The LETUS35 Extreme Adapter LT35EX62 is a lens adapter for mounting 35mm still camera lenses onto video cameras. By allowing the use of photo lenses on your camcorder, the adapter provides greater control over depth of field, which creates a more cinematic image. 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 camcorders with small sensors cannot produce this optical effect. The main purpose of this adapter is to bring a shallow depth-of-field film look to low-budget filmmakers using DV or HD video 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 focused on by the camcorder and recorded. All this takes place in a tube.
Letus35's concentration is on sharp focus, aberration, grain, barrel distortion, audible noise, vibration and weight--making their adapters an excellent optical accessory. Adapters are updated regularly as changes are deemed necessary.
The image is read upright for easier operation, with the adapter losing only 1/2 stop of light sensitivity.
