View Full Version : 35 mm adapter with flip
I'm really interested in getting one of the many 35 mm adapters out there, and i know there are already a dozen posts out there about it( in fact i think i may have started one ) but is there one at a reasonable price that reflips the image so it records properly to your camera ( is the flip that difficult to film with in the first place )
which one would you guys recommend?

I don't think anyone in the inde scene has solved the flip problem. I going the G35 route.

i am a very proud user of the LetusFlip, it is the only indie adapter that delivers the image to the camera the way the eye sees it.
at 600 dollars, i believe it is very good value for the money.

does flipping the image mean turning it vertical or horizontal?
if i got it right using a magnet will turn it vertical and rotating the dvx lcd for a self shot would in addition with an adapter show a correct horizontal image ???
so lets just get used to the idea of turning our backs on the set.

I'd like to see some more footage of this Letus flip. For $600 is sounds just too good to be true ;) and the postage is free on that right? The M2/3 charge about US$140 to ship to NZ. Insane!
Anyway, if you have some footage I'd like to see it.
Do you find the letus image to be pretty clear, without vignetting?

Didn't Wayne Kinney have a flipping version of his SG35 up his sleeve ? :) I thought he was supposed to announce it sometime tihis month and I'm actually waiting to see what he comes up with before I make a purchase decision.

Dunno, didn't catch that one! ;)
Letus seems good to me, just because of the low price. I don't make money doing this, and so long as I can get a reasonably clean picture without vignetting, I'd be happy. The redrock is a little more expensive.
