The next crazy camera mod - comments please?
Posted 17 November 2012 - 11:59 AM
Looking at camera options we are limited. we need a sensor which is close to the same size as 16mm film.
So far the Sony RX100 seems the best move. it has better image quality than the nikon 1, but has a fixed lens which will need to be removed to allow access to the sensor.
The idea is to mount a de-lensed rx100 into an aluminium chassis, with a sony e-mount fashioned onto it with a 18mm flange focal distance. applying an e-mount will mean he can then use any e-mount lens adaptor (ie. a emount to arri standard adaptor). The aluminium chassis will incluse an arri rosette for mounting of a side handle, and will also have a number of 1/4" threads on there to all evf's and other stuff as well as tripod mounting.
I will also create a sturdy fixing point to allow mounting of a loupe to use the existing screen (with peaking) as a proper viewfinder.
I'm gonna go with a footprint to match edelkrone's micro rig, so it will be around the same size as a typical dslr.
Does anyone have any comments? any interesting ideas / features I should employ?

So I sold the lenses and bought new ones for the camera I was using......
