Thanks for showing us that. There was a discussion in another post about this adapter possibly causing a yellow cast in some peoples videos But I believe the conclusion turned out to be the lens people were using. I do not see any evidence of this in your video. I'm thinking of getting one of these myself so I appreciate your footage.

This video does not have the yellow cast. It would look good both with or without it anyway. I am a fan of the cast. :)

I enjoyed that actually. Did the 35mm adapter have that "new car smell" to it? : )

I definitely have my eye on getting one of those.......and Neo HDV...eventually.

Hey marshall, a couple of questions. How's the edge-to-edge sharpness on that puppy? How is the light loss? (maybe do a lens-on/lens-off test to show difference in light?) And finally, does it have the problem of noisy blues that static adapters are supposed to have?

I couldnt smell any "factory fresh scent", but it looks nice and shiny, makes the HV20 look like some weird supercam now. :hv20-smilie87: I want Neo HDV too...I'm tempted by the deal goin on for hv20.com users.

I think it drops the light noticeably. Watch Neil's vid where he tests with and without the adapter, you'll see the light loss. http://www.vimeo.com/399352

The edge to edge sharpness? Not sure exactly what u mean but when I put it into vegas I did crop the edges because being my first time trying it I dont think I was zoomed in correctly, and had black lines and blur around the edges. And I'm not sure about what noisy blues means? Does that mean that the color blue becomes grainy? I'll do more test footage of his adapter and keep postin it for ya. Heres one I just did, I was just messin around tryin to get the 1920's silent film look: http://www.vimeo.com/422295

Overall I'm really happy with it so far.

Thanks for sharing!

It will be cool to see how your footage turns out.

You should shoot some stuff in different modes. Shutter priority vs. Cinemode for example.

Edge-to-edge sharpness is one of the difficulties most 35mm adapters have. The sides of the screen tend to get a little blurry (even the parts that are *supposed to be* in focus). "Noisy blues" just means the blues have a kind of "grainy alive" look, like a bunch of bugs really far away flying all around, making the blue look "alive".
