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.

Visit to the Arts Lab

Last week we visited the Arts Lab, UNM in Albuquerque. It was great to see some of Matt’s pictures in the dome and to receive invaluable advise by David and Hue. We hope to visit them soon to test some of the first movie files! more info: http://www.artslab.unm.edu/
