What about acrylic for a gg? Not sure if it is diffusable or how thick it would have to be.

A surface mount pager motor on your screen frame mounted in rubber bushings...and you're set.

I think that the paper bags i use to buy with ham at the local grocery store has this typ of plastic at the front, so you could see the ham. I'll check that out later today. Getting a $2 very good ground glass sounds too good to be true. Actually it's free if you eat the ham...

In theory, few things could be better than a Beattie, in reality a Beattie gives very grainy images in som light conditions. Scratching a beattie isn't fun either, I've tried... :)

As stated, I'll try to get some time to check that out later today.

not if it's moving :) Actually now that you've shown us this I really want to try out this material. In terms of the Letus, this material would be lighter than glass and therefore would let the GG plate vibrate more. I'm itching to try this out--are these like the plastic bags that you put fruit or veggies in at the grocery store? In which case I know what material you're referring to...goodness I hope I don't have to ask one of you to mail me a sample of a plastic bag or something pathetic like that...:)

I think that covering all the surface of a fake CD with some streeps of 3M Magic Tape should be a very good and easy solution for a rotating GG. Same thing for a vibrating one.

3M tape? It would have to be a wider thickness I am thinking. Sandwich bags? I have tried the PressNSeal and it works great, but I think you are working with something else, right?

Yes, Alain is working on a static adapter, and me too, for the moment.

The idea of the 3M Magic Tape on a CD comes to me yesterday when I try to put some of this tape on an UV filter to replace the GG and test trasparency and grain. If you dont consider the dust and the size of the tape, that dosnt cover the 24x36mm area, the results was pretty good.
If you do the same on a moving GG the junctions of the various streeps should be invisible and the grain too. This is just a theory, of course, I've not yet an experience on moving GG.
Is there anybody that can try it ?

Alain, please can you say how are you going to fix the adapter to the camcorder ?

Hey Leo can you post some footage or pics with press n seal. I am currently rendering some footage with a Folgers Coffee can top and another sample with a regular white plastic grocery bag. Yes the bags they give you your groceries in. I Think if you get a bag that has no wrinkles it might work very well.

Will do. I haven't touched it in months since I got the Letus35. I will break it out and shoot some stuf with it to show tomorrow when it is light outside.
Alain, what is the widest you can get the 3M tape? I am going to try it in the Letus35 and see what happens!

Do you remove the glue off the tape to be able to use it without attracting dirt.

Also, I was looking around for material to rry out and noticed some plastic that was used to protect negative picture film. The only problem is that it isn't wide enough to be able to use it effectively. It almost looks like the frosty side of a grounded uv glass, except that I don't see any grain only the scratches that were on it. Amazing!

the plastic bag was used inside, and the coffe can lid was used outside.
