FS: 35mm Adapter (as built by Worley!)
Basically, I bought this off Worley a couple of months ago and haven't put it on my HV20 since the first week. I used it a couple of times indoors and in the garden, but since then it's been wrapped up in bubble wrap and in it's box. Why? Well, nearly everything I film is climbing and it's just not practical to be using a 35mm adapter setup when I'm out at the rocks. I didn't even take it out since I was worried about it!
You can find all the info on the adapter in this thread (including footage);
I'm looking to sell it for what I paid, so PM me for a price. I'm based in the UK for those who haven't yet noticed!

To add to what has been said:
I try to build things to the highest quality I can, so the adapter isn't shoddy.
It was sold at cost, so what you pay is how much it really does cost to build.
It's a vibrating adapter. But as it uses the Canon EE-S screen, it could be used as a static adapter.
The parts were bought from eBay, JetSetModels, Maplin, and a model store in the US.

I think it should take pride of place in the Tate Modern.
It could soon become a national treasure.

Thanks for that extra bit of info Worley. I should have put that in, but sometimes I assume the whole world knows everything in my head. I've replied to the people who have PM'd me, currently it's still available.
It's worth reiterating the point that Worley sold it to me at COST, and I will also be selling it at COST. Save yourself the hassle of building one!

Let's hope the PO doesn't go on strike. I'm still waiting for a gear I ordered over a week ago. And the PO claims to have cleared the backlog.
Cleared, my arse
