Gev,

Are you going to sell your item? Any chance of a look-see inside?

I dont think I will mass produce guys, it was very hard to just get this one. I will try to get some pictures of the iside if I can. I'm working on a short film, so if I have time I'll try to get the iside pics up!

Actually, no. As an assistant cameraman for more than a couple years, usually the job is done from camera left side, as that's where all the other important camera controls that the assistant cameraman deals with are.

I would figure another 2 months of them just talking about it (and catching up on Micro35 orders), 3 months for them to finalize a design and release it, 2 months of waiting for the first batch to complete because of a design error or supplier error, another month for the re-design and 4 months for them to actually ship your focus unit. That's (calculating.....) another year before you would actually get it. You will probably be able to buy a real one by then.
