    jaquet got a reaction from Ian Edward Weir in Iscorama 36 and Iscorama Cinegon films   
    Nice topic. This one i did with a modified Isco 36 (now cine Iscorama mkII). I used different taking lenses (voigtlaender 40mm 2.0, Nikon 50mm 1.8, 58mm Helios and i think there was a 80mm Nikkor as well) I used the Gh5 on a Letus gimbal in 4:3 full sensor mode. So the final frame was a 2:1 ratio in 4K. Which gave me a lot of freedom for reframing.

    Long story short. Stay with the original ISCO if you plan to do a simple V1 modification. 
    The close focus distance is the same as if you mod it by yourself.
    The additional weight is a problem if you gonna try to screw it in front of a plastic Nikon pancake. You shouldn't trust that tiny lens to hold a heavy lens like the V1 will be.
    So you will need a lens support.
    The V1 does not vignette more than with the original design within the SAME focus range. The distances are the same. But if the front stays 72mm it will vignette at the new and closer close focus, because of the small front element that comes out further than on the original ISCO.
    That's why i asked Christopher at VD to make a 77mm front to get a little less vignetting on the 50 pancake. So, it works.
    And sometimes you want to slide the rear element into the front of a taking lens and stay more flexible in the selection of the lenses. That was the V1+ mod (77mm front and no screw-in rear element)
    Yes, i did them all and even more. 
    DIY mod, VD-V1, V1+, V2, V2+

    The V2 is worth it. 77mm non rotating front, 85mm close focus! But at that prize … Sometimes I wish I had stayed with the original ISCO. Screw it on and ready to go.
    But for serious tasks (first AC, FF motor, …) you'll need that rehousing. But for that prize you can rent everything without headache … It's like a dog chasing his tail – eternally … ?

    You get a more robust lens but you loose a bit of flexibility – because of it`s design (as mentioned before).
    It becomes a real "fat lady" after the mod. And with the close focus mod done you'll need a FF with a faster gear ratio (2:1 like the Arri Cine FF). And this FF isn't a lightweight at all!!
     
     
    When I got my ISCO back from VD, I decided to mod the mod.
     
    A friend of mine – "SFX Lange" based in Hamburg – did the following:
     
    - we made it noticeable lighter (the mount is the heavy part of it)
    - we've added a solid lens support (Vocas) 
    - we attached a torque motor on the lens support (redrock micro remote)
     
    The ISCO is held by the lens support and is just "pushed" in front of the lens (not screwed!)
    Now I can change the taking lens within seconds, without a recalibration of the ISCO is necessary.
     
    Have fun!

    take a look at the pictures please.

    This lens support is made for a PL-mount adaptor – so, yes it is solid.
     
    But, if you plan to use this special adapter (vocas PL-mount support)
    you have to cut 2mm from the VanDiemen ISCO's rear element !!!!!!
     
    The Vocas inner diameter is 2mm smaller than the VD ISCO …
     
    Again, please take a look at the pictures.
     
    bye.
