Several questions regarding DIY 35mm adapter.

What is the best method to hold the focusing screen inside a tube or something like that?I would like to use the vibrating GG holder from toenis. But unfortunately I still can't find a way to pay him the $$$.

And is that a Canon 250D macro is sufficient for a PD170 to focus on a EE-S screen?

PEople said the EE-S is much darker than the EE-A. If I want a bright screen on a static design. Shall I use EE-A instead?

Thx.

Daniel Schaumberger does them as well. His payment methods maybe different.

They don't accept paypal(e.g. which is the only way for me) too.
Plus their shipping cost is much more expensive. (Compared to toenis which is $49 with shipping included)

I believe that Daniel accepts paypal. If you scroll down to the bottom
of his webpage
http://www.jetsetmodels.info/products.htm

good luck with the adapter.

cheers

I've got a PD170 and I have 3 hoya cluseup filters (+1, +2, +4) and Im able to focus on my screen which is sandwiched between the last macro and a uv filter.

You don't see a lot of people on here with PD170s, but mine is working pretty well for a DIY 35mm adapter.

Good luck!

YEAH!!!It's really a godsend. I may consider purchase the holder from daniel. But I'm not sure about their quality and durability. It is a $75 include shipping cost after all It's not a small sum.

And in fact I'm a really poor film student. And will use a DIY adapter to film my final year project. (Perhabs I could let you guys see my final project)
A Canon 250D achromat diopter is the only thing I can afford. But I have to make sure that +4 is sufficient to fill the frame. Or if I add another cheaper +4 macro together with the 250D. Will the quality suffer much?

And I have another question. I just bought a Canon EE-S screen yesterday. But I'm concerning it's brightness. Since I might use it to shoot at night during production. I might considering buy the EE-A too next week for a spare. Do you think EE-A is practically MUCH brighter than EE-S?

Thanks you guys for answering me since I'm desperate for an adapter haha.

EE-S loses only 3% of light when metered with lux meter.
SLR lenses lose the most in this setup.
Don`t plan any no-light shooting with dof adaptor but spotlights can save your day/night.

Cheers,

Yea I have no problem with indoor shots since I can borrow enough spotlights to melt the adapter at school. But I love outdoor night scenes (e.g. Hong Kong nightscenes)

I look forward to seeing this... I don't think anyone has posted adapter footage of a similar location (ex. Las Vegas or NYC).
