Provided that I am flying to New York in a couple of weeks I would like to know what is the equipment needed to fit the Letus Extreme on to the EX1 (rode support system, lens mounts, threads etc.)
Is it worth it (pice-wise, quality-wise) to get the Letus kits (and what that should include)
What kind of matte-box would work both on the Letus and straight on the camera lens?

$4,500 ... Hummm ...

That puts it in the same price range as the Movie tube Jr. and that's a static screen adaptor ... better by far if successful than a moving screen.

saw the movietube jr yesterday. noisy image and really bad bokeh, which they readily admitted to me.

No mention of price that I can find anywhere except here on Steven Dempsey's blog: http://pinelakefilms.blogspot.com/20...m-adapter.html

If that's even remotely true ($4500) I've just been scared off for a long while.

... tick tock tick tock ...

Ok, so it appears the $4500 is bang on. What a wonder the phone can be. I decided to call over to Oregon at Letus HQ :) and confirmed that the unit would be available in a couple weeks for $4500. Obviously no plans to discontinue the Extreme, their bread and butter model, so there will still be a "Letus for the rest-of-us."

FreshDV has a podcast on the Letus Ultimat with Hien from Letus!
Great stuff..

The Ultimate really is the Ultimate adaptor.. Have GOT to get this at work for the upcoming PDW-700 we're getting. The Ultimate will also be available with a B4 relay lens to put it directly on the B4 mounts.. How cool is that!

for 4500$ this is the killer of all adapters!

$4500 is still pretty reasonable in terms of adapters. That's half of the movietube LT, and a third of the movietube ST or mini35.
