Thanks... I like the Letus. I had to mess with it a bit. I only use Nikon lenses, If ur gonna get one i would suggest u get a locking mount for what ever Brand of lenses your using (Cannon or Nikon) I like it alot in controled (lighting ) situations shooting in the natural sunlight @ certain times of day it has a weird look that I haven't really figured out how to set the JVC up for but it's really rare.

I did a lot of research before a purchased an adapter and I like the Letus because of the flip. You do have light loss but it's weird to me how people make such a big deal about it ( I guess it depends on what ur shooting I try to emulate TV or film style shooting and on set THEY LIGHT!) ... I mean if ur outside during the day there is more than enough light, really too much and if ur in a controlled situation than light for it! I used the light loss to really strengthen my lighting "game" so... That's my spiel, thanks for the comment

BTW I check your stuff out it looks real good what do you shot with?

Thanks... I had a ME66 over head left and a Rode NTG-2 over head right for back up... Actaully my friend that held the boom has no clue about any of this stuff he was holding the Sennheiser so some of the aud peaked so I used quite a bit from the Rode. They were both run strait into the cam.

Yeah, lots of people complain about light loss, but all adapters have it. You lose some by adding an extra lens, too. But you're right, outside has plenty of light, and adjust your lighting accordingly.

We shoot with the HD100 with the Brevis adapter. My DP Chad Terpstra knows more about it, cause he owns it. But it works out really nice. I'm sure the P+S works great too, but we don't have 10,000$. And it gives a clean, shallow DOF, so we're happy.

Keep up the good work. Please post when you have more.
