has anyone put together HPX and Brevis?

Me and my friend is thinking about getting Brevis35 for HPX and HVX.
What is the best possible way to setup Brevis35 with HPX?
Is there a way to connect Brevis35 directly to the bayonet mount of the HPX?

Dennis Wood ...

Kaku I think it's a good idea and you would need to talk to Dennis Wood over at Brevis. There is an Oct. 19 mount for Lomo's on the Brevis so it's very likely some other set-ups are available.

Hi Dean,

I just found out they are working on relay lens.

By the way, I have lots of tickets to InterBEE.

I'm getting the Brevis anyway, I will use it mainly with HVX200 but I could put it on HPX555 if I wanted to since it attaches with 82mm adapter ring.
I also purchased the step down ring for HV20, too. It should be interesting.

I've been thinking the same thing for some time.

I've tried to make it work on a 2/3" chip and it can't achieve decent focus.
That's probably why they're working on a relay lens. Maybe if you had some kind of specialty lens other than the standar zooms it might be achievable but I don't know.

Philip Bloom got the Brevis working with his XDcam. But the point of the relay would be to avoid the cumbersome bazooka look.

Leonard,

I just put it on to HPX555 and found out what you are talking about.
I will just use it with HVX and HV20 for now.
Me and my business partner are talking about negotiating with companies like Zuno to make a relay lens.

Zuno? I couldn't find anything on a lens manufacturer associated with that name.

I believe Letus is planning on making a relay lens for the HPX500 to the Letus Extreme; perhaps the same relay would work for a Brevis or other adapter...

I don't see why you would really need one as 2/3" CCD's provide decent DOF on their own.
