Expert Opinons, user opinions, ease of use?

Jon Wolding June 6th, 2007 10:03 AM

Upgradability
Power/Charging options
Grabs from footage of color/focus charts

Image Quality:
- Bokeh/Specular Highlights
- Grain
- Blooming

-----------------

It'd be great to have a comprehensive shootout w/ all the adapters w/ the same lenses.

And if every company sent me their adapter and a big bag of money... I'd do it. :)

In the meantime, it's going to be mostly hard figures as supplied by the manufacturers. Going to keep it mostly just stats, as it isn't fair to go the subjective route unless all adapters can be tested fairly, in similar situations.

Suitability as a studio rig.
Suitability for agile portable work.
Robustness and stability of fit-up to camera.

Not that you need my support, but I think that's the way to go. Make it an informational resource.

If people want to post pics/footage for each adapter, I think that would be great, but having you give some kind of quality ratings for bokeh seems a bit much.

Jon Wolding June 6th, 2007 04:15 PM

If I could get my hands on every adapter out there without having to purchase them, I'd do a shootout for free. Maybe we could pool our resources and meet up somewhere to do this. Use the same camera (either the HD100 or HVX200) and the same set of lenses (Nikon mount is probably supported by all adapters).

But also, you don't want to just show it all with one cam... or what i mean, have 1 test be with an HD top of the line (HVX, HDY) then go down the list (DVX) then maybe low end 3chips (GS180) then cheaper and cheaper

Nope... just a good HD cam. If it works for HD, it'll work about the same for SD.
