An awesome inventor & engineer, QUYEN LE, has succusessfully manufactured an adapter for basically any DV camera you want. It is called the LETUS35 adapter availbale now. Check it out at www.adapterplace.com for info on his LETUS35 adapter.

Currently there is only one company that makes an adapter that mounts directly to the body of the Canon XL series of camcorders without the cumbersome need of using the long stock lens as a relay. They are the mighty P+S Mini35 adapter sold through ZGC. This is the mother of all camera adapters and is commonly considered the best camera adapter ever made.

Well, QUYEN LE has taken the plunge to create an all new adapter that will also fit directly to the camera body of the Canon! The great news is that this new adapter from Adapter Place is so small and compact, it DOES NOT REQUIRE RODS to be upheld on your Canon Camera! After adding your 35mm SLR lens of choice to the front of it, you simply mount the entire device on your camera as if it was the stock lens. It is called the LETUS35XL adapter and is scheduled for release in the next 30-45 days. That's the great news....but the AWESOME NEWS is that this adapter will cost only about $800-900 bucks TOTAL!!

So keep a lookout at www.adapterplace.com for the latest and greatest 35mm lens adaspter for the Canon XL series cameras.

I'm definitely keeping my eye on these guys. I hope, however, that they get some help with the aesthetic quality of their equipment. It looks a little home made. But, if it works...

So does it only work with SLR lenses?
