[QUOTE=jehugarcia;103670]Edber, Yes it would speed up the process if you could that, I like the idea of resurrecting old glass, talking to my buddy, he told me that 20-30 year old lenses are just as good if not better than modern ones, If they are in good shape of course.
If it will speed up the process, let do it! My lenses are in good shape. I can bring them as soon as tomorrow evening (when traffic clears up) if that's cool with you.
Please email me for further details.
Seriously I was cinematographer on a couple projects for a friend who uses the pro version of the HC1, A1U I think. I really dont care for them.
I have the HF100 which I like A LOT, A LOT and it's about a million times better (slight exageration but you get the point)! I havnt personally shot with the HV30, but judging from the clips I've seen it's slightly better than the HF100 as far as overall image quality so you can't go wrong. And you would avoid a beatdown from this forum for faking the funk with your name
Any ways I have an HV20, pratically new, I maybe shot 1 tape with it then the HV30 came out and i had to have it. I planned on keeping it just in case i ever bricked a camera while hacking it, i would have that one to offer the customer. But with the unexpected purchase, i think i have to get rid of a few of my toys for now anyways,
I'll give you a deal $600 hacked
WOW!!! I just looked at prices for Canon EF lenses, and they are hundreds of $$! FDs are $10 to $100 usually, only the super-fast go for $200-$400, but most FDs can be had for $10-$50! Some even come with a 30-year-old Canon A-1 camera for free!

Wonder if you could confirm my Paypal payment to you on the 18th for the Jag35.
My email to you about the order bounced back as non deliverable ? Regards

What are the chances of getting:
HV20 with hack, appropriate lens (I foolishly ordered Canon FD lenses, not EF!), DOF adapter (with newest achromat), (and possibly handle rig, etc. - unless this will add too much time) ASAP shipped 2-3 day UPS or USPS Priority? If this is possible, what is the LOWEST price it would be?
FYI - I saw a new HV20 on ebay for $599 or OBO... (link)
(I can do PayPal or overnight a money-order)
(If the price and shipping time-frame is right, I can do this - but otherwise, I will just order the HV30 from Amazon (It's $775.00)... because I would end up selling the HV20 anyway shortly after the non-profit photoshoot to upgrade to the HV30 in the end. Like you and everyone else - I want the HV30 in the end. Basically, if I get the HV20 used, I want to be able to sell the HV20 in a month or two and not lose too much $$.)
Hi Jehu, Thanks great, can't wait to start using the JAG35, and thanks for getting
back so quick. Regards, John.
Just wondering if anyone has gotten the flip, how do you like it?
(Hey, Jehu - sorry to interrupt this thread on forging a path for the future of 35 mm adapters, but I was wondering if you'd received my HV20 for the flip hack... Sent from NYC Monday, it should reach you Weds or Thurs... Thanks!)
(OK, never mind! Just got the package service email that it's on its way back to me - thanks for the stunningly fast service, Jehu!)
I just got a camera from Miami, No name on it, no return address, anyone wanna take claim for it?
lol .. . . ummm, yes .. .. Honestly, who does that?!?! :P
Jehu, is there a way for you to do the flip mod in a way that will leave the unit intact so as to not void the warrantee? I am think that you could remove the hot shoe jack (perhaps push it inside) and run the wires for the flip switches out through the empty port and attach switches to the wires, that would hand free. IF the camera needed service, everything could be put back in order. What do you think?
There is a way for me to remove all traces of my hack if you ever need to have your unit serviced. As long as i have stock cameras coming my way of course.
ALSO... Check out the latest video that includes some of my favorite shots i've shot lately. To see the best results though try downloading the file, its big but i think its worth it. Its full res.
