To be shot in poor avable light, it looks really very good.

How much do you zoom in the GG/prism to fit the frame ?

This is not my own video. I got it from my customer. I believe this is 24x36 frame, thanks.

I figure letus35 customers deserve some discount, I set the price for the add on at $200, which include a new achromat, 58/72mm filter thread at your choice to connect to camera, however the letus35 with add on won't perform 100% of the new version and will be a little longer in size too. This option will give letus35 customer the ability to switch back and forth. Letus35 customers are welcome to send in the unit, so we can make it to the new spec for extra $50. I am also making rod support mount for the new unit too.
I am keeping this price for a while since we get great deal from the local machine shop, they said they didn't think the part was that complex and said will double the fee on next batch, so if you are hurry, you can get some saving here.
Thanks for asking.

Quyen.

Won't perform 100% of the new version, Just wondered what this really means? Are you further away from the GG? What's is the real difference? Thanks

I have made more corrections to the unit than just add the flipper. Barrel distortion, achromatic abberation was the issues on the letus35, now is greatly improved. This version was intended for Letus35HD but I just don't want to use this name since it will affect future developements. The letus with add on will be longer and will need to zoom in more. The add on will give you freedom to choose between the regular and flip version, so this is your choice.

The camera used for that video was DVX100a, This camera can zoom in enough for 18x24 size and smaller. I don't know how far did he zoomed in, thanks.

Yes, you can place order now, it would take 3-7 days before I can ship it, thanks.

Quyen, how much will the next batch cost for new customers? This new flipped version is made of metal and still has the vibrating ground glass element to remove grain (how many AA batteries does it take again)? This is a really great development. Thanks for your hard work.

And does it come sealed tight so dust won't get in?

Quyen,

Are you saying, that Letus35 customers will get the upgrade (with the image flip) for another $50.00 when they send back their older model?

The next batch will be $650. This unit has the $520 value of the old adapter, which include metal mount, dust proof, 72mm (or 58mm at choice)... plus the part that flip the image. I priced it at $600 doesn't mean the flip part only cost $80. It's combo deal. The flip part by itself is over $200. the unit still uses 2 batteries like it has been.

The add on flip part for Letus customer is $200. This is the price that I send to you and you put it on. It requires some drilling... for extra $50 means $250, send it back and I will do it for you, thanks.
