I'm getting the Hv20, so I want to build my own adapter (static) for it. I have read a lot about this and researched non-stop. What I'm stuck with is how do you know what the distance is between the lens and the focusing screen is?
Here is a list of items that I plan on getting/bulding:
- Canon HV20
- Extension from the camera to the lens, with focusing screen inside.
- Flip Module ( http://hv20.com/showthread.php?t=127...ht=flip+module )
- Support Rig (still need to find something good for this)
Anything that is missing and could help?
I want to build a focusing wheel too, but it's not making much sense with the lens I got (Minolta 28-80). As far as I understand a focusing wheel is a gear or something that helps you control the focusing ring on your lens better. On the Minolta that I have the focus ring is in the front so it moves around a lot when you zoom/focus it. How do I get around this problem?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
