EX1 and Letus Extreme
on Jul 9, 2010 at 11:58:27 am

Hi Guys,

I'm shooting a music video next week and plan to use an EX1 with a Letus Extreme and some primes.

Firstly, any tips on using this setup will be gratefully received as I've never used it before. I have some specific questions though:

1. I know that you can't go past F5.6 on the SLR lens but what about the EX1 lens. Is there an F-stop I should be locked off on, does it matter?

2. Do I just do the back focus by zooming right in on the Letus image plate and getting that sharp?

3. Is it essential to use a monitor or will the LCD screen be good enough for focus?

4. For a better, more filmic look, should I shoot 24p or 25p? Will this effect the edit?

5. Are there any issues with shooting slow motion with the Letus attached.

6. How far do I need to zoom in the camera to avoid vignetting?

I know that's a lot of questions but I can't afford to mess this video up and I won't get a chance to practice with the Letus until the day of shoot. Any help will be a life saver!
