Got my Letus, lenses, jib..heck yeah!

I am excited, can't you tell? I got my Letus35 Flip enhanced and my 14ft crane jib kit today, along with 4 different Nikkor lenses. I cannot wait to try this stuff out with my new A1. My Letus looks great except that it looks like it has little tiny pieces of plastic on the inside of the lens housing. I guess this means I am going to have to take it apart and clean it. Is this normal for you Letus lovers? I will post some nature footage when I get a chance to get out and shoot some. Family stuff this weekend has to be first. But I will get to it next week. J

I purchased the 899.00 Kit listed on ebay by "Bargain Camera?" I think. Has the zoom commander, bag, case, video monitor, all cables, battery pack, mounts..everything but the weights. It comes with a lifetime warranty. They offered the kit to me for 750.00 a few months ago and they honored that price for me this week. This is a very nice kit and well put together.

John, please keep us informed how the crane goes. I found the seller and I'm very interested in knowing if the crane kit is as good as it looks :-)
I'm especially interested if you can calibrate the LCD of the kit

I dont think the letus is supposed to come with loose plastic pieces in it - maybe in the shipping something got dislodged?

I'm envious of your new purchases! Looking forward to some footage with the new tools.

My plastic wasn't loose, just a few tiny particles where the plastic housing was machined. I took it apart and cleaned it thoroughly. Works great now. I bought a 28mm, a 50mm, and a 100mm lens and also a 35mm to 105mm zoom. However, I do not think I need the zoom or my 28mm so I am going to sell them both. They are Nikon Nikkor lenses.
