Just wondering if you've been able to properly set up the adapter and found it to work well for you, Rob. I'm considering buying the Letus HD100. I found that in these clips you can see the grain pattern of the GG (especially in Letsufocus.mov -the right half of his face flickers from the vibration).

Did you get a chance to shoot & post more recent footage? I'd love to see some more indoor shots.

Sorry I have gone all silent but have been as busy as hell making films and having fun.

Quyen is kindly looking at my Letus which I could never set up properly and as soon as I get it back in the new year I will post more stuff and let people make up their own minds. I am getting a fixed nikkon mount put on for a start as the one that mounts both canon and nikkon lenses was not that stable. I should point out Quyen has been very supportive and is very reliable.

The footage I posted was not much chop - just shot around the house and it was very grainy. I dont think it is supposed to have that much grain.

So I will not be able to say much until the new year once I get my unit back from Quyen.

Sounds good. Thanks for the update. Do stay in touch when you get it back. And enjoy the holidays! ;-)

Anyone else with new footage from the adapter? Thanks much.

I do have a question about the 1.9x magnification. Does it result in loss of shallower DOF? I know that normally when using a 24-35mm lens there is not as much racking available as say a 50 or 85mm. Does this carry over when using the adapter since you'd be using a 24 or 35mm to replace the 50mm? Thanks.
