Im trying to wrap my head around a package that makes sense. And it just may not. But... obviously 2/3 cameras start to compress dof around 45mm or so. But any thing wider than that is no where near what a 35mm setup does for its equivalent wide angle dof. So I picked up a redrock m2 as an affordable experiment. Without a relay and messing with misc achromats that I have laying around it seems the possibility might be there. But also you could have to zoom in so far to block out all the vignetting and aberrations that its not really a wide angle shot anymore. For you guys who invested in real kits with relays.... Does it work? 

 

edit: Not saying the m2 doesnt work. Saying I havent yet invested in a proper kit of a relay or large expensive achromats. Also the M2 appears to be designed for the smaller handhold style camcorders.

Sorry rereading it seemed a bit open of a question. This is what Id like to know:

 

If you used a relay system to keep the overall system small... what do you think the equivalent focal length would be of the tv lens its replacing? Before you factor into account the focal length of the 35mm lens youre using on the other side of the adapter.

 

Do you feel like your getting true wide angle shots with shallower depth of field?

 

What was/is your favorite kit?

 

If youre more comfortable doing so please email me: stevewaschka@earthlink.net
