  1. So get a step up or step down ring from XXmm to 55mm, put the redstan on an adjust distance with the thumbscrews? Seems easy enough
  2. On the main page of this website, Andrew has a picture of a pocketcam with a blue spacer ring. Anyone know who makes that? Looks convenient for lenses that aren't deeply recessed.
  3. Very cool. Thanks Rob Any experience going wider than a 35mm? I'm wondering what the widest I can go with this Isco and an s35 sensor
  4. I'm looking for a wide angle option for my S35 camera and Pre/36 Iscorama. Right now all I have is a 50mm. Any suggestions out there for older lenses that won't vignette on an s35 sensor? I heard the AIS Nikkor 28mm f/2.8 wasn't a bad option Thanks
  5. No actually I am still looking. I search everyday but sure if you wanna venture out in the darkness and brave the winds, Ill remain humbly under my warm covers waiting for the day, counting the seconds until you toss a Tokina doublet onto my door step, waking me from my hibernation and completing the holy trinity of glass triumph. Ill loan you a horse. A fine horse.
  6. Has anyone figured out how to put a hard stop back into the ring after the mod is finished?
  7. Let me know if anyone has one or knows someone who is selling one. Thanks rgdfilms@gmail.com
  8. Shooters, Thinking about doing the upgrade but wanted to field some opinions. How do you guys like it? Any negatives? How does it now affect which taking lenses you can use? I imagine the front element of the taking lens can't sit nowhere near as close as pre modification so I'm curious if that's a big impact on choice. Thanks Rick
  9. Do you guys have a formula for resizing your Pre36 Iscorama footage within FCP7 specifically. Right now I import at 1080P and but a -40 distortion on the height by using the built in adjustment tool when you open up a clip. Is this what other people are getting or am I off? I came to this number by shooting tests with focus charts and eyeballing and maybe my logic is off.. but I remember someone saying this is actually a 1.4x lens so 40% distortion..
  10. Thanks for the replies guys. That's what I'm basically trying to figure out. If I were to ever re-sell this Iscorama, I'm sure the potential buyer would dock me for not having the "complete" set. Makes sense for guys like us to use better glass but from a collectors point of view, it still has value. So my question is, what percentage of the overall used cost of a Pre 36 single coated Iscorama would be allocated towards the "taking lens"? 15% ? 30% ? I'd rather just negotiate with this particular seller a comfortable refund amount for the price I paid for the entire package because I feel I was a little misled. For me it just hurts resale value and that's what I'm trying to figure out here.
