Movietube or mini35 are the best if you have the budget. Get Cooke Lens too.

Actually there is no best , just a matter of budget and taste.

M2 , Brevis , SGpro, WDR35pro, Letus , will all work with the A1 to give film like image.

Once operational, this one will be the best, without a doubt :

Redrock Micro makes an adaptor kit called an M2 for mounting 35mm lenses (picture below). You will need a mounting kit, but the Canon XH-A1 does not require any extra shims or adaptors.

http://www.redrockmicro.com/micro35.html

Here is a link to a chart showing what they reccomend for each camera: http://www.redrockmicro.com/camera_recommendations.html

OR... You can make your own following their DYI manual:

redrock is going to have a flip version soon as well (from what I've heard)

Am I reading it right on the zakuto site that the estimate for the new adaptor will be $12-15k??

No biggie. Just a little pocket change. :)

Joan, we use the XH-A1 as one of our primary test cameras for the Brevis. The pics don't reflect our new carbon rails systems, but they still look pretty :-)
