HI,

I have heard alot about Letus35 and quite interested in getting one for my Canon XH A1. However, I am a little confused and looking for little guidance.

From above mentioned link I am interested in getting Letus35 Elite. Now the confusion is that this Adapter is enough or are there any other lens or accessories I need to get to complete the sent in order to get Letus35 working with my Camera.

I hope I am making some sense here...

Please Help

Regards,
Murtaza Niaz

I think that you should get a rod support system if u don't have one.The mount of the Letus35 is just a simple screwing-in design,i did try to use it without a rod support with a 135mm f/2.8 , then the adapter fall from the screwing-in mount... :(

You'll need the adapter, rods, and of course the lens mount you want, as well as, well, lenses.
When I bought my letus, I got it for the EX1 with both a PL mount and a Nikon Mount, and the rods. Later i also added an adapter for an HVX, as I rent out my letus a lot more than using it (and will probably get rid of her sometime in the future.)
I would also recommend a follow focus and some lens gears. Red Rock makes a nice set of lens gears which'll fit most stills lenses, as for follow focuses, well I have a Chorzeil which came with my SR3 package that I really enjoy, and I know Arri just put out a new follow focus system.
