Well, one of my parts I ordered still hasn’t gotten to me yet (yay slow shipping from China). It should arrive within a day or two, but who knows right now. So I don’t actually know if mine will work or not.
As far as my grounding glass, I was planning on heading down to the craft store and picking up some microcrystalline wax (as that is the best static grounding glass system). However, I was looking at lamanation (sp?) plastic, and I’m wondering if I might try that before hand since it might be an easier setup (though probably not as good).
The good thing is, your VX2100 has the same thread size as mine, so you could potentially make the same exact setup as mine. And of course, you don’t have to buy that part from China (though it might cost a bit more) 😀 .
I don’t know if I mentioned it before, but my system is designed to work with all Canon EOS (EF and EF-S) lenses for Canon EOS SLR and D/SLR cameras. So you’ll want to pick up one of those if you don’t have one. Most people suggest an f/1.4 or f/1.8 with a maximum of f/2.0, but I’ll be trying my father’s f/4-5.6 lens so that if it works, I won’t have to buy another lens. I’ll let you know what works for me. Hopefully in the next few days I’ll be able to document everything including pictures and such.
Sorry I can’t help further right now. I knew the shipping would be slow, but I didn’t think it would be slower than molasis on a cold day!
