Mini35 to super 8?

you also have to build a shroud to cover the gap between the relay and the camera, and hope no stray light gets in, or dust.
In the end I suppose it would be possible, even though it could get a bit tricky, far trickier than I would deal with just to shoot 8mm. Call the people at P+S. they are always willing to help out, and if you have a chunk of change, they may design a custom relay for you.

I have a Panasonic DVX100 and I´m trying to build a homemade mini35. I saw a lot of footage shooting with this gadget and the results are amazing. The shallow deep of field is a great improvement to archieve a movie look.
How i told in video cameras works very well if the system is good, but I think that this mini35 adapters won´t work well in super 8 cameras. The principal problem is the softness that gives the mini35. The image of video cams are sharp and this softness can be help to archieve the film look but the super 8 image is no sharp so the mini35 give you a very soft image, very shallow of field but very soft image. And i am speaking of mini35 with spinning ground glass because a static ground glass give you a lot of grain, so your super 8 + mini 35 with static ground glass give a soft and grainy footage
I haven´t saw mini35 + super 8 footage but I think that the simply super 8 footage with low apertures give you a shallow deep of field... and less grainy and much more sharp.
