This is the way I build my own 35mm adapter. This device is used to control a short dept-of-field to give the video a film-look like. Leave your comments. I Hope you like the footage at the end.
*SORRY for my pronunciation in "Focusing screen"..hahaha

Parts:
1.- 35mm photographic lens (Canon, Nikon, Pentax, Minolta, etc...)
2.- Rear lens cover from the 35mm lens
3.- UV rings with no glass (a lot!)
4.- Focus screen (maybe the best and easier to get is Canon Ee-a)
5.- 10 X Macro lens (Achormat or HD work best)
6.- Stepdown ring for your camcorder diammeter ( I used a 58mm to 43mm)
7.- Camcorder with manual focus (any brand and model should work)
8.- A lot of light!!! ( all adapters have light loss)
