letus extreme & HVX-200
on Aug 28, 2010 at 11:47:27 pm

I just bought a Letus Extreme for my HVX-200 and was doing some test shooot. I had a Nikon 50mm 1.8 hooked up with the letus.

I can't figure anything different! Just that everyhting in the frame has soft focus. What happened to shallow DOF? And yes I had the red button on!

Is there some setting in the camera that I am missing?

2.66 GHz 8-core, ATI Radeon HD 4870,
FCS 3, AJA Kona Lhi

He wants to know about all kinds of things: ancient history, nineteenth-century mathematics, current manufacturing techniques, flower arranging, and hog futures. Because he never knows when these ideas might come together to form a new idea. It may happen six minutes later or six months, or six years down the road. But he has faith that it will happen." -- Carl Ally

It sounds like you didnt focus the camera on the ground glass.

-Take the lens off
-Turn off the Letus (red button)
-Point the camera to a medium bright light source
-Using the monitor (or preferably larger external monitor) use the focus ring on the camera to focus in the ground glass.
-Re-attach lens
-Turn the adapter on
-Focus using the Nikon lens normally.
