CINEDOF™`s noise reducing screen holder doesn`t need even half the power required by motor manufacturer specs resulting in about twice the lifespan and quieter operational noise.
Oh, and see my EE-S screen samples used with it here: http://www.dvinfo.net/conf/showthrea...t=74356&page=2

Regs,
T

Can you re-iterate the costs for the parts once again? What is needed overall to create such an adapter? Thanks!

Can you stop down the EOS lens in this setup?

Edit: Sorry, stupid question. You uploaded footage with F1.2 and F16 ( F8? ;)
So it must be possible to stop the EOS lens down.

Thomas, EOS mount takes almost any SLR lens out there with lens mount adaptors except Canon`s own FD mount lenses. EF mount can take Nikon, Pentax K, M42, Olympus OM, Contax/Yashica and Leica R for example. So www.ebay.de will give European users many many good value lenses like f1.2 55mm Revuenon with Pentax K to EOS adapter.
Even EOS EF lens aperture can be unofficially pre dialed on any Canon EOS body with DOF preview button as follows: Set your desired lens aperture on EOS camera body then push the DOF preview button and unscrew the lens. Voila, aperture is set.
In the other hand aperture on electronic Nikon mount lenses without aperture ring will remain closed and are not usable with shallow DOF adaptor.

Best Regards,
T

Toenis, when will your vibrating piece be available for purchase? Will you give a student discount?

Rich, we are working on smaller diametre design but as thre are no good reliable vibraton motors smaller than 12mm it is really hard to hide those under the 35mm frame without affecting overall design.

Hey there. I asked about making it smaller and it doesn't look like it will work, but what about bigger? I have a Diffuser in mind, and I think it will work almost flawlessly with very minimal light loss and good bokeh. I'm looking for the diffuser slot to be the same but the diamater of the piece to hit the mark around 75mm, it will fit perfeclty in a 3inch thorlabs tube. Also pefect for everything else. What do you think? Will this be possible for extra money?

It`s possible...

Well, actually, in beta testing stages we`ve been successfull with 55mm diametre vibration unit already that will fit cheap Nikon macro tubes too.
It could save Nikon users a $20 lens adaptor if nothing else.
And ofcourse it would certainly be possible to make bigger ones for extra money as it would require almost 75% more of that pricey special copolymer of what our units are made of.

Rich, PM me if you want to beta test that bigger unit to let everyone know if it`s possible to assemble that into a thorlab`s 3" and fit it to a camcorder somehow.

Cheers,
T

T,

I'm talking to a guy who has a cnc machine. I'll get with you asap when I find out if he can make some parts for me. Thanks. And, I'll have to get with you on this diffuser I'm talking about. I think it's going to be a really good diffuser.

Arlight, I did some analyzing, I supopse that's the word, and the thorlabs tube is out of the question. The tube is 3inches in diameter leaving it pretty impossible to get a step down ring to anything. T, how are you placing your "piece" in the extension tube. Is it so snug it doesn't move at all? You custom cnc? I have a .pdf if you can give me an email address to send it to for you to look at. It would be perfect for your piece.

Is there a step-up to the 3" tube? I really wish ThorLabs would make a 2.5" tube :(

Yeah, me too. I've looked and nothing so far I come across makes a 75mm step up or down.
