Matching LETUS & PS TECHNIK adapters on set
Posted 24 February 2010 - 01:27 PM
I have a shoot coming up with an HVX200+Letus35+Ultra Primes.
On one of the days we have a 3 camera setup and because we couldn't get two other letus' we rented 2 ps technik mini 35 adapters. The 2 additional cameras are still gonna be HVX200's and the lenses will still be Ultra Primes.
But, what do I need to watch out for in terms of matching the 3 camera's looks?
Does the ps technik give the hvx a completely different look than the camera with the letus?
Or is it just a matter of using same glass and same settings in the hvx?
Thanks for letting me know...

Perhaps you can be the best judge from this audition clip which was a three-camera shoot, basically for the exercise.
The P+S Technik Mini35-400 and Letus Extreme were used on Sony Z1s for the OTS and reverse. A SI2K was used for the wide.
Each operator was pulling focus and it is not all that good.
The Letus had a wider view of the groundglass so a longer lens was used to match as closely as we could the frame of both cameras.
