Possible your lens needs to be collimated. One of them is off. Im guessing it's the wider angle of the two? I would set your BF to the widest lens you have.

I dunno...what's the difference with the Letus35a? I'm getting fantastic HD results with the regular Letus35. I'll have it up tomorrow.

Thanks Jonathan... could be possible.. I tested them some time ago on a digital Nikon still cam... and there was nothing wrong back then. But to be sure I'll repeat this test again.
Getting a lens collimated is quite expensive, right? *sigh*

Nevertheless adjusting the distance on the eeeehrm "other existing cheap adapter" is a major PITA! :-/

Damn...tooo early here. It's 7 am. Just finished with the work out.

"Cheap" ones...I don't think Quyen will like that. But I think he is cool enough...and realize the existent of his adapter is cheaper...but from what I seen...some really cool shots and from what I hear Customer service is cool too....

Except not including a battery can deter me from buying one :)

Cheap? you meant to say "ecomonically balanced price/preformance positive value optimal workflow solution"

:) (I'm just kidding)

I have done some testing with the LETUS 35. The results were as good as anything I have seen with the other more expensive ones. I am waiting for a step down ring to put the adaptor on my FX1. I will do a film transfer as soon as I get the step down ring and report the results.

*sigh* Of course I didn't really mean "cheap".. I meant erm well balanced pricing or whatever. ;-)

And I'm not totally happy with the one I currently own. It's not really plug'n'play...

Impressive!

Really impressive footage, simple; one girl and some wind with short dof; beautiful; less is more.
After I saw this footage I decided to test this adapter...looking forward
to get it...soon by the delivery dudes.
Usually I´m working as a director and DOP with s16mm, Digibeta and IMX.
But on my free time as a challenge I have always tried to get DV look as
good as it gets as a challenge, especially with as "small" gear as possible;
to slam the fingers on some of the "only pro equipment"/ regular film guys. ;))
I love the challenge to get people turn their heads around and ask; is this
16mm or even 35mm. Sometimes they do sometimes not...
This footage is the one of the better I have seen from video...especially DV!
And it´s also a challenge to nail the mini/ pro 35 with simplier camcorders
and adapters.
Keep up the good work QL and the guy who filmed the girl. Beautiful girl btw.

All the best

Carl
