what lenses did you use for the test with the letus?
Great page by the way.
A Zeiss 50mm f1.4
superb work. you have a great eye for aesthetics.
I would love to see this demo with a 3 camera set up for comparison. The two you have plus a 35mm with a panavision camera.
You’re a good man! I’ve been hearing of the Letus and seeing your excellent films, but until seeing this video I still had only a vague idea whether it was convenient enough for me to use in my kit. By golly, I think it might just be something even I could figure out! Now I just need to find some used prime lenses. I’ve been scanning ebay for them and not having much luck yet. I’ll keep trying.
One question about the “golden rule”; is it difficult to keep within the 5.6 boundary? Will a common 3-light setup and a 50mm 1.8 lens do the job? How about outdoors in daylight with a 50mm 1.8?
Thank you Philip.
It’s easy as you can control the light coming into the camera using the stock lens and ND filters
Why do you recommend prime lenses?
I have a heap of excellent Nikon zoom lenses for my Nikon D3 – what’s wrong with using zoom lenses?
Great work! Great video! Thanks for sharing this with us.
You mentioned the Brevis adapter in this video about the Letus. From what I’m reading, it looks like the Brevis is easier/faster to put on and take off, and has the upper hand on lighting. I would like to purchase one of these adapters, and I’ve narrowed my choice to these two.
Any wisdom you want to share about comparing the two?
Hello Philip, thanks for your films and explanations. Very useful and beautiful at the same time.
I’ve been thinking about getting a EX3 and a lotus adapter to shoot my feature. I was wondering if the quality you get using this “tandem” is any different from what you’d get using a EX1 and the 35mm adapter.
How far do you zoom in with the ex1 to get edge to edge sharpness? 74?

The Rookie Videographer with an HV20
Hello Mr. Philip,
I’m a recent graduate of Documentary Production. The university’s Avid System crashed and I lost my documentary. Since then I’ve had to rebuild my reel. I have an HV20. I’m excited that the Letus can work on my camera and only for 1000.00 Is there something else you’d recommend for my camera? And is there a place where you explain online how one can break down how to utilize Final Cut Pro settings with the camera? What lenses to use? What can I use? Limitations? etc…
God, I wish I had a Letus35. I love Digital Video, but love Film Stock better.
I WANT ONE!
You sure do like using Magic Bullet plugins and Primatte Keyer.
we are having the worst time agjusting the letus on the camera…cant seem to line it up, or get it to not vignette…please help.
ok, we also are tilting and panning the camera and are experiencing some delay is that because the GG is moving? we are also experiencing that the GG is not centered in the monitor. can you adjust this?
Andrew. Are you using an ex1? Do you have the optimization kit?
also your delay issue is because you have steadyshot on. take it off, it doesn’t work with adaptors.
I have EX3 & Letus35mm Ultimate adapter, but I still can’t figure out how to shoot exterior without light, every time I try the picture is very dark. please can you help me?
Hello Philip? Can you help me? I have a Letus extreme and use a lens Zeiss 50mm 1.4. What lens are you using this demo? “35mm adaptor demo: The Letus Extreme” She seems to be great for the lens “Zeiss 50mm 1.4″
WHAT ABOUT SHOOTING INDOORS?
AND THE 5.6 LIMIT?
IS MOVIETUBE ANY BETTER?
IT COSTS A LOT MORE
Sorry for my bad English!!!
Can you tell me, Can I use the following Nikon lenses on a Letus Extreme adapter.
Nikon AF-D 14 mm F2,8 ED
Nikon AF-S Nikkor 17-55 mm F2,8 G
Nikon AF-SVR Nikkor 70-200 mm F2,8 G
I hoop you can answer me.

Keep up the good work.
Just a quick question about your shots with the letus extreme and ex1. If you can’t shoot fast shutter speeds how did you do the slow mo in the clips? In post? How, because they look very good indeed?
[...] Elite I’ve paired it with has the backfocus adjustment on it. Either way, you can fine tune. Philip Bloom, who is a guru of DOF adapters, recommends setting up your back focus with the adapter turned off, so you can use the grain on it [...]
