Letus35 vs. Letus35A?

What's the diff?

First off, is the Letus35a for HD cameras? If so...I just bought an HD cam. What options to I have to "upgrade" my existing Letus35 to HD capability? Can I buy the newer "HD" optical parts and swap them out of my existing Letus35 mechanism?

I think there is a little more than just Hd optical parts - new achromat, new motor, no macro is my guess, but maybe Quyen can pipe in and fill us in on the situation...

not sure what the changes are, but...

I believe the 35a version isn't the HD version. He is going to make the HD version, which will be very different.

Don't quote me on this

New achromat shows some improvements but I am not satisfy with just this change. The new Letus35HD is not ready yet. There will be a lot of changes in this model. I am working with machine shops to make the metal mounts and will also improve the look. This unit will come with rod supports, thanks.

Affordable Adapter
