Quiet 35mm adapter

Quite 35mm adapter

Letus Extreme, Brevis35, SG Pro and Redrock M2 all seem to be fine 35mm adapters.

What I would like to know is, which one is the quietest?

And maybe someone knows about the amount of sound produced from the P+S Technik Mini35 compared to these less expensive ones?

I can only comment on the Extreme, which is virtually silent.

Here's a recording with the built in microphone of the XHA1 with a LetusFE. I have found it to have the same performance, noise-wise as the Extreme:

There are a lot of sounds there, but none like the one of a rotating ground glass. Good news for me. Thanks! By the way, if you happen to an indoor recording could you please post it as well?

I note the reference to various 35mm adaptors and see that the Canon adaptor is not mentioned. Are these for adaption for other than Cann lenses s (ie Nikon etc) or are they alternatives to the Canon adaptor and if so why would you use them instead of. Is it price, results etc.

Cheers

The Canon EF adapter is merely a mechanical adapter... it does not give you a 35mm FOV and DOF.

I'll sell you mine if you want it. ;)
