MFdof - medium format adapter with macro glide
 
A DIY project, working a whole year on it. The goal was to make a lightweight adapter with macro glide.

Main features are: 55x41mm frame size, expandable body (macro glide) for filming very close objects with any medium format lens and maintain visible dof even with wide-angle (fisheye) lenses.

The good things about this adapter are: lightweight, big GG (possible less grain than usual), and only 15mm distance from the camera (tested on Sony HDR-FX1 which has, in short, poor macro capabilities).

Currently I am not satisfied with vibration (using a 18mm coin vibration motor), and with the fact I am unable to clean the GG perfectly :( ... but I am working on it. I am getting best results with a beattie, but also looking for other GG types, along with other camera types to test it (I am stationed in Croatia/Europe).
