There were some HQ clips posted in this thread.

I have been thinking about SG35 but there isn't enough information available about it. How big is the light loss? How much do I need to zoom in? There haven't been any in detail comparisons made (to Letus35 for example) I would love to see some of those.

The dvxuser adapter shootout will will be online in a week or so. SG35 and letusflip were tested amoung others.

We are no longer taking orders on the current version of SG35. We are working on the next version, SG35pro, which will be released in 1 - 2 months.


New features in the SG35pro will include:

Metal interchangable lens mount

Fully CNC machined aluminium 15mm rods support system

new higher quality optics, no distortion, no chroma abberation, no vignetting.

New smaller Die cast aluminium box for the main unit.

Fully sealed and dust proof

Smaller, ligher more compact.

improved internal ground glass mechanism.

runs on 2 AA batteries instead of 8AA's

Aimed price of 300 - 400

Wonderful! Im trying to gather the money to buy one of these things and they just keep getting more expensive! Ill be going berserk soon. All tough those improvements sound pretty cool! Sounds like something worth the money.

Thanks,
Im currently getting together with Les Bosher ( http://lesbosher.co.uk/ ) to do the machining of the support and lens mounts. Once i get a final quote I can completely the prototype and will be ready to take orders. Turnaround on the SGpro will be much quicker then with the first version.

Will the SG35Pro have the image rightsideup? Any chance you'll have an adapter with that feature by June? Thanks.

Hi,
No the SGpro will have an image upsidedown.

We have no solid plans on a flip version, but will continue research.

Wayne, you once mentioned that the SG35 would work with a Sony HC1. Would this still be the case with the SG35 Pro?

Hi,
Yes, it certainly will, via step rings from 72mm.
