Hi this is probably a dumb question, and maybe not in the right place, but here i go. I have the XH-A1 and was looking to upgrade my setup a bit. I have been looking at videos on the Letus Extreme and SgPro, but i don't understand what they do, and what i need to use one. I know its probably as dumb as asking what a PC is but i would appreciate your help.
Can someone please explain this to me?
What they do? They are 35mm lens converters. They allow you do use different/better lenses on your camera (such as high-end 35mm cine lenses), and restore the much-more-controllable 35mm-format depth of field, rather than the almost-infinite depth of field that your camera natively has.
There's tons of posts on the COW about this. Do searches using the terms "depth of field," "DoF," and "lens converter" and you'll find tons of info.
