Spending the afternoon at Bill Mitchell’s place, testing the timelapse equipment with the Sigma 4.5mm.

Have managed to connect my old Nikon FC-E9 fisheye adaptor onto Bills Sony HDR-CX700V video camera giving a real nice quality 1k Circular output, so it looks like we might have sussed out our behind the scenes documentary rig.

Also testing out the FC-E9 adaptor on Bill’s Sony NEX 5 as a possible solution to allowing him to be shooting on up to 5 bodies at once!

The Nikon adaptor also fits Bills Sony Video camera so we think this might become our 1k behind the scenes full dome format Rig.
