Yasser..that's what the beta program is for. It will be tested on a very good selection of cameras in very short order.

Testing with the XL1s

Testing with the XL1s went excellent. The production version will work with this camera no problem, no macro, no achromat. The prototype has about a 5% vignette as I expected due to a slightly longer cam/gg distance over the production design.

Looks great, cant wait to see footage. Your adapter is very sharp (in both sense). So its vibrating?

Yasser, would you care to elaborate? I would think the worst that can happen is that these cams will require a macro, as with other adapters.

With temperatures at a balmy +5C, I ventured out with last fall's dolly/crane project, up to now relegated to the shop rafters. Using the adapter is a big challenge with a jib/dolly, as focus is manual, and in this case (excessively so) the DOF is too shallow at F1.4. Here are the results of an hour's play. It started raining right after I was done so the light's a bit flat.
