This Bundle now ships with the new Letus TaG Support System and a new style of carrying case (not pictured)
The Letus Elite is our mid-range adapter. Our most popular adapter. This adapter shares the same features of the Extreme but adds a back focus adjustment ring and the same optimized achromat lens found in the Letus Ultimate. A hybrid for the intermediate / pro level users.
Who It's For
We designed this adapter to meet the needs of more demanding users in fast paced production environments. If you are looking for a great 35mm adapter and aren't quite ready to invest in an Ultimate, the Elite is the best option available. It is a very popular adapter suited to both beginner users and professionals. This is the adapter we most often recommend for most users in the beginner to intermediate levels.
The Elite is basically a hybrid of our entry level adapter, the Extreme, and our flagship model, the Ultimate. Like the Extreme, the Elite uses a vibrating ground glass design and shares the same prism housing. Like the Ultimate, the Elite includes a back focus adjustment ring and an upgraded achromat lens. The upgraded lens makes the adapter sharper than a stock Extreme.
For the greatest compatibility and ease of use, the Elite and Ultimate are the best choices.
Contains IOC prism technology which means the image is flipped upright, there is no need for flipping the video in post, or rigging special preview monitors.
Our IOC prism is not only for flipping the image, it also provides a longer optical path between the camera sensor and ground glass. This allows us to obtain a much sharper image in a shorter adapter body. Please visit our Wiki for more information.
Our modular design allows a single adapter to be used with many types of lenses and cameras. You do not need to purchase a adapter for each camera that you plan to use. Please visit our Wiki for more information.
The Optimized achromat is a special lens in the back of the adapter that resolves the issue with Edge to Edge focus on cameras that have offset image sensors such as the: Sony PMW-EX1/EX3 and the Panasonic AG-HVX200/HPX170. Please visit our Wiki for more information.
The back focus ring is a feature that allows you to easily adjust back focus without needing to manually adjust the ground glass position. You simply loosen the locking screws and adjust the ring until back focus is correct. Please visit our Wiki for more information.
