens might have righted the upside down image, but I think that is a great idea to use it for a macro.
Do you have any other shots of the rig?
BTW, oscillating that way looks really cool!

Also, two mod. Sony HD cameras? Man, I want your jobs!

I can access all the files, except the video's from the second shot. I get a 'file not found' error.

Anyone else get this?

Wayne.

I have to say image quality is super sharp in HDV. You said a penta prism and a mirror to correct image orientation, do you have to adjust anything to the camera like mirror mode or something?

What have you done on the FX1 HDV camera? is the lens come off easily?

What frame size do you use? 24x36?

What macro lens do you put in front of the Camera? I notice some vignetting, is any condenser used on this macro lens.

Thanks.

NO, you have to adjust nothing the image is not upsidedown.
The vignetting in the first shot it was a slight misalignment of the lens throgh the mirror. The GG image size is a little less than 24X36. As soon as I'll find a bigger pentaprism I'll make it 24X36.
