What chance there will now be a run on used Series 300 Mini35s and the traders and vendors wondering what the hell is going on.

P&S has definitely targeted the 35mm motion lens crowd (rental or big $$$) where Wayne and others (ourselves included) have targeted the SLR lens crowd which offers a much more affordable full frame (SLR film) solution. Wayne's adapter will not have any vortex/grain issues with HD or otherwise, as his spinning design is well sorted, and uses very modern technology for the spinning disc diffusion surface.

(I think Wayne K has a secret formula.) I believe the SGpro must have a finer grained diffuser or higher rotation speed or both.
The mini35 does not spin in the same fashion as the SGpro or M2 from what I know. It's hard to explain this, but on the mini35 the image is projected onto a rotating GG where the spinning axis is actually the CENTER of the frame.

The M2 has the 35mm projected image onto outside area of a "larger" spinning disc. I think the SGpro works in the same fashion.

If for some reason my mini35 series 300 doesn't end up selling... I would definitely consider a mod to get it working with HD and possibly even improve on the light loss situation.
