Thanks guys! it's going to be a nice spot

using the micro35 pro achromat, the letus one is crappy
using the micro35 rod system(awesome rails!!)
built a brace for the letus that attaches on the rails, can't shoot without it, to much lens shake when you focus the thing...

Is there a way to buy the micro35 pro achromat and just that? Obin can you post a pic of what your dvx setup looks like? I'm gonna get one for my dvx and want footage as good as yours.

I'm shooting Letus35 with the HC1 right now. Very tricky setup. The HC1 is not that good in low light and the Letus35 on that and an extra glass is really complicated to shoot with. I'f I shoot a medium close up of a person four feet away the nose will be in focus but not the ear. It's absolutely impossible to tell focus on a small LCD or in the viewfinder so I got a 7,5" high res LCD and mounted it with the camera for critical focus. In HDV 1080i resolutions the grain from the GG is really too big. The result reminds me of old analogue telecines done in the 70's. And I'm having trouble with dirt specs moving around on the GG. I'll post clips later.

Thanks Obin, so thats a 72mm macro or are you stepping down to a 58mm macro? I'm guessing since it came with the micro35 its 58mm

everyone is allways bitching about the grain, I love it, it's half of the "filmlook" IMHO, I would never want to get rid of it....but that is me, some like crisp video I guess...

I have shot tests in HD on the dvx100, I don't feel it's to big at all, I am using the 4AA system too though, maybe that is the issue, try you HC with a 4AA setup

Hey Obin,
do you, by any chance, know the motor's amp rating and voltage rating?
I guess you're running 6V now, correct?

What exactly do you mean by HD on a DVX? Sorry if this was explained earlier. Cheers.

No I don't know the rating, I would have to ask what it is, if I am using to many cells it still works well, I guess I could burn up the motor, but it looks like a $3 item to me, and it's worth the extra picture quality


Reel-stream.com is what HD dvx is

And thanks for the reply.

That sounds to me like a shallow depth of field and not a function of the Letus or any extra glass. What lens are you using?
