Nice footage Daniel and Wayne. Speaking for myself, it makes a big difference when you show higher quality footage. Obviously everyone interested in an adapter is interested in techniques for suspending disbelief, so IMHO showing a hq example should help sell that (big though the files may be). Adding an old timer and good soundtrack doesn't hurt production value either :)

I'm curious...what was that piece of music? Very nice.

I'll be the first to say congratulations. From the footage I have seen of your current adapter I must say it is rather amazing. This new version sounds even better. Wish I could afford either one. Best of luck with this new version.

Wayne, good to see you're moving forward with your product...it shows commitment to your clients. Moving to 2 cells will lighten things up nicely too. Are you still using brushless motors (great idea BTW)?

Thanks Dennis,

I am no longer using the PC fan motors, its not something i wanted to take into the pro version. The whole mechanism is different for the pro version.

Now THAT is cool Wayne. Allowing the parts to be purchased separately is an ingenius idea. Especially the glass disks. I can see a lot of do-it-yourselfers going for that. Any hint as to how much the disks might be? Or we do have to wait until the site is up? If so, that's fine. I just wondered.

Hi,
Note, that the SG no longer uses a real glass disk, as announce a while back. We managed to source a material that gave better lightloss to diffusion ratio a while back, much better in our opinion.

SGpro teaser picture - Interchangeable Lens Mounts

Hi,
Just an update on the progress of the SGpro. We have finalized the design of the interchangeable lens mounts, currently offering Nikon or Canon FD, with more options to follow.

Here is a picture to give you an idea:
