Letus Image flipping developement

I am working on the final stage of flipping the image on letus35 adapters. Below is the image of my prototype unit. Initial tests shows very good results. It improves color aberration, distortions and vignetting a lot. It's heavier than the letus35/35A but still can be used without support rods if you choose to. I am not 100% satisfy to release it just yet but hope to have it available to the public in 1 week. I am seeking testers now. If you are interested, email me. Thanks.

Excellent work, Quyen. Much smaller then i imagined.

Would love to see some frame grabs to judge image quality.

Well Done!!!

Looks good Quyen.

Will you be adding a neutral density filter slot?

There's probably a few people wo may have old Bolexs who can use the gel holders out of their cameras or make their own according to the Bolex design or this might be something you can add to the Letus (E) kit.

What will the neutral density filter slot do in this setup? you can always open/close the camera's iris to limit light to the CCD. Please explain, thanks.

very interesting. Quyen you have new mail

Yestarday I do some test with letus, oh guys in sunlight the image is excellent. Grain=0, ok ther's a lightloss but in good light conditions is not a problem.

I would like to see some frame grabe comparison: "letus35a" normal and "letus35a flipped" so it's became easy to understand wich is the difference...

bye

I believe this unit will work with all cameras. I also develope an addon unit for existing Letus users. Just need to drill 2 holes about 1/4 inch deep and put screws on. Thanks.

ok ther's an add on, but other lenses in my opinion could result in light loss and definition loss... usually it could be better use less lenses as possible...or not?
Which is your opinion?

I'll definitely pick this up. Let us (LETUS) know when it is available.

I just have to point out that Quyen is developing new products while filling constant orders and dealing with customer service promptly. Not bad.

I have a question. Since the image inverter moves the lens over a bit, what side will it go? To the right? That's what it looks like in the picture. I am building a rod support system, so I would like to keep this new development in mind.
