Tomasz,

can you post any picks of your adapter? I just had my dvx upgraded with the andromeda setup and the grain I get with my letus way too noticeable. Either I need to fix it or move on to a new adapter. What you did sounds really interesting to me. I've asked Queyen via email a few times about getting a new GG from him but have never heard back... anyone else out there been able to do this?

Ettore Giraldi used nivea cream on his adapter (http://dvinfo.net/conf/showthread.php?t=64232) and managed to come up with some of the best 35mm footage I've ever seen (IMPO). I don't know exactly what was the process though. If these results could be achieved with the letus35 it would be a dream come true.

Good point Raphael... does anyone know how best to apply it to the GG? Doesnt look like any of his footage is still live. Also, is the GG cleanable?

My notes:
more light, clean picture (even in high speed shutter 1/120-1/250) and the same DOF.
Its only my personal opinion and i'm not recommend to anybody to do it yourself.

This is what I mean by more diffusion:

Watch how the CF-3 diffuser (more diffusion) has SHALLOWER DOF even though the lens is set at the same f-stop.

Nivea creme decreases diffusion and thus decreases effective DOF. It's a simple fact, if you're getting less lightloss you're getting less diffusion, and thus deeper DOF, and thus a less effective adapter.

Actually, I like the sounds of that. I've been trying to deepen my DOF slightly with the Letus, the problem is I cant stop down hardly at all without losing too much light and getting nailed with major GG grain.
