Hey,

I'm just wondering if anyone has been using the Movie Tube since the last thread? New info, experiences?
Any examples of stuff shot recently???

Thanx!

We now have both the Movietube LT and the Movietube ST available for sale or rental. I just fitted a huge Pelican case for the ST so that it can travel with a camcorder mounted. It is a very nice system. For those in the New York area, I'll be arranging a seminar soon to compare the Mini35 with the Movietube. I'll post once we have something scheduled.

Anyone who wants to bring a Micro35, Letus35 or other such device is welcome to do so as well. ;-) We just had someone bring in a Letus35 for us to fit a mattebox. We got one to work, but yikes, such a homebrew little device. Those that compare the inexpensive lens adaptors to the professional units would do well to compare mopeds to Mercedes.

Ouch! <_<

Keep us updated about the MovieTube/Mini35 demo, I would be very interested.

What do you think the future of 35mm adapters are? They seem to be geared towards smaller 1/3 cameras, although I know there is the pro35.

Are they an intermediate step to something like the Red where digital will natively have the DOF of a super35 camera?

How long do you expect these adapters to be in use? Mostly with smaller independent projects I would imagine?

As long as people want to get something big out of something small these adaptors will have a life. In other words, likely forever.

In 2/3" there is currently only the Pro35. A 2/3" version of the Movietube is at least a year away as they concentrate on the initial product.

Any updated plan for the seminar to compare the Mini35 with Movietube?
I'm in NYC (right across the able cine, in fact... ) and would love to see them together...
I own mini35 (with DVX100 set-up)... I can bring mine for the test (or seminar)
...However... I'd like to see them used with HVX200...
I was going to use HVX200+mini35 for the next project, but might switch to Movietube St... if it really produces better image... especially it solves the 'softness' issue of Mini35...

and
I'd love to hear about the movietube (compare to mini35) from people who know/use movietube...

Thanks....

As I mentioned on the other thread, we'll have the seminar in the end of September, but anyone who would like to can contact me personally to arrange to come in to the shop to check it out.
