some letus35A test footage

here's some handheld footy shot with a letus35A on a sony pd170 (with flash setting 'on' for those sony users who know what that means).
all shot with a 50mm nikkor lens.

(link will only be up for a few days because yousendit takes them down after a week i think, if anyone wants to see the footage after the link expires, just email me and i'll send it to you)

enjoy.

Hey Bryan,

The footage looks nice! Just wondering, when the focus is dead-on it looks a little soft. Is that a result of this setup, or the camera is just a little soft to begin with?

well, i always have my sharpness set all the way off, i prefer a softer look myself. if i get a chance i'll do some tests with the sharpness set higher.
i predict that the image might become undesirably sharp, to the point where it looks like video again and who wants that?? hahah

Yeah, it looks nice, it just could use a little more definition I think. Or maybe I'm thinking contrast?

How much did the addon gear cost?

the letus was $350US, i picked up a used nikkor camera at a local camera shop for $90CDN and that came with a 50mm lens. i also have a sigma fisheye that i got on ebay for around 200$ and a tamron 135mm that my father handed down to me. i havent gotten around to getting any support rods for the adapter since its not too heavy and i usually shoot handheld so my hand supports the add on lens anyways.
