Pretty cool set up. Who says you can't modernize an old film camera.

Is the monitor image accurate with the lens image?

Hi Rolando,

I'd be interested in hearing more about it as well. For example what kind of camera did you use and are you focusing by eye or using the video assist? I'm trying to do the same thing, but would like to make it so it can be removed quickly to focus through the viewfinder, then attached for framing reference.

Looks good though.
Tom
