  • Beautiful Shot!

    Very nice blog too.

  • Philip,

    Beautiful test … as always.

    Since you seem to have an “in” with the folks at Letus, when will this 1/2″ relay become available to us blokes on the other side of the pond?

    Do they have a target price?

    Thanks.

    Peter

  • Excellent kit. Master class work.

  • Tasty! Just ordered an EX3… There’s always more kit to save up for it seems – the relay and ultimate are def on the agenda now. Nice work Phil!

  • One thing that concerns me about this EX3 1/2″ relay is that, unlike their Pro B4 2/3″ unit, it would only be utilizable with this Sony EX3 camera.

    This would eventually make a unit difficult to sell used compared to a B4 mount 2/3″ relay that could be used on so many different camera systems. I would hope that Letus will set a lower price to make up for that.

    I have also seen the 3 photo comparison that you posted on DVI, and I did not see an increase of sharpness between the relay/Ultimate and a direct link of the Ultimate to the stock lens. I am sure that you gain the two stops due to the fewer elements in the relay, but to be very honest I did not a significant sharpness advantage.

    Since the Pro B4 mount is still not available till March, I am guessing that we should not hold our breath for this 1/2″ relay.

    Once again … really nice work in Piccadilly, Phil.

    You should shoot a day or two in Times Square, NYC. Unfortunately we have a naked cowboy there. However, on a warmer day the naked cow girl makes an appearance.

  • Loved the close-ups! The editing seemed a bit disconnected for this one though.

  • Hey Phil,

    I was wondering if you used a hd/sdi flash drive like Convergent Design to get 100mbps. Because there doesn’t appear to be that much noise here. Real nice work! Is it that important? I am looking into getting this set up.
