Exactly how much they cost me to make will set the final sell price. Originally this was to be a DIY kit. However as I proceeded with my own lens, many challenges that would prevent an end user from enjoying their lens became apparent to me. A serious re-think was in order and this project can no longer be DIY.
That's actually a render, not a real image. The machining will look good, but not as shiny as that as the plastic itself is not that shiny when machined. It all starts tomorrow after 9am and turning this idea into a reality.That looks shmick. I will want one for sure. I am not sure what projector to buy next any ideads? cheers well done Mark thats beautiful machining
Anodized I would say. Powder coating is too course and may clog the threaded parts. The question now is, do I get these parts done in black or another colour. I am really liking the contrasting sliver on black, so might even look into white for the threaded collar.What type of black finish are you planning on using for the alum. parts?
Black it is then The industrial designer came up with an engraved number system for the front of the focus ring. It looks good, but because one adjusts this in the dark, not much use I think.Ideally all the internal surfaces should be finished in chemical black, to eliminate all internal reflections..
Personally, I think having a contrasting white focus ring would distract from the overall finish..Silver..not so bad..
