Is the Letus a "full frame"?

Essentially, my question stems from the following:

In the digital SLR camera world the most common format is the APS-C where you apply a 1.6 multiplier to get the 35mm equivalent of the focal lenth of the lens. So if you're using an 85mm lens you're really seeing a field of view of 136mm.

I have a few canon EF mount lenses that I plan on using with the Letus Extreme (when I get mine) and wanted to know if I need to apply a multiplier or not. Of course assuming the zoom on the camera is set to the "normal" expected zoom.

On the tech side, I'd love to see footage of the zoom in and focusing set up that you see as you see in the LCD or viewfinder.

I may be putting together a "how-to" for Letus to show the Extreme interface with a video camera soon. I'll let you know.

Steven this would be great. I'm sure there are a TON of new Letus Extreme owners and a step-by-step guide to using this great new tool would help out a lot.
