Just did some more test shooting with the Letus Extreme. I cleaned the entire adapter and checked everything via the SDI output on a HD broadcast monitor just to be safe. Shooting with the adapter is harder then I thought, there is a lot to take into account. If you close the aperture on the front lens too much you see the ground glass and if you use an ND your focus changes etc. On my last shots during the day I later found out that some dust had settled on the ground glass. I didn’t see this on the camera lcd so I am thinking of buying a ref portable, probably a Nebtek. Should it be an SDI or component monitor? Oh, and tell me how you like the footage.

The internal ND of the Camera? Your focus changes because the ND is messed up in the EX-1 (still?). Not a flaw of adapter usage, a flaw of the EX-1 itself.

Most "low cost" cameras suffer this problem, my solution: A mattebox with ND filters.

Glad you liked it. This weekend I will be doing another shoot, one that involves some more wide scenic shots. Something I feel the depth of field and therefore the adapter doesn't really do much, it starts to look like video again don't you think?
