Ok so there was a previous forum thread regarding a rehousing project for the LA7200. Based off the video there, I have had this design in my mind for my own rehousing project and improvements as well for close focus and/or marrying the LA7200 with a manual focus lens and making an all in one lens solution for the Canon 5d Mark III. Progress is starting off well. Getting the hang of AutoCAD and designing as such. I am planning on first prototyping with a 3d printer I have access to then going to a further manufacturing step from there. Not trying to get too ahead of myself however you can keep track of the progress and id appreciate comments or suggestions regardless as I try to work this out. Steps: Design model in AutoCad --- 15% Port model into Google Sketchup 3D print prototype Test Prototype Test again.... Make changes... Probably test again.... Use AutoCad model for CNC machining Produce final model. Planned features... Close Focus and far focus at a twist of the ring. Easy to handle enclosure Focus ring easy lens adjustment Standard housing to fit Cokin P or other diopters much easier Possible features 15mm rail mount auto adjusting focus solution Housing combined with Aperture adjustor on a Canon FD manual Lens Direct connection to the 5d Mark III basically making it a hack lens using a custom EF mount or 72mm thread AF confirm chip? (not a bad idea) All the lens flares! (ALL THE LENS FLARES!) Er multicoating removal. Something like that. Close to exact Measurements via caliper - (short of cutting the existing enclosure in half. I could not get the measurements exactly for how close the back and front lens elements are in terms of distance) Front Element - Concave Width: 84.90mm Height: 72.96mm Depth: 16.25mm Rear Element - Convex Width: 52.96mm Height: 40.99mm Depth: 4.13mm Front Element Holder depth - 17.82mm Outer Hood Depth - 13.14mm Approx 23.8mm distance between the two lenses. (not entirely sure on this. Like I said, cant figure it out unless i cut the thing in half and really I want to be able to use it until the enclosure is finished at least) All in all, working pretty well so far. Got the elements into AutoCad, and its time to start designing the enclosure for it.
Hello all! I am new here, so this is my first post/thread here ever. Today I got my Panasonic Lumix GH3. Before I have used Olympus OM-D E-M5 and Fujifilm X-E1/X100s for video recording. I have never used a camera that allows me full control during video recording before. I ordered the GH3 because I am going to make a documentary movie about a motorcycle club during this coming summer. They ride together every Monday during the summer period. I am going to follow them. I am going to record video from the places they visit, maybe some video during their rides. Making interviews etc. During autumn after the season is over - I am going to edit the movie and burn it to DVD:s. Then sell the movie to the members of the motorcycle club (a few hundred members). The selling point of this documentary is the nostalgic value. It doesÂ´t need to be the most professional looking movie. But I would like to make it as good as I possible can. I have a few months to prepare myself, training video recording with the GH3. I would love to get some tips of what I need for this project. Rigs (for walking), shotgun mics etc.? I live in a PAL-area; what frame rates are recommended; 24p, 25p, 50p for different situations (interview, motorcycles moving...)? In full manual does it go the double shutter speed over the framerate (like 1/50 for 25p etc.)? All tips are deeply appreciated!
Hey guys.. I need to hook up with some Panasonic buddies!!!! I have no body in the area who loves and shoots video like me. Its dead over here as far as filming and cinematography community.. I'm in Clinton MD, southern md, by the Andrews Air Force Base. Any one else happen to be close by like within 50 miles... Trying to hook up, go out and shoot anything, talk about our cameras and lens and parts, go check some new movies at the theatre, grab some food n' Shoot!! Whose down?
