MOVIEtube?s interchangeable lens mount system allows the direct mounting of

such as the Sony Z1U, and the Panasonic DVX100 and HVX200.

The MOVIEtube features a number of innovations and improvements to previous
lens adapters of this type. With its solid construction and advanced
focusing surface, MOVIEtube allows you to achieve the shallow depth of
field, viewing angle and imaging characteristics of 35mm film cameras.

Mitch,
That sounds great, but how about us in LA, can you have a word with the LA branch and get them to do the same?.....if not, I might have to spring for a ticket to NY..or the LA branch could have a seminar too, that would be way cheaper for me ; )
Cheers.

Information will be available at the LA office in time, but no large scale event such as this is currently planned. You can always make an appointment to check out the device, but if you want the in depth seminar you may want to book that ticket.

Mitch,
Is the Movietube really 10x better than the Red Rock Micro M2? The price differential would seem to suggest it is.

Mitch,

Is a Mercedes 10x better than a Yugo? Both have four wheels and an engine.

I consider the performance of a device such as the Red Rock Micro M2 to be below an acceptable professional standard. Forget the flipped image (although it's hard to on set). The image is lower in resolution, the mount is imprecise, the rig finicky to align and the depth an accuracy will drift constantly throughout the day, making shooting in any real working environment a real headache. In comparison the MOVIEtube is super-solid, easy to use and delivers outstanding performance.

I guess you could travel the Autobahn in a Yugo, but I'd rather be in the Mercedes.
