In my opinion, this looks mighty sweet =)

And I would assume it works perfectly with XL2 in Pal, 16:9, 25p aswell? Cause then my only question would be whether or not to buy this Letus35XL or the flip version for my Canon XL2 Pal... hmm... any thoughts and/or hints people? o_O Cause I am not sure which route would be the best for me?

regards,

Andreas Rylander

For me things are clear : if this Letus35XL is well built I'm gonna buy it. I'm only waiting for Quyen to post some images of his finished product, either on his website or here.
Of course I would like to see some other footage before ordering (post some footage I can open Quyen) but his reputation regarding build- and image-quality is ok.

I think having a relay lens with iris control is such an important improvement. Adding glass on top of glass never seemed a good idea to me : I'm sure Quyen's solution will be more lightsensitive (less lightloss), and less bulkier.

Can't wait to order!

YES!!! my camera will no longer be referred to as the leaf blower.. or the goose neck.. that looks extremely sturdy. I love the size comparisons. decked out with some rails and a mattebox thats going to look some sweet... I think ill be leaving my 16x at home from now on.. actually... i just might sell it to add to my 35mm collection. i dont think ive used it alone since ive got my letus...

So, any word on whether you'll offer the relax lens seperatly! You would certainly have one buyer here.

Thanks for all comments. Since the connection to the camera is stronger than I expect, I won't include the bracket with the unit which will make it look less professional. Relay lens for other adapters will be on my to do list. Thanks.

Hi Quyen,

Congrats on the new adapter. When can we expect to see some frame grabs. I'd love to see a resolution comparison between your lens and the 16x.

That's really impressive. Can someone explain to me why there's a need to put an iris or an ND filter at the back of it though? I'm afraid I'm not very knowledgable on the aspects of relay lenses or direct-to-body adapters.

ben.. its like with your gl2. when you shoot something outside lets say, everythings totally overexposed. so you have to compensate by either using the nd filter built in on your camera, playing with the aperture on the 35mm lens or the aperture on your 16x (20x)lens. if you still wanted to maintain the same DOF then you would want to leave your slr lens as wide open as possible... by darkening any other way (nd, camera iris etc..) it wouldnt affect the DOF. with the xl series, since the lenses are interchangable the nd filter switch is actually on the 16x (or 20x) lens.. so by leaving out these lenses, the relay needs to have that option to be able to control the brightness of the picture to expose corrrectly.
