I thought about this. Ebrahim bragged about being involved in de development of the rangefinder and having samples sent to them. I know for a fact SLR magic has these testing programs. Essentially you sign up for a small discount and get the product sent early to you. I see it as more of an SLR sales technique than actually being envolved in the development. So my guess is that Ebrahim applied for that and then poured a bit of catfish sauce over the story.

Hopefully sir ! SLR magic openly said they had no idea who he was, just tickled a nerve - get rid of the thing quick :)

Yes I also emailed SLR about it. They are now helpful and looking into the matter and see how they can assist. Their product manager will be following up on the case.

There is a technical problem with the SLR magic Rangefinder. A rear thread fitting problem. It only goes in a quarter of a turn. At first I though it was the redstan clamp I have, but now after contacting SLR magic it appears to be the Rangefinder itself. See SLR's response on email below. And to understand the problem, see the first part of this video (password: redstan):

What sucks the most is that we have a buyer at the moment. I'm going to inform him about this.

Have you tried full unscrewing the ring that is already attached? If it doesn't fully unscrew, it could likely then be a problem with the threads.Rangefinder ring.png

      Hi everyone!
      I wanted to showcase my passion project "The Night Knows No Shore" here on EOSHD. I've been a long time reader of Andrew's blog and it was his footage that inspired me to get an Iscorama a long time ago. 
      After doing tests with it for a while I came up with this idea for a movie. And you can now see the result on youtube: 
       
       
      It's a project made by one single actor and one single crew member (me) with one single focal length (a Canon FD 85mm 1.8) and one single focus anamorphic lens ( Iscorama pre-36). Don't expect much action. It's a slow film with lots of monologues and no real plot. It's about one young man's thoughts on society, religion, art, philosophy, life in general. Have a look. If you don't like all the "pretentious" talking, maybe you like the footage. Let me know what you think. If you have any questions, just ask. Enjoy!

      Selling three LOMO cine lenses in OCT-18 mount accompanied by an OCT-18 to ARRI PL adapter from Rafcamera. There are some cheaper adapters out there who simply locks the lens and then you rotate the lens out of its helicoid, a primitive and not very satisfying solution. This adapter has a pin which locks the lenses in the correct and intended way and lets you focus using their own helicoid. Changing lenses is also simple as you just pull them out and push them in. I have not tried the adapter on a camera since I never got around to buying a PL-adapter. The lens bodies are worn as Lomo cine lenses almost always are. There's some dust inside the lenses but no fungus or major scratches.
      The lenses are:
       
      okc7-28-1 28mm t2.2
      okc11-35-1 35mm t2.3
      okc1-50-6 50mm t2.2
       
      Covering SUPER-35/APS-C, not full frame.
       
      Price 850€ including shipping. Selling only within the EU (including the UK).
       
      I also have a set of franken-cine-lenses, very crudely adapted. I am getting rid of those, but selling with no guarantee. You could always use the lens blocks if they are problematic. To use them you have to have a thin m42 or l39 adapter as they have a very short working distance. I will include a short l39 to m42 helicoid made by yeenon, and can include a thin adapter to Sony E if you are interested.
      The lenses are:
       
      okc1-22-1 22mm f2.8
      helios-33 (cine lens made at KMZ, not LOMO) 35mm f2
      okc1-40-1 f2.5
       
      I have used these lenses quite alot on an EOS M with ml raw. The okc1-40-1 was my standard travel lens on my a7s as it is so small and covers full frame in 16:9 (dark extreme corners otherwise, correctable though).
       
      Price 100€ for the lot including shipping. Selling only within the EU (including the UK).
       
       
      I am planning to unload some camera stuff, and will list them on swedish ebay shortly, but If you are interested in any of the following  just PM and I will send photos:
      Prices do not include shipping.
       
      Zenit m39 mount, silver lenses:
      Jupiter-9 early and rare KMZ make 100€
      Mir-1 pre-series, KMZ 70€
      m42:
      Helios-44-2 MMZ, damaged filter ring but still usable. Extremely smooth focusing 50€
      Mir-24m 35mm f2 KMZ 100€
      Jupiter-37a 135mm f3.5 40€
      Pentax K:
      Volna 50mm f1.8, LOMO 70€
      Variozenitar-K zoom 25-45mm 2.8-3.5, auto aperture pin removed for easier use with digital cameras. Works in stop down mode now, otherwise it would have stayed wide open all the time. Zoom ring not smooth, but turns. 70€
