< The iPhone 4 with EnCinema 35mm lens adapter, Owle Bubo rig, and 24-70mm f/2/.8L lens. Sick DOF! Thanks to the guys at Vid-Atlantic.
< My 24-70mm L series lens on the iPhone 4 with EnCinema 35mm lens adapter, and Owle Bubo rig. Attached to Redrock Micro DSLR clamp & Manfrotto 501 fluid head with sticks.
< iPhone 4 + EnCinema 35mm lens adapter + Owle Bubo + "Almost DSLR" app + lazy dog model.
JB's review: I promise to post some video asap! I was very happy with this set up right out of the box. Very easy to attach to the Owle Bubo and align horizontally. The shallow DOF is excellent for an iPhone. I wouldn't bother to compare it to my beloved 5DMKII, but it ain't half bad either. I attached my Canon 24-70mm L series glass, and rack focused around the back yard. I recommend this system if you're curious about the possibilities of adding DOF to your iPhone video. I can't quite understand why I love it so much when I own a 5DMKII, but it makes me happy to say, "Look what I can do with my iPhone..." This is just the beginning.
< I had to shop around to get the right +10 macro lens adapters. Since you need two of them, I recommend the Digital Concepts macro lens set. I found these very easily on Ebay for around $17, and they were a great choice (x2). Don't buy the "Lensbaby" macro lens adapters, as they will not work on the Owle Bubo.
< The "Almost DSLR" app is integral, so you don't have to work upside down. Very simple app. Trust me, if I can put this system together in less than 20 minutes, you'll be able to set it up in no time.
