Ben, can you give us the dimensions of that D100 screen? Does it have any tabs or the like?

Sorry for not being around for a while, I've been busy trying to get my new Opteron system up and running...turns out you need *purely ECC registered* RAM for it...won't run on plain unbuffered...*mumbles*...like owning a BMW, eats only Premium gas...

Yes, I'll try to shoot out of focus lights at night with it, although I'll have to switch it back in to the Letus, (had to switch it back out for a shoot). No, it has no tabs, and is a hair's breadth bigger than a 35mm still slide in all directions.

I just got Nikon D100 replacement screen from ImageGallery and it measures 36mm in width and 25mm in height to be exact.
And as Ben stated it is absolutely clear and comes for 1/4th of the price of a Beattie screen.
Quick observational test showed that it`s frensel isn`t as fine as Beattie`s and it will possibly show more chromatic abberations than a Beattie would but I guess it wouldn`t be a problem in real life applications.

Next week I might be able to show some HVX200 test clips with D100 vs Beattie.

Ben, if you gotta switch it out, before you do, shoot an A:B test with whatever is in your Letus now! :-)


Toenis, sounds awesome, can't wait to see a comparo of those two too.

So far I´ve done visual tests with Beattie for Contax, Nikon D100 and Canon precision matte microlens screens and it seems that Canon is the only one with nice sharp bokeh but then again it really depends on what lens I put on my adaptor.
I´ll post some samples next week.

I´ve been also wondering what would happen to Canon screen when one adds Maxwell`s coating to it.

Toenis, which Canon screen in particular are you using? Just curious. I've done tests with the Nikon D and I'm trying to get one of the D100 screens to try out also. I've looked at the Canon screens but they've all got focusing circles or other markings.
