Frankenstein Camera writes Sionphoto



We're back to the cams again with this from Sionphoto who
tells me about his HVR A1E Letus 35mm adaptor setup
Its really designed to be on a tripod, but its hand holdable enough,
especially if you're used to bigger cameras.

I might try mine with a monopod.

The Letus adaptor I have is the 'mini', whereas other cameras like
the Sony Z1, PD 150 or Panasonic DVX100
need an adaptor with a larger lens thread.

Using a lens like a 24mm kinda defeats the object of having limited
depth of field, so I'd pick a standard
zoom lens (35-80ish) or fixed lenses like 35mm or 85mm.

You've probably guessed the pic was called that 'cos its ahem, bits bolted together...

If I get the chance I'll test it out this weekend.
