HD100 Letus35 w/ Scene Files

Aloha,

I did some tests today with my HD100 and Letus35flip. I added some of the different scene files settings found on this site and shot the same thing to see how they looked. These are all shot with a Nikon 55mm lens at f2 in 720p24. Captured in LumiereHD and converted to 720p24 DVCProHD, and edited in FCP 5. I used Tim Dashwood's "Bleach Bypass", "Filmvert", "Reversal", and Paulo Ciccone's "True Color v3".

This one is large stills of each setting. Just go through frame by frame:

If you want to watch all the setting play side by side, use this one:

This is the largest file. It is all the looks playing back to back.

Just thought I would share my test. I like all these looks for different things.

I agree that each is usefull for different things as well. I am a big fan of the Film Vert because of it's Desaturated looks, but lately I have been enjoying Paolo's True Color 3 because in post I can always throw out extra color.

All are cool though.

Amos,

1.5 stops of light loss with the Letus35flip.

To get this number I shot a chart with both the stock lens and with the adapter and Nikon lens at f2. I used the camera zebras to set the white box on the chart to 100ire with both set-ups. I then compared the difference between the f-stop on the Fujinon lens.

With the Fujinon lens at f5.6 with no adapter, when I put the adapter on the camera I needed to open the iris on the Fujinon lens to a little more than f4, but not qute f2.8.

I haven't done much with resolution testing, but I think I was loosing about 100 lines of resolution when I did.

Dusty, how did you get the Letus35? I went to the Letus35 website. There it states that the adapter for the HD100 is still under development. Are you beta testing?

Oscar,

My Letus35flip is a 72m screw on adapter that will work with almost any camera. Just send Quyen an e-mail and he will sell you one.

I am beta testing the Letus35HD100 which mounts directly to the body of the JVC and replaces the stock lense. Quyen currently has my Letus35HD100 for some modifications.

Do you have a photograph of the letus35 mounted directly to the body? I'm curious about the dimensions... but I'd also just like to see it.
