Great to see that there is a dedicated lens section on this lovely forum now!
Ironglass, a Ukraine company, that has been offering cinemodded Russian lenses (such as the Helios 44-2) for a number of years is now offering a completely rehoused version of their lenses. I bought the original cinemods back in 2018 and am now thinking of upgrading. So I am familiar with their optical performance, however I would be interested if anyone here has seen these up close and can speak to their mechanical capacity, i.e. how well the rehouse is done. I've seen a number of announcements around the web from last fall, but no real hands-on reviews.
I'd be really grateful for anyone experiences on these!
I am selling a Leica Summicron-R f2 50mm lens with Leitax EF mount for $570 plus shipping. I am open to offers.
The glass is in pristine condition with no scratches, no fungus, no haze and no separation. The lens is in excellent cosmetic condition as well. The only issue is the front barrel as it has a little bit of play (about 1mm). It is the only reason I am selling. It is an absolute non-issue if you're shooting spherical and it's still usable if you're being careful while shooting anamorphic.
The Leitax mount converts the lens to EF mount. It's the best adapter on the market and it shows. It is worth $70 alone.
Comment or DM if you're interested or want to make an offer! Cheers.
Hi guys, I've been developing a gadget to vlog with Sony cameras. As you know the screen doesn't tilt 180-degrees. I'm selling the functional prototypes here http://maxotics.com/vlogging-mirror-for-sony-cameras/
However, if it doesn't cost much for me to send it to you (that is; you're in the US) I'm happy send any EOSHD reader one for free if they have a real need for it and give some feedback. (Of course, this will only last until my supply runs out or it goes into some "production"). You can PM me here.
Andrew, if you're reading this and want one, let me know your address and I'll send the latest build.
