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.
[close]

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.

that's that good info. thanks.

Here's another one, you can also resize/position. This one you will probably need to soften it slightly or use some gaussian blur because its a bit too sharp but once you do so it will look good.

Thanks for sharing! I am just getting into filming and this thread has given me so much great insight, I love the communal information and vibes! My first couple of projects were 16:9 but now I'm extremely inspired to make this next edit 4:3. I'll share it at the end of the brutal Phoenix Summer when it's done, it's going to be all night HD 4:3 footage. :) Cheers Slap!

Thanks for all the info provided here, guys. Some pretty rad setups here!

After a year of experiencing issues with the VX1 involving the general VX1 working issues when out filming and sorting repairs (and often enough very expensive prices for VX1s, which might turn up already broken - fun). I decided on a HD cam after my full length vid is done. I'll keep the VX1 for smaller projects, then.

I went with a Canon XF100 since it seemed tidy for the price and what came with it. It seems pretty decent from the test footy I shot of chasing my dog around, so I'm hoping to get some clips later at the park to fully test it out.

I did order one of those Sony mics, as this one was going cheap. I don't think it's going to turn up, though. Bugger.
i donít think any of you are real, i think slap was invented by my mom to make me think people want to talk to me

Yeah Nick is fairly local to me and I've been speaking to him about the XF series a fair bit, hoping to get mine back from repairs (one of the CF card slots had damaged pins, so hoping to get it done via Canon). It is a cool setup. I did test it with a Raymod I had and was quite surprised how well it looked.

I've got the Mk1 adapter as of today, which I'll test once I get the cam back.

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:

Could you give a little more detail about the mod?
What tools have you been using and what size does the male-male ring need to be?

Would love to try this myself

Yo! Do you have any footage or screenshots of the unmodded fisheye on the ax100? IĎm looking into getting one for my ax700.
