Product Highlights
  • Upright Image
  • 72mm Filter Thread Adapter

The LETUS35 Extreme Adapter LT35EX72 is a lens adapter for 35mm still camera lenses to adapt for use on video cameras. This adapter allows the video camera to have access to prime lenses that create a shallow depth of field. The Extreme offers the best quality from Letus35 and allows the user to work with an upright image.

Shallow Depth of Field
Shallow Depth Of Field is a very powerful tool for telling a story and getting details across. Many movies use this feature yet cameras nowadays with small CCDs cannot produce this optical effect. The main purpose of this adapter is to bring shallow depth of field film look to low budget filmmakers with DV or HDV cameras.
How it Works
This adapter involves the concept of using a 35mm SLR still camera lens to project an image onto a translucent piece of moving glass. This projected image is then literally focused on by the DV or HDV camera and recorded. All this takes place in a tube.
Quality
Letus35's concentration is on sharp focus, aberration, grains, barrel distortions, audible noise, vibrations and weight making their adapters an excellent optical accessory. They immediately update their adapters, if they find that changes are necessary.
Image
Image is read upright for easier operation and this adapter only loses 1/2 stop of light sensitivity.
72mm Adapter Ring
This kit comes with the 72mm adapter ring for camcorders with 72mm lens filter threads.
Connectivity 72mm filter thread mount

        I use this product with my HMC-150 and the Canon mount.

        As a first time user it took a little while to get the hang of it, but once you have it set up, it works great.

        The one thing I'd mention is you lose about 1 stop of light, so if you're shooting indoors you'll have to consider that. This would be true shooting 35mm film as well, so it works out the same.

              Got this with a canon eos mount. I think going the nikon mount would have been more economical. I absolutely love this item. I purchased a 50, 105 and 10mm for this. Used for shooting weddings. There really is no software out there that can duplicate what this thing does!

              Used with a Panasonic DVX100a Letus35 extreme is definitely a must have for those looking for great depth of field and film look.
              Just a little bit heavy but worth it as it gives a flip corrected footage.

                I bought this adapter for my Canon XH-A1, and let me tell you, the image you get with a mixture of 24f, and this adapter, is staggering. It give such a "Film-Like" feel, you would swear it is film. It's made out of durable metal, and yes, it is a little on the heavy side, but as long as you have supporter rods for it, its no problem. I would recommend this product to anyone who is looking to create a film look to their videos, without going to film.

                Comments about Letus35 LT35EX72 Extreme 35mm Lens Adapter with 72mm Ring:

                The Letus is a sturdy well designed 35mm adapter that does it's job perfectly for a reasonable price.

                In my opinion it shouldn't be used without support rods. If used without you should be aware that the device puts a very huge load on the filter mount of the camera lens and the lens case itself.

                As all 35mm adapters this is a time consuming device as you need to setup your shoot very carefully and pay extreme attention to focus (manual). Otherwise you get blurred, shaky pictures.

                Comments about Letus35 LT35EX72 Extreme 35mm Lens Adapter with 72mm Ring:

                I use the Letus Extreme on my Canon XHA1, the depth of field created with this adapter is quite frankly stunning. It feels solid and built to hold up in a professional environment. Light loss is minimal however fast primes are recommended.

                Focusing can be challenging at best (an attribute inherent to adapters), the adapter is heavy and requires some sort of support. Setup is simple however you need to make adjustments with a allen key which does not allow for instant interchangeability.

                The only complaint I have is about the battery bay lid which is magnetically attached to the adapter. Rechargeable AA's don't close securely.

                This product has a long history and Letus has created an affordable high quality product with the Extreme.
