GT35pro Elite 35mm DOF Adapter
Up for sale is the GT35pro Elite 35mm Adapter. This adapter does not come with the SLR lens or the camcorder or tripod. The Elite version of the adapter is a vibrating adapter and comes complete with achromat. The gt35pro Elite is made for larger camcorders with 55mm filter threads and above. This adapter has been proven worldwide and the footage quality speaks for itself. I have sold over 250 adapters to professionals and 99% are really pleased with it. Picture quality rivals adapters costing 3 times more includding the RED ONE camera. Compatible camcorders are Sony FX1, Z1, FX7, V1, FX1000, Canon XH-A1 (extended config), XL2, GL1, XH-G1, Panasonic DVX100, HVX200, now fine tuned for DVX100B. It also works well with the new Panasonic HMC150 which is wide angled at 28mm equivalent of the 35mm format. Also compatible with smaller camcorders like the HV30 with the use of step up rings......These are new and hand crafted by me, the manufacturer. As you can see in the footages below, this adapter produces beautiful 35mm like footage which is chromatic abberation and distortion free. I only make these Nikon mount of Canon mount. If you want one with Canon FD mount, there is an extra cost of $20. These ebay units come bundled with the GT35 Viper rods support which will secure your gt35pro Elite to your camcorder. The Adapter will ship 5 working days after I receive payment. Rods support will ship seperately approx 1-2 working days later becaure it takes alot of time to build these too. Of course I would like to ship both together if possible. When making payment please add a note to let me know if it's Canon or Nikon mount you want. XH-A1 & XH-G1 owners let me know in the notes because I will add an extra spacer rings to make it longer due to the bad macro capabilities of these camcorders.
3 micron ULTRAFINE ground glass for the gt35pro 35mm dof adaptersFrom today onwards, all gt35pro DOF adapters will ship with a 3 micron ground glass for the sharpest images. This is the 'ULTRAFINE' ground glass rated at 3 micron. No other adapter makers ship with a 3 micron ground glass except the entire line of gt35pro series. The images will be even much sharper ( 40 percent more) than images produced by any 5 micron ground glass. Diffusion is slightly better than any 5 micron ground glass. The images are also very sharp with the Elite-X and X-Static adapters. Earlier I only provided this with the Static adapters but I have found a technique to produce these much quicker.
Interchangeable ground glass (3, 5, 9 or 20 micron)
The only adapter in the market using an ULTRAFINE 3micron equivalent ground glass.
Ultra quiet motor

Double condenser config to totally eliminate vignetting

"Good Day Greg,
I just finished principal photography on my short film, and i would like to say that the GT35pro is truly an awesome product considering it's low price as well!
The images are very very cool. Using the nikon 85mm gave spectacular results. And working with the 35mm and 50mm also proved to be a good choice.
Will show you some production stills soon.
Thanks for the GT35PRO! And i look forward to your future products. If there is an upgrade to the GT35pro elite in the future, do let me know yea. Like adaptor to canon lenses or a stronger ground glass etc etc etc. Let me know k! would luv to Power Up my Gt35pro.
And i also found a great way to place the vibrator wire. Can show u a pic.
Once again thanks for your help and product. It is excellent.

"Dear greg_tay67,Just a quick note to say hi and thanks for the 35mm adaptor (Elite). It arrived last week with the rods coming this morning. I think UK customs had a bit of a bash around with it as the front lens looks like it had been pushed out. A quick wipe of the fingerprints and a dab of hot glue and all was fine.Must say, I am impressed by the adapter as a whole and it supplies images easily on a par with the redrock M2 unit I usually hire. I'll be recommending you to the other folks I know and work with around Scotland.
"Hey Greg,Sorry I didnt send you an email letting you know, but yes, we have received them. I put the 5 micron glass in. I am very happy with the results. IN outdoor lighting with the supplied(Letus35) screen I could not close the 35mm lens down below f5 or 6. I did a test where I closed the lens down close to f20 with your screen and still had a somewhat usable image. This will be great for when we are shooting outdoors and need to buy ourselves some focal range. The image overall looks very clean also!!Thanks so much!!
"Hi Greg,I got the adapter and it works great. I've got to get a smaller lens, as right now I've got a canon zoom and the whole thing is quite big. Or I've got to get some major support for the lens before I use it. I'm going to try and rig something with mirrors so I can see correctly. Love how it works! Thanks for your great work! I'll recommend you to anyone. Could you tell me what exactly the red button on the motor does? Thanks again,Susan"

"Hello Greg! Thanks for your DOF adapter, it already got to our post office here in Prague. I have one week of shooting behind me. I am still learning, but the results are great!! On HF100 a have a visible hotspot, I can avoid it by using a bigger zoom. I playing around with settings, the best results I get with AV mode f2.0 (using CANON EF 50mm/1.8 II lens) + increasing EXPOSURE (+4). Cine mode does not look so great. I decided to buy small LCD TV green (7“) to see what I am shooting, because it is hard to have everything in focus and good composition with the picture upside down :). Maybe I can create my own Vimeo account, I will let you know. I am really happy with your GT35pro!"
"This is an amazing 35mm adapter for the price. The picture quality with the 5 micron is outstanding. I used the Nikkor 17-35mm/2.8 and got a beautiful image from corner to corner in such an affordable adapter. Hats off! Wow! I also tried the Nikkor 80-200mm/f2.8 lens and got brilliant image quality. I would say the Nikkor 80-200mm/f2.8 lens really compliments this 35mm adapter.The only problem being that the camera lens is supper long with the two attached."- John
Already received the adapter this week. YOU DID A GREAT JOB. I'm very happy with it now, I have made several tests, and it seems to workprefectly now. Also the quality of materials and finish now, is superb. Many many Thanks
I have already sent you the shipping fees.
Many thanks for your support, you're really a great and talented guy. I will keep you tuned on how it's going with the adapter on my nextfilms.
