Letus35XL

Letus35XL, which uses relay lens on XL1(s) XL2 and XLH1, is on the final stage. I am working on back focus adjusting now and hopefully will have them available for order in 2 weeks or so. The computer that I am using to capture video, upload websites ... is down so I can't upload any video or picture of the unit now. Projecting price for the unit is $850 and will take 1-2 weeks for delivery. Anybody interested in betatesting this unit, please email me for pricing, thanks.

congrats on the relay unit. your genius never ceases to suprise me. id like to upgrade my letus to the relay unit soon. looking forward to seeing the unit and the footy... now hopefully when i show off my xl1s with letus and a long zoom lens i wont get : "thats a cool looking leaf blower" comment. is it a flip too?

ive been strongly debating getting your flip version.. but i knew it would be worth the wait.. consider this my preorder...

Congrats Quyen, your work always impresses me. I know this unit will be very attractive to all the XL users. And a HD100 version around the corner? Kreep it up, Quyen.

Letus35XL is of course flip version. It's a lot more compact than the Letus35 Flip. Again, no rod support needed. I don't know how the M2 is made so I cannot make a relay lens system for it. I think P+S sells the relay lens separately, you probably can buy this to put on your M2. This unit has:
- Flip part to turn the image rightside up
- Back focus adjustable
- IRIS control
- Support bracket
and all other updates that the newer Letus35 has.
Thanks.

Ah, I know P+S has em, but knowing you, yours would be cheaper (and most liekly better!)..

Also, despite the fact I bought an M2 over a Letus, I would love to have the Letus brand on something I own :)

The mini35 is an amazing piece of engineering, built with incredible quality and durability. Don't knock it. No matter how good, a $800 product is not going to be of the same quality. It's also 1/10th the price though, so something even remotely comperable for that price is amazing.

Yes. I think Wayne has already mentioned HD100. It will be next, thanks.

This does inevitably sound awesome =)

Which lenses would you guys recommend for this setup? By that I mean this new Letus 35XL unit... If I had to settle on 2 or 3 various lenses for allround filming purposes, still with cost efficiency baked into the price, since I am not made of money, which should I go for? I have a Canon XL2 PAL.

regards,

Andreas Rylander

Does this adapter go directly on the body of the camera, or does it need to be added to the lens itself?
