1. GH2 gets WIDE from 6mm to 3.5mm

    This is a movie shot with three lenses, from 6mm to 3.5mm, in crop mode 1:1, which is 15mm to 9mm for micro 4/3 sensor (24X36 : 31mm to 18mm). 1st part with the Pentax 6mm (MODIFIED lens, more info: vimeo.com/20766631), some shot with polaroid variable ND filter. Second part, same lens but with a Pixco 0.45X lens converter, found for 16€ on ebay, it's 40.5mm screw mount filter size lens is perfect for the Pentax. The third part is shot with a new lens I've found on Ebay for 46€, a C-mount Rainbow 3.5mm 1.6, perfect for the crop function ! It's very wide, little fish eye effect, but I have a little focus problem with my copy, so I have to closed the aperture, but not too much because it seems I have problem of intern dirts, that can be viewed in more closed apertures.
    I like this 3.5mm Rainbow C-mount lens, it's fun and very wide. I hope you'll enjoy the shots.

  2. Here is my Budget Skater Dolly for DSLR: vimeo.com/25834161
    Here is my $15 DSLR DIY Steadicam: vimeo.com/34310803

    Super inexpensive, super easy to build and super results!
    For $5 I simply cannot complain. The broom sticks are made of thin aluminum. Much better and stiffer than pvc pipes.

  3. How I put together my run 'n gun rig for my Canon 7D. Parts include;
    Canon 7D
    Zacuto Z-finder 2.5 Pro
    Ikan Rail System - cheese plate, 12-inch rods, rod & tripod mount
    IndiFOCUSZoom friction follow focus
    Manfrotto 394 quick release
    Fotomate marco rail (used as an offset)
    Cowboy Studio Shoulder Support
    Mighty Wonder Cam bracket (for the handle)

    I first saw the Cowboy Studio Shoulder support and later, the macro rail idea as an offset, at cheesycam.com/

    Also, this video was shot with a tiny Canon TX1.

    UPDATE:I thought I’d give an update on how much all the parts cost.

    Ikan rail system – $200
    Fotomate macro rail – $30
    Cowboy Studio – $30
    Manfrotto 394 QR – $40 (I already had this prior)
    Zacuto VF 2.5X – $293 (from an eBay auction)

    Total is $593, but please note the Manfrotto QR, Zacuto VF, and the handle are parts I’ve had for a while before I started the build. Thanks again for watching!
