Maybe most/some of us are still waiting on lenses? Mine should be in Friday according to UPS. Chomping at the bit myself.

I'm currently filming an advertisement with my adapter for film class. The due date is the 20th, so I should have footage up around then.

I believe Quyen will be making mine tomorrow (Wed) and when I receive it I'll be shooting some test footage using my DVX100. I'll post something soon after that.

Looking foward to seeing it. Something we really need is some test footage. May you be the first to provide it.

it's a goo design, I have a beta unit for the dvx I am shooting some HD with the unit, looks good so far but I am going to try some new achromats and see if we get better/shaper results

About probably means a little more than one stop, or he would have said under 1 stop. Hmm, how the M2 does in order to lose zero light?

Obin, you are also using a micro35, right? How do they compare in your opinion? Do you feel the Letus35 is a better or more efficient design with the vibrating glass? How big is it by the way? Could post some of your HD clips done with the Letus35?

I will not compare untill I get a proper achromat, lets just say I like the design of a non moving gg.

We test light loss with f1.4 lens and it lose about 1 stop. That means the adapter lost less than 1 stop itself. Check the link below to compare between GG and Ariel image, thanks.

Ok, I got you. But if I read between the lines here, I would say that means,
"the Micro35 is sharper, but I will not get to a final conclusion till I test the Letus35 with a higher quality achromat (So the Letus ships with a lower quality achromat?) to see if the problem is in the achromat or in the adapter. But I prefer the Letus35 design."

By the way, the Letus also has a moving gg right?


by the way, are you testing any other adapters like the G35 or the Mighty Pico?

Thanks for the information.

Aerial means?

The gg side is actually brighter.

Grazie

I am sorry that the GG and aerial text has been swapped. The Aerial side is actually GG side, and GG side is Aerial side,
