The quietest 35mm adapter?
Letus Extreme, Brevis35, SG Pro and Redrock M2 (the only one Iíve tried) all seem to be fine 35mm adapters.

What I would like to know is, which one of these great tools is the quietest?

(Because of the flip image phenomena I am leaning on towards buying the Letus Extreme.)

I work mostly alone and make a lot of interviews in quite studios with artists, etc. I prefer using an external microphone (Sennheiser K6/ME64) mounted on top of the camera. Itís great but you canít have, letís say, even the quietest refrigerator turned on in the same room while youíre recording.

If Letus Extreme, Brevis35 and SG Pro make the same amount of sound as the M2 (which is not really loud but for my taste relatively noisy) I am quite sure I will have to change mic technique.

Thanks for any input,

When I'm doing interviews by myself I take along a short C-stand, boom and boom holder and mount the mic in the normal position a foot or so over the guy's head and slightly in front. Generally in interviews a person doesn't move around much and you can do it that way. Shooting with a mic on the camera is not ideal, unless you can stick the camera right up in the person's face and he's not talking off camera. Another alternative is to get a relatively cheap wireless, like the Sennheiser G2.

Well, what about adapters?

Looks like you are posting the same question in multiple places. I have answered you in one of the other posts: http://www.dvinfo.net/conf/showthread.php?t=106508

What C-stand do you use/reccomend? I have a mic, but am looking for a stand that can help me place the mike like you describe.

Carl, the Brevis REV2 units (since last Christmas) incorporporated several changes to make them quiet enought to use an onboard mic with.
