The best way for my movie, hpx300?
on May 19, 2010 at 3:05:06 pm

hey guys, i'm producing a movie at brasil with a low money.
i need a way to get a Dof, becouse it will be a part of my lenguage.
What the best way for this? Use a hpx300(i have it) and store, or buy a 35mm lens adapter?

Now the principal question, what 35mm lens adapters works at HPX300? i hear the letus ultimate is vary well and dont lose a lot of stops like redrock, but letus works well with hpx300?
thank you.

But, as i have hpx300, i is better use lens adapter for work with AVC-I 10bits?
The codec of 5D is vary compressed, i will lose many possibilites in Post Production, and color correction, Isnt it?

and i supose, as i still have HPX300, the coust of buy a Letus Ultimate, and 5d mkII is the same.

I have same nikkor prime lens too.

Up to you and your budget. 35mm lens adapters are expensive and make you lose light- rent.

After this newest DSLRs the cambuilders will create a new solution with a lowprice, Like this new Panasonic AGP100(or somethink like it).
I will wait for buy any think, i will rent for now.
Thank you.

Gosh I have no idea- ask Letus sales about that. And watch the profanity please, this is a forum for professionals.

Letus Ultimate works great with HPX300.
You have to add the Letus 1/3" Pro Full Frame Relay Lens to connect.

Best Regards,
Dandy

I know the thread is probably void now, but I'll throw out something real quick about the letus and the HPX300.

The letus works very well with our HPX300. The only major problem to watch out for here is if you are using the standard fujinon that came with the camera (Heaven forbid) in conjunction with the letus, there is a potential vignette problem. Which is why now we are no longer using the Fujinon standard and switched to our Canon with the letus.

You have to really push past the little box inside the letus system which I am assuming is the ground glass holder. Otherwise you will get a small vignette that is hard to see when you first set it up. So check your corners very carefully. I know it can work with the Fujinon but you really have to push past that box inside the letus, further than you would think you have to.

Remember I am solely speaking about the Standard Fujinon lens working with the letus system. I hope that made sense.
