    Biggest surprise of the show - Brian of Redrock Micro just handed me a LiveLens Canon adapter for the AF100 & GH1 & 2! It's a regular EOS adapter with an electronic aperture control. They are still deciding pricing but delivery could be very quick.

    I assume this will be at the Redrock Micro booth Barry?

    It is at the Redrock and Panasonic booths. Thing about this unit is - it is not something all new that needs a lot of testing and whatnot. This is existing tech from a product they've been selling for years. Brian said that if the demand is there, they could have these available in as little as 30 days. Part of what they are doing with it is to gauge demand.

    It lets you control the lens' real iris, not some sort of additional iris like the kipon. I don't think it is aiming to be a direct competitor to the Birger on the high end; it doesn't communicate to the camera so no autofocus or OIS, for example. But it does the job lots have been asking for - it let's you mount Canon lenses and control the iris.

    Nikon adapters with aperture control are already available from other manufacturers. This unit is addressing the hole in the market: aperture control for Canon lenses.

    got it. I was under the impression that this gizmo gives an accurate readout of the actual aperture in addition to just controlling it.

    It does. It tells you exactly what iris you have it set at, on a little digital readout. It's pretty cool. Has a 9V battery supply, but I believe you could also power it from the Swit battery so you could have one battery for the whole rig.

    I recall a thread where several of us were pretty much begging Redrock to come out with this. I'm glad they listened. If they do actually release it in a decent timeframe, I will buy it..
