We have sourced the actual manufacturer mount rings for the DiGi35 as opposed to using T-mounts. To get an idea on what the favorites are can you let me know on your next post everybody. Be good to see just how many different mounts people use. Also what diameter your camcorder lens is.

Thanks,

If the bokeh is good I'll buy the glass in a fast second. Out of all the diffusing options, none except the G35's hi?-lux (wax?) deliver quality bokeh, and I think it's one of the qualities that's grossly overlooked in a focusing screen.

I take exception to that remark :)

Would this work for a revolving GG? I'm in the process of making a Redrock Micro DIY 35mm adapter and wanted to test different GG elements.

Thanks,

Jim

Rotating GG

With regards to the rotating option we are devising a threaded seal for the DiGi35 GG to ensure that no glass separation occurs. We shall let you know the progress of this.

With regards to the rotating option, what is the most popular diameter? Is it CD size? Our prototype rotating GG with seal is 120mm in diameter with a 25mm aluminium centre seal for mounting.

What diameters are you all using?

I presume the fact that you're trying to make gg's to suit spinners means the grain is too much for static? Just curious.

Oh no of course not. The GG will be a separate product available to buy for people who cannot afford the complete adapter. There are hundreds, maybe thousands of people out there who have DIY adapters but dont have the perfect GG or who need a replacement GG. Our aim is to cater for people of all budgets and requirements. If someone has an adapter, the last thing that they want to do is shell out lots more money for another one, instead they can just upgrade and buy the GG.

The whole concept of the 35mm camcorder DOF adapter market is to cater for the film industry where big budgets or large sums of money for equipment are not available therefore we aim to cater for everyones needs.

I hope this answers your question.

Well if the grain is ok without moving the gg, why would anyone bother moving it, and introduce the bulk and noise of a spinner for no reason? Making a big gg for a spinner strikes me as a lot of wasted effort if you don't need to spin it, that's all I'm saying.

I didnt say it had to move.

The rotating option is purely only for the adapter, we are not saying that it has to be spun, all we are providing is a GG of a particular diameter designed to fit a rotating adapter to save the cost of having to buy a static adapter. As a rotating GG is generally attached from one side we have developed a seal to ensure that no glass separation occurs to extend the life of the GG.

The GG has a different seal in our static adapter and is of a different diameter so the GG cannot be used in a rotating system.

To simplify your question we will provide 2 GG products.

- One for a static system

- One to fit an existing rotating adapter (GG does not need rotating)

Our website is near completion so sample footage and stills will be available www.digi35.co.uk shortly

It is the focusing screen onto which the image is projected from a 35mm SLR lens. The camcorder records this image. The main concern is visible grain in the material.
