Saturday - Letus

Some random stuff around my yard, all shot with the Letus and Nikon 28mm, 50mm and 100mm lenses.

There were some specks on the inside of the Letus that I didn't see so you'll notice that on every shot... :(

Adding a 35mm adapter to my tools for shooting nature scenes has been very interesting. Shooting with the Nikons gives a macro feel but also adds a magical atmosphere which I love.

About a minute long, file size is about 80mb. Encoded to 720p

Lovely piece, one again. This is my first post. A bit overdue. I've been trying to absorb all the great info on this forum the last month and always look forward to your clips.

I just got my A1 in March (surprise birthday present and first serious camcorder) and have been on a crash course of sorts trying to learn as much as possible.

Whenever I need inspiration for what's possible with the A1 I relook at one of yours.

Great work. Thanks also for organizing and contributing to the preset list, which has been an excellent resource.

Trish

Beautiful.

I love the use of the location in this one....I notice a fleck toppish left of screen that apears in most shots....Is the Unit relatively easy to keep spec free?


Regards,



Ian Schutt

Oops! Read the post next time Ian.

Steven, was this one encoded differently? I hear great music but only see a black screen. I have no problems view any of your other videos.

Mac quad , OS10 Flip for Mac viewer.


NEVER MIND. Tried it a second time and all is well. - computers!

Hello Steven,
I watched your footage and very nicely done sir!

If I may pick your brain, please:
What are the apertures of your primes you use (I'm assuming pretty fast)?

and

What do you use, full manual lenses with iris rings, or do you use lenses without iris control and let the camera's aperture control do the trick or a combination of the two or if having used both - what or which would you recommend is the best if I'll be shopping ebay for lenses soon?

Thanks for sharing your art... :)
Lonnie
