Nikon mount for Eyemo
Posted 17 December 2006 - 05:13 AM
Is it possible to purchase an adapter to use Nikon mount lenses on the Eyemo? I know that it is possible to fit a "hardfront" which has the mount permanently changed.
It appears the Nikon lenses sit further from film. (Eyemo 1.50")( Nikon 1.83"). Therefore my GUESS is that an adapter could be made that would still permit lenses to properly focus at infinity.

I made a cheap mount using parts from old-style Nikon "K" extension tubes, sleeved to fit over the Eyemo mount and held in place with set screws. The Eyemo mount had to be milled down a half inch, so it's not exactly reversible.

The work was done by Steve's Cine Service in Canada.
I'd like to know which lenses for the Eyemo you are happy with for colour work.
I haven't found any Eyemo mount lenses at all that were good for colour.
I have a second Eyemo Q and would love to leave it "stock" and hav some decent lenses for it.

What do you think aesthetically of the Nikons' images? Which lengths and vintage do you have. Which are your favs?
