adapter rings

I've been reading through these forums and asking a alot of questions. So here's another one...lol. Sorry!

The Letus35A comes with either a 58mm or 72mm mount. If I'm getting the 58mm mount for use with let's say a pd170 for now but in future, I rent/buy a DVX instead, which type of adapter ring would be suitable for use? Could someone post links or pictures of suitable adapter rings?

Adapter Rings

Hi Zul

You can probably get adapter rings at video shops or photo shops at Peninsular Plaza.

If you get the 58mm Letus you probably have to stack 2 rings to get to 72mm cameras i think.

The problem with stacking rings is that one might get stuck.
In my case i stacked 3 rings - 43mm to 55mm to 72mm. Now i cant get the 43mm off the camera.

http://www.camerafilters.com/pages/adapterrings.aspx is where you can order adapter rings from the US. If you do, maybe i might piggyback on your order :)

cheers

Woohoo, a fellow Singaporean! Actually, I've just made an order from ClubSnap, if you're familliar with it, for a 72-58 stepdown. Getting it this weekend.

Quyen, dont mind my asking, how many orders to Singapore have you got ever since you started production on the Letus35?

So have you gotten your Letus? I got mine last week or so... just got a chance to hook it up to a Panasonic DVC 32... It gonna take a lot of getting used to..
but love the DOF look :)

I wont comment on the quality/light loss at this point, wouldnt be fair to i guess... looking forward to setup test footage though..

Hey

Yea, it is a forum and you'll need to register. It is under Mass Orders/Mass Sales sub forum. Keep a look out whenever someone is doing a mass order for accessories and such.

I'm not lucky however because I ordered 52-72 step up and a 72-58 step down (sounds funny but they are both for diff purposes) but they are not available. I guess it's simpler to order through an online store? I dont have MasterCard or paypal so if you wanna make an order let me know. We can meet and I'll pass you the cash.

But if there's a store locally that sells the above two, I'd rather buy from there instead lol. I'm not for stacking many rings.
