You don't need video if you do timelapses.

Great work on your YouTube channel!

As I now own a GH1, which is pretty much like the G1 for photos, can you tell me more about timelapses? What type of rig do you use for panning?

so does your Nikon F to C + C to micro 4/3rds adapter combo still alow infinity focus?

and the plunger lets you adjust the aperture on G/DX type lenses right?

if it does then that's amazing!!!!!

I see you also has a Nikon E2 in between lens and adapter. Just order one from ebay. Are you able to lock the aperture push-pin when pushed in?

It seams to be the same thing minus the c-mount adapter. Are you able to lock the push-pin?

yes, infinity.

yes, aperture adjustment with non-ring lenses

It's wonky but works by adding a threaded sleeve and bolt to hold the plunger in place:

Any idea how much lens weight the G1/GH1 body can take without breaking?

no idea. it will 'hold' the 17-35 but I don't want to find out where the tipping point is... so I handle it like a lens with a camera attached (vs camera with lens attached) with big glass on.
