Thanks for the review Alister, the F800 sounds and looks good! You mentioned that the flip image is convenient to use with a Pro35 adaptor but that adaptor has already built-in optical flip image capability so what is the point? I really wish some of those 35mm adapters gurus come out with a B4/35mm system with no optical flip module that is very light and compact. That would put 2/3" camera with digital flip image in an interesting segment of the market.

Thierry.

The Mini35C has no flip, although only available for 1/3" cams at the moment. I would be very surprised if we don't see a non flip relay lens version of the Pro35, which currently uses a B4 relay lens but with a flip prism.

Cool. I think Letus should really also have a shot at this. They have all hardware and technlogy knowledge to come out with something good and affordable.
