thats how I learned about 35mm adpaters

The short answer for that is simple. So your video doesn't look like crap.
Ok the longer answer:
All 35mm adapters have one thing in common they focus on a "screen" meaning you are shooting an image that is traveling through your 35mm lens and being displayed on this screen. Now this screen, which could be anything from wax to a frosted cd as you may have seen on that thread, has a problem with getting dirt and dust and small hairs etc on it. The vibratration or spinning or whatever you have in your adapter keeps that dusty dirty screen moving making it harder for your camera to see anything but an image.
hope that helped
P.S. I am currently making a 35 dof myself, I'm curious as to which style everyone is going with. I chose the spinning cd model, looks to be a good fit into a rig that I plan on building later. Here is what I hope to make it look like. http://prolost.blogspot.com/search?q=the+rig
