JVC HD110 matt box on a budget

Well I starting shooting 24p more and more, and wanting to keep my shutter speed at 1/48th AND want to have a f-2 to f-4 to narrow the depth of field. Of course everyone already knows the ND 2 is only 1/16th. that only gets the aperature open up as much around f-11 on a bright summer day. So I looked around. I found my Cokin P filter holder for my old 35mm Nikon. Ordered an adapter ring for $12 and mounted the Cokin on the end of the stock Funinon 16x lens. I kept my threaded Hoya 82mm UV filter on (the Cokin doesn't have deep enough threads to mount inside the lens). So I can now mount two 4"x4" filters with a rotation polarizer for about $30 all together (without filters). To be honest, if you don't already own a Cokin P Filter holder, get the next size larger (Pro or X) 82mm lens is the maximum that the P filter can mount on. if the lens went any wider I would get vignetting. But here is a pic to see it, assuming I attached the file correctly.

Hi Alex,

I'm interested in this low budget adapter that you put together, the picture seems to not be attached, can you try again?


Thanks
