Ok, so my housemate and I are thinking of taking the plunge into 35mm adapters pretty soon.
My house mate currently owns an HDR-FX1, but will eventually be getting either an HVX or a Sony XD Cam soon. Since he also owns a Nikon D80, we're gonna get the Nikon lens adapter because he is starting a small Nikon lens collection, plus you can get some old Nikkor lenses for dirt cheap.
Has anyone had any experience with this set-up? I already spoke to Voleurz and they said they loved it, but I wanted some more opinions.
I don't think we'll be using the set-up for ski movies, mainly short films, documetaries, etc...
Our first film with it will most likely be a short film we're gonna be filming in the desert just outside of LA mid August, so we want some feedback before getting it.
If you have used other 35mm adapters, let me know about those too!
yeah, i figured you would say that, light loss definitely gives a more film like feel i totally agree there, but wouldn't it be better to have something with minimal light loss then adjust the iris to the f-stop setting you want?
we just got the Letus35 for our HVX at the office where I work, and it's amazing. Get lenses that open a lot though (2.2, 1.8 etc) because the adapter really kills the light, so if you plan on shooting indoors, that maybe a problem. I also suggest you get an external monitor, because it may be hard to get your focus perfectly on a small LCD.
