TV commercial shot with HD100E + LetusHD100 adapter

Here's a TVC i directed last month using the Letus HD100. When i find some time later i will post my opinion about using the adapter.

The TVC is 38'' in the WMV format (PAL resolution). It aired with a different soundtrack so you might say this is the director's version. :-)

Have a look if you want:

wow....thoroughly impressed. Would you mind giving some detail on the entire production such as budget, lenses, camera rig, etc.? Thanks so much. I'm looking to get one of these 35mm adapters but not sure which brand to go with...your spot makes me want to rethink my options :)

It looked great.

I would be very interested to hear of your Letus experience. As it is the only cheap relay based adaptor it certainly has that edge. I just found the light loss, lens mount and grain to be too much of an issue.

Great image and editing. Any chance of posting the settings/scene file?

Hey guys!

I am glad you liked it!

The scene file was Paolo's True color 3. Since last summer the camera is locked with those settings and 90% of the times i don't have to alter it.

I have more to say about the camera set up but i have to run now...

Soon i will have some free time and will post about it!

Now we're talking! Looking forward to hearing about your experience with the Letus. Which lenses did you use and how was it working with the 1.9 magnification? Great job!

awesome

Thank you for posting this. It really looks tremendous, and I will be very happy to read anymore information you have the time to post on further details. The swish pans are so cool! Were these doctored? The move between the 2 boxers looked like it might be a pickup shot matched in there - but in any case it was awesome.
Hope the guys having trouble panning their cameras got a chance to look at this. It's 25p, and I assume 1/50 shutter right?
In any case - great lighting, set, shooting, editing.....

Hi Miltos...
do you use JVC's camera own viewfinder to track the focus in your frame or put another LCD monitor to assist you?

This was amazing. I wish I saw this weeks ago before I started to go on an HVX craze thinking I could get much better images out of the HVX. I dont see as much great stuff coming out of the HD100 camp as I do the HVX. A friend of mine is hell bent on getting rid of his DVX (he does mostly narrative work) and I keep trying to tell him and myself that its more than just the camera- its great direction, acting, scripting, editing, lighting, audio, etc and basically the overall mise-en-scene in a short that create something truly great. Thanks for posting it.
