A1 with the M2 adapter

Here is my own contribution of a few family clips using the M2 35mm adapter. I love the combo.

Really nice footage. I like your rig. RIGHT THAT'S IT! My next purchase is a 35mm adaptor.

Hey Bryan! really sweet footage. Do you mind if I ask what M2 Bundle are you using. Ive read some people say the A1 works better with the SD M2 bundle and the SD achromat. thanks in advance.

Hey Brian. Nice Job. I did a double take because the little girl was a double for one of my grand daughters !

She's the middle girl shot with my 35mm DIY adapter shown at post 6 in this thread: http://www.dvinfo.net/conf/showthrea...302#post645302

Bryan, the footage rocks. It's really sharp and the colors are awesome. I watched twice. One time on the quicktime window and another time on a SD monitor...and it looked stellar on both. I remember these kids from some older videos you shot with the FX1 (am I right? :D )

Hey all,

Thanks for the comments. Now for some answers:

The rig is homemade from a single 1/4"X1" strip of aluminum ($14) bent the way I like it with a rubber mallet. The monitor is bolted on with a short piece of the same aluminum. The handgrips came from a broken tricycle and are bolted on. It works well and is plenty sturdy enough while adding minimal weight.

The rails are what came with the standard M2 adapter. I have the HD achromat (72mm) attached but it is interesting that Carlos mentions the SD achromat as having better results. I still have that one too and may try it also.

The additional baseplate under the M2 setup is a Bogen 3273/3272 quick release combo.

Same kids as the other clips posted. They put up with me pretty well.

Thanks,

Bryan

Eric,

They don't all use FD lenses.

It depends on the "mount" you get with the adapter - they are typically an add-on of your choice - this is the way it works for the M2. I have the EOS mount and use EOS lenses. I also have a EOS->Nikon ring adapter that I can put on any Nikon lens to hook to the M2 also.
