The new size lenses and rail system should arrive either Monday or Tuesday so footage, stills and pictures should be available by the end of the week.

The following mounts will be avaliable for the DiGi35:

We have also decided that the rail system will be come standard with the DiGi35. Official pricing to follow shortly.

Only the Nikon and PL mounts have been made at the moment. All the others will be complete before launch date. The mount of your choice will come free with the DiGi35, all other mounts will be available separately to purchase. Official pricing to be confirmed.

Tony.

Something I suggested to P+S awhile back and something you might like to consider is something I do with the AGUS35.

As well as using it for groundglass imaging, to enable long lenses with apertures tighter than f5.6 into inbuilt lens style camcorders, I remove the groundglass and just use the adaptor itself. The image passes direct into the camcorder. I have in the past used the word "aerial image" to describe this process but there are some contentions as to the correct definition.

A swing out option for the groundglass could be a useful addition if it is not to difficult to design in and enables camcorders like the PD150 or FX1 family to become much more versatile, ie., large field team sports, surfing or ground-to-air videography.

Lenses used into this style of arrangement have been Sigma 50m - 500mm f4 - f6.3 zoom, Nikon 500mm f8 mirror lens, MTO f10.5 1084mm mirror lens. Lenses with a tighter than f6.3 - f8 aperture may vignette on the corners or on the PD150 family, corners plus a left side edge crop.

The big lenses need extra support and your rods system could provide that with the appropriate bridge pieces. The MTO is very wide and might not fit into the available space between the lens mount and rod centres. My solution is a lot less elegent, a piece of pine timber.

Bob,
great suggestion, and the word "aerial image" is correct as far as I know. I have done the same thing before because I believed (and was trying to prove to myself) that there is more than just "bokeh" in the use of these adapters. There is a 3D quality to the image even without the gg.
