Thanks for starting this blog. I plan to purchase an EX1 (hopefully in the near future), and I really appreciate feedback on how the camera performs and how it handles in real world applications.

Can't wait to see that stuff with Letus XT Phil.

Which step-up ring did you end up getting? When you screw it on, does the body bump into the camera body. (I ask because the new Letus does that with my FX1)

The piece looks very nice, has good detail in close ups, there is a detail and color loss with 35mm Letus, also it has a little yellow cast, (what lens is it?), looks great on portraits though, has a cinematic/music video feel. Without looks like great HD, possibly similar to Red.
Thank you for doing it for us!

Thanks Oleg. It is actually colour graded with Magic Bullet looks. That is the colour you are seeing!

I will be posting clean stills on my blog later today.

Wow - very impressive, I love the grading you did - can I ask was it a simple base grade in colorista or did you add on secondarys with masks etc?

Toward the end the night time stuff does have a slightly washed out / muddy look but still very pleasing, just not as much as the dusk footage which looks like it was churned out of a Lustre station.

Also can I ask what brand/type lens you used?

That is really beautiful footage, Phil.

I'm very eager to return to London in May next year. You really captured the wonderfulness of Picadilly Circus in that video.

Any chance you could make this video available for download? I'd love to play it back in HD on a PS3 or Blu-Ray player :)

Great looking footage, this should be a sticky for people to see just how good this camera is.
