Can anyone recommend a way to use a prime lens on the HPX 170 that's easy enough to use in remote locations? Many thanks for the help.

Letus Extreme. Just bring some AA batteries.

Thanks Dan,

I'll look around to see if I can find some video samples of what it looks like.

I have one, I probably should sell it as I also have the 5D MKII too and use it far more often.

The Letus adapters are great but the light loss makes shooting often ungainly because of the need to use bigger lighting instruments, more wattage and more heat. Plus your once small and light video camera becomes long, heavy and ungainly and I could never get the edge to edge sharpness where I wanted it although I did not spend the extra money for the optimized achromat, which would help.

I prefer Redrock Micro M2e, but it's a question of taste.
