Well, the thing is that I really don't know. I just own the relay lens and have to connect it to my adaptor. And the relaylens has a bayonet type mount(I believe its called). When you connect the mini35 to the relaylens you put the two mounts together and turn a ring to lock it into place. Do you by any chance know of place which makes them? I'm really a novice in this specific area...

Yes, you will need to know about your "relay lens;" the specifications as well as what mounting flange it has.

Okay...I will get back with an image of the mount and measurements as soon as I'm able to.

hd100 lens relay for 35mm adapter

Hi Anders,

How are you doing with your hd100. I also have one and also want to get a lense relay working. Have you had any success with this yet. Are their "ready made" lenses that will work. How many stops do you think you will lose?

regards,

Simon

I've been doing some test with my HD100...and I have absolutely no complaints. But I have only been doing test so I can't really tell yet.

To Simon - I don't think that I would loose any stops. But I don't know yet. I made a quick test and the image seemed to be brighter than with the fujinon stock lens as it was with my canon xl-1.

I need to mount my adaptor to my relaylens. I have som images of the mount that I need to mount i to - using a locking ring of some kind I guess.

The images are of really bad quality - I know. But I hope someone can help me, by telling me what I can buy which will mount to this mount.

I hope it makes sense

Thanks

Hi Anders,
your system dof adapter looks very nice. About your relay lense for XL, I believe it will difficult to put it on JVC, the easiest solution is very likely buy a new one.
I might be interested in to buy your relay lense for XL2 if you come to a situation that you would like to sell it.
Well, maybe you have sold it already.
But if not you can send an e-mail for me too, since you live so "close", and actually your adapter too is very interesting to me.

Cheers

Well, I'm sorry to say that I already sold my relay and the one on the images is the JVC version. Thanks for the comments on my adaptor ;-)

Ok,
Did you really do the dof adapter all by yourself ?
It might look abit like a prototype but it seems to me that it is very well designed.
One more question about the supportrods, are the distances to the lense standard so that you can use normal cinematteboxes made by other manufacturers ?
Maybe one day we can see some footage?
Thanks

I made everything except the osc. mechaniscm myself. Les Dittert engineered that. And I must say that he is one talented fellow. The rods was supposed to match the industri standard. But I couldn't find any facts so I just did the distance as I thought it was.

I just made a quick test with the camera and here are the results with the JVC GY-HD100 and 35 mm adapter:

(pixelated and nowhere near full quality - but it shows what the camera and adaptor can accomplish. It was all made without any artificial lighting and I think it was brighter than the stock lens :-) Looks absolutely perfect in full quality!

Hi Michael

This is a temporary way I think. So I'm still interested in your help. I will contact you as soon as I have the time to take some good pictures.

Temporary you say? It looks great!
It would be cool to see the original .m2t video file. By the way, have you posted a picture of your rig with the HD100?

Some images of the rig:

The rig is actually really stable. So perhaps it is okay the way it is.
