T,

Okay, done some research and looks like I'll be able to do that Throlabs 3inch after all. So, shoot me and email and let me know how we can arrange and beta for it.

regards,

Rich,

Why should you still want to use thorlabs 3" tube when you can use thos cheap Nikon macro tubes with standard 58mm threads instead?
Only because of the looks I assume. PM me if you really want to beta this large and much heavier vibro assy.

Nikon macro/extension tubes with CINEDOF™ vibrating screen holder should be the easyest and cheapest way to make the smallest dust and splash proof DOF adaptor as you can screw even multi coated UV filters to both 58mm threaded ends of the longest nr. "3" tube.

Our upcoming tutorial will be groundbreaking ;)... just a little bit more patience.

Cheers,
T

T,


The macro tubes aren't what I'm looking for. They're almost priced the same and it doesn't have retaining rings. Ohh and yeah, the looks man, that baby looks dead sexy with all black anoized alluminum. Also, another thing. Instead of having to change the tube to use different lenses IE Nikon, Canon, Minolta, you don't have to change the entire seteup, just the front and you're good. For every set of different lens, you have to buy another macro set. You won't be able to find a Canon FD macro set anywhere, rather than EOS. Much easier to handle. I'm green for the large and much heavier viboro assy.

My email is

Just wanted to say that those "jin she jie quan" cheap Nikon macro tubes I`ve been talking about doesn`t always come with 58mm threads.
We just recieved another Nikon tubes set fom the same retailer with smaller than 58mm threads and also with smaller inner diametre than 55(.3)mm.

Regs,
T

Toenis - I'm really looking forward to seeing the final release of the CineDOF adapter, a superb way of incorporating the Canon Microlens Array focus screens. All the best & thanks for sharing the info.

one step closer to official release

Psst, would this do? www.cinedof.com (this is a non functional preview)
I really hope we can launch a fully functional web environment next week so everybody can place an order...
... actually we`ve had stocks for two weeks already.

Cheers,
T

$5 for the focusing screen from Canon parts

Hi Everyone.

I am getting very excited to try this new toy!

For those of you that will do it yourself, dont' buy the focusing screen from a retail store
http://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/cont....x=0&image.y=0
They cost $35.

You can buy them from canon's parts department for about $5 each. Just call up Canon and ask for their parts dept.

Peace, Rolland

I like the mockup of your site. I even got a little chuckle from the cameramen... they looked familiar...

Sam, those cameramen are indeed inspired from that "Fight lazy workers!" by unknown artist from 1931.

We have Nikon units (55mm diametre) in stock if anyone is interested in pre- release purchase. Just PM me.

Cheers,
T

I ordered a Pre-release unit from Toenis last Monday, so expecting delivery in the next few days, (UK). I have all the parts ready, so I'll literally be able to put it together, get some test shots & report back here with my findings.

The Cinedof looks to be a very promising device at $50, but like my dear old gran used to say "the proof is in the pudding". Keep you posted!

does Canon gl2 or Sony VX2100 need 250 Dipoter?

Does anyone know if the Canon gl2 or Sony VX2100 need the 250d Dipoter to work with the cinedof unit?

thanks Rolland

Rolland, can you verify if those tubes from Fotodiox/QualityFoto are with 58mm threads and with inner diametre of 55(.3)mm?
If so then this ebay shop is one of the best places to get stepping rings, Cokin filters, holders and hoods.
I`ve dealt with them before but havent brought extension tubes from them.

Cheers,
T
