Any thoughts on the footage? It's not Grammy material, I know, but it's using what I believe to be the final version of my GG. Cam is GS400, pro-cinema mode. A CP is attached to the 50mm F1.4 to bring the cams's aperture to the F6 range. At this point I've lost track of testing/experimentation times.
Basically I'm very happy with ISO test charts with and without the adapter...and I believe the bokeh quality and DV bokeh noise issues have been addressed.
With some final parts coming in, I will be selling an initial run of 10 devices. They will use a spinning GG, come with rails, achromat and will output a "righted" image (flip). My projections now are $550 US for the package. All popular manual lenses will be covered (strange requests will add a week). Construction is aluminum for adapter and rails. No plastic.
There are some CNC parts holding up the brigade...but I should have the initial run done by month's end.

Thanks Unix. Unfortunately the "toddler" didn't agree :grin:

Why haven't you had more response to this post?
I think maybe you should change the title of the post.
Awesome looking footage!
Title is scary...

Nevermind...I found it!

A2z, thanks for your feedback. I've had more than my fair share of helpfull feedback from this and a few other forums...so I can't complain on limited response here. :)
And really, not everyone is necessarily interested in finely critiquing an adapter....at least not until the adapter shoot out is done. I suspect that folks will become a lot more critical after a few of these comparisons are done.
What scared you about the title?

Was that using your Gusker? You still selling it? ;)

Yep, lots of folks kicking tires..no one's grabbed the keys yet.

That was some good DOF footage. Can you tell us more about your adapter?

Thanks Blaine. There's another thread (http://www.dvxuser.com/V6/showthread.php?t=43532) in this forum section. Also this. (http://www.dvxuser.com/V6/showthread.php?t=45966)

Guskers, thanks for the links. A lot of good info. I'm looking over so many units right now. Your footage was impressive.

Guskers, I am interested in your units for sale. Are they compatible with the dvx100? And when do you expect the units to be ready for purchase and delivery? Thanks for taking the time to answer my questions and great job with the adapter.

I'm knee deep in parts as we speak. Currently doing some drawings for a few CNC parts that will be required. I'll have a prototype unit in a few weeks.
I am aiming for compatibility with 16:9 cams like the HVX, XL2, and the plethora of models to come. The DVX will work as will any other cams, although a macro may be required. I am not too interested in getting too embroiled in "adapter" wars...just making stuff that works well, and keeps me happy. As I learn more, experiment more, etc, I'm changing my approach to try and cover all aspects of image quality and ease of use....while keeping things affordable.
