Sony AX100/ modded Nikon FC-E9:

https://youtu.be/VXSkGtjv7t4

I modded this more securely than the original JB welded spacer method. After cutting the tube off, I filed the back of the housing down to the inner lock-ring threads, then screwed a male to male coupling ring to those threads from the outside, then stepped that up to 62mm. Came out way better than I expected.

Edit: No idea why it isn't letting me post the photo, but here's the link:

Hi guys, love all the experimentation going on in this group! Just wanted to share a film I've been shooting for the past year with the Canon XF200 and screw mount MK1.

Very sick vid, and that footage looks incredible.

looked so good! if it wasnt for the audio i wouldve mistook it for upscaled vx footage. i have one of the rare screw mk1's too. eventually want to pick up the xf400/405 if i find one at a good price.

lurked this thread for a few months while figuring out the best option to make my set up work for 4:3. i filmed this edit for three weeks while testing out the meike 3.5mm on a panasonic af-100. the intro was filmed with trv-900 and the HD long lens is a hvx-200.

Not the best skating but this was shot on a HPX170 mounted with a 58mm Fisheye with a x2 72mm spacer and a 72mm-58mm Step down ring. With a 3840 x 2880 Resolution in FCPX some clips were shot on a 5d mark ii just cropped in post with no vig on Fish clips

P.S Editing is not my strong point and i dont think im good at it  ;D

My buddy does 3D design and printing and has connections with aluminum manufacturers. He helped me design and make an HPX/MK1 bayoring over the last few months and they finally came in.




Includes a rubber spacer so the MK1 inner element won't scratch your HPX lens.

Footage:

I run a small filming-based Instagram account called The Viewfinder Journal -- @viewfinderjournal_
Announcement post: https://www.instagram.com/p/CcQHYiJOK6s/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link

@deathlens_fisheye_sales is  helping me sell them.

Deathlens store link: https://www.deathlensfisheyesales.com/product-page/hpx-hmc-bayo-ring-for-mk1-1

I'm really stoked how they came out. Works exactly how a bayoring should. As people have noted before, it's best to crop the image in post-production. You get much higher quality results than zooming in camera. Also, someone else said before that the MK1 has softer glass than the MK2 so the image isn't as sharp. I personally don't really notice or mind how it looks but I've had people DM me saying the footage looks like shit. It's all preference.

If you keep your aperture narrow (F5.6 and higher), the footage looks way more consistent. I also sharpen my fisheye footage just a tiny bit in post.

Been using the MK1/HPX setup since this past fall and I'm really happy with how most of the footage has come out. I have an edit coming out fairly soon so I'll throw it up in this thread. I've been using a homemade (Shane Auckland -style) adapter but I have one of your bayo ring adapters on the way because I'd like to not have to fuck with threads anymore.

Universal MK1 adapter came in, here's a little comparison:



Here are some screenshots if you want a closer look:
(if you right click -> copy image address -> paste into browser and remove the "l" before the .png at the end of the URL you can see the full HD res)


Definitely not ideal testing conditions, but when I've got some time I'll do a proper skating one - first impressions are pretty good!

Have you had any issues with shaky vig even with the image stabilizer off on the xa11? I ask because I have a canon g40 with an opteka and it looks great but the vig is a tiny bit shaky with the IS turned off, which is driving me crazy. Figured I would ask somebody with a similar canon camera before taking it to shop to see if I have a loose camera sensor or something.

That ender is a serious Tulsa banger! The back smith was beautiful too. Sick vid.

My latest full-length. Shot on Canon XA20 with a screw-mount Mk 1. (edit: the first clip is actually from a different cam, DSLR and an unknown lens. but 95% of it is my setup.)

@Burton Ernie @natenola forever and @P2PIMP (and that 80HD one) are all where I hoped this thread would get... just really good examples of street level dudes making good shit in 4:3 with affordable setups. you'd be nuts to choose a 20/25+ year old VX w/ tapes over this

Found this youtube video of a meike 6.5 being used on a sony a6300 aka an APS-C sensor camera. I did a screen recording and cropped it to 4:3 and it looks great. Wonder if anyone is using this as a way cheaper alternative to the Canon 8-15. This lens paired with an 18-105 PZ lens would be a great setup for not too expensive.

Heres a screenshot of it cropped to 4:3. I personally think it looks great and the vig is very sharp. Couldn't get the image to work so heres a link to the screenshot

its got nice sharp vig for a mirrorless lens but its really not that wide. ive seen a couple people use it and only thing id want on another lens is that vignetting

damn the af100 really is like a mirrorless hpx170. i have a homie who shoots long lens on an hpx but uses this cam with a speedbooster/canon 8-15mm as a budget xtreme setup. crazy you can get that for like half or less of an xtreme now.

Does anyone use that meike 3.5mm on any non-Panasonic cams via an adapter? Will it only work on mirrorless? Looks really good, and cheap too.

https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1542242-REG/venus_optics_ve428fe_laowa_4mm_f_2_8_fisheye.html

this one works on sony cameras, have to use apc-s or shoot in super35mm and then still crop in. its similar to the meike but a little softer vig. widest option you have for non mirrorless is going to be the 8-15mm from canon, possibly the peleng 8mm, if you can handle the flares.

this one works on sony and other mirrorless, have to use apc-s or shoot in super35mm and then still crop in. its similar to the meike but a little softer vig. widest option you have for non mirrorless is going to be the 8-15mm from canon, possibly the peleng 8mm, if you can handle the flares.

reason the meike wont work on canon dslr's is called flange distance. the fisheye is so close to the sensor on mirrorless, and its designed for that distance. on dslr's there is a mirrorbox in the way creating more of a distance. adapters not only change the mount but create the perfect distance from lens to sensor too. if it was just any size, you wouldnt be able to focus properly, or at least not focus to infinity.
