Gg

Blimey, I should of added a few more zeros to the $amount. I don't mind seeing as it is for testing only. If successful I might make the glass available as a separate product. Due to the big response I have had I will limit the amount of testers as they do take time to prepare but for now I dont mind as I want it tested under many conditions.

Does anyone have any preferences as to what would make the ideal housing for the adapter ie: ring sizes, preferred lens mounts etc?

Substance

LOL, I was wondering when someone was gonna ask what is substance is. That would be telling. With the Movietube as soon as the patent became available to the public domain everyone has tried to replicate it. If I am to try and make it a commercially available product then the secret recipe must not be known, just like coca cola. But as I said before the glass will be available to buy separately.

Tony and the rest of you, you're really going to dish out 10 to test out a gg that hasn't been tested yet or seen? This guy could make some quick money whilst you guys are 10 pounds short. Not a bet worth on taking. Be wise.

Tony, show us what you got before you sell something..

Gg

If you were to read what I said the fee was to cover P+P for testing only, not for profit. $10 dollars was the maximum amount for worldwide postage. UK postage will only probably be between £2 - £3 maximum. Plus I am only going to limit the testers to a maximum of about 10 - 15 people.

As stated, I am awaiting my Sony Z1E. Do not worry, I wont send out testers out until stills and footage is available.

A family relative has a glass company who laser cuts the glass so glass is easy to obtain. It is specifically used in scientific applications, Its not your day to day glazing or picture frame glass but still cheap.

Email is below.

Thanks for your interest.

51.5mm diameter round, and if you can do rectangles, I'd also buy a 25mm X 37.5mm

Actually Thorlabs says to use 50mm optics in their tube, so 50mm instead of 51.5mm (as measured).

Let me know how and where to purchase when you're ready...
