PDX-10 Letus 35 Raw DV footage

Ok we've seen the reviews of the letus 35. I can't say much more then has already been said except a few things.

I had to clean the GG and Lens once they got to me. I think that the black stuff meaning dirt is from a few parts being made of plastic and this is the plastic that has been cut.

Other then no instructions at all this is a great little tool and the first one I can say that works with the PDX 10's lens. It worked straight out of the box.

If I was in the Market for a DOF Machine/Adapter then just buy this one and save yourself 1.5 years of trying to make one. If you could use this for more then to play with or as a hobby and then you want a "Better One" which is subject to what ever better means, then spend all the money you want....

As far as the Picture? You be the judge and jury... I think I'm happy.
Here is the footage in Type 2 AVI and it's still up side down for all you people who want the raw footage...... 256 mb

Here is a 34 meg file

I have to echo the summary from A.J. Briones and the "another letus35 review"
in summary:

- I love this adapter...
- excellent customer service
- very solid construction, very well built
- packed professionally, with peanuts and shrink-wrap
- I wish there was documentation to show how to clean it and set it up properly
-Very good price

Nice footage.
I have to second Craig on the customer service in particular. My Letus was having a bit of a GG issue. Quyen immediately responded and said he would take care of it once sent back to him.
Awesome guy turning out a great "bang for the buck" product.
I look forward to getting it back and having a cleaner image from the new GG he is swapping out.

It seems most people have to clean the adapter when they get it. Maybe they should start shipping clean adapters from the factory?
Some documentation would be nice too. How are you supposed to know how to clean and work with it?

I have a feeling Quyen cleans the adapters, he told me he just started using compressed air to clean them. The dust and stuff might get loosened and shaken off inside the adapter during shipping. BTW Quyen, I got you some more business! My school was so impressed with your adapter's footage on my camera they're considering buying like 3 of them. Keep it up!

There's a limit to the number of downloads for each file you put on yousendit. After that the links are dead.

Mine was one of the first. As Ben, said he cleans them out with compressed air, now.
