HVX200 Letus Extreme "AMONG US" short

Here is a clip of my second time with the Letus.

I hope you enjoy it. I sure did shooting it. First time I take tame to do something I like that I didn't get paid for.

Tell me what you think about it.

Douglas,

Thanks for the animals video. Pretty nice. I do lots of bird videography as well - using Canon XL2 (the only camera in that price range that features interchangeable lenses). Only problem - it is SD, not HD. Right now, I am "hooked" into Panasonic P2 system - don't think I want to go back to tapes again.

Regarding the Letus Extreme that you used - if I use a long range 35mm telephoto (something like 70-210 f/2.8) - do you forsee any problem with that adaptor? How about 300 f/4 with 1.4X teleconvertor?

Also, what is the conversion ratio like (if any)? Namely, a 50mm 35mm lens with the adaptor is equivalent to ... 50mm?

Thanks,
TS

1. Not as long as it is supported.

2. No conversion needed.

I used an 80-200 mm f2.8 for most of the film.

You can also zoom in camera and more than double your lens range.

Thanks for the reply. Will think about that then. Currently, I am using the 2X teleconvertor from Century Optics. If I require a longer reach than that - for birds, there is no such thing as "too long a lens" ... will consider the Letus Extreme approach then.
