Letus Announces New HDSLR Gear!

Got an email today from Letus introducing their line of gear for HDSLRs.  Without having seen these devices, I have to say I’m impressed.  I’m impressed with the restraint it must have taken to hold the individual configurations from the market place until they were all completed.  I’m also impressed with the build quality, if they are everything they appear to be, these should be some fine pieces of equipment.

The Letus Talon Series consists of 5 variations of rail system/viewfinder.  The “Talon K5”  (pictured) uses the extended base and Talon riser. This allows you to have a “step” in the telescoping support rods and includes a 90mm long stainless steel front rod extension. This is great for easily repositioning a follow focus or matte box when changing out lenses. The riser gives you more vertical clearance then you would have with a straight telescoping rod.  Cost:  $1384

The “Hawk” viewfinder is a radical new design and doesn’t resemble anything on the market.  According to Letus, “we were not satisfied with viewfinders on the market so using our knowledge of optics, we decided to build our own.”   Unlike others on the market, the Hawkeye uses totally custom optics designed and manufactured by Letus using 3 lenses in 2 groups rather than a single, off-the-shelf diopter.   Cost:  $385.

They even have a cage!   The Letus Talon DSLR cage has a releasable camera plate along with a sliding / removable top bridge. The camera plate can be attached from the bottom or the front of the cage for easy camera removal when transporting. The top bridge can slide on standard 15mm diameter rods.   Price:  $699.

You can find all of these items and their entire line of HDSLR gear at http://letusdslr.com/.

Canon 7D

A glimpse of what we’ve been working on over the last few weeks.  A glimpse of what we’ve been working on over the last few weeks.

The documentary is about the current global financial crisis and how it’s effecting American people, loss of homes, jobs, businesses & pensions. Whilst in the States we spoke to many people, economists and everyday Americans alike and there’s alot of disillusionment with the current economic instability and fears that the worst is yet to come. We also look at what’s happening in the world… how the globalized world is so connected that one countries bankruptcy effects all. It’s pretty political but the main thing is, people are beginning to demand change for a system that looks after the majority instead of an elite few.

Would love to hear your thoughts.   Written & Directed by Richard Houston Becka Mezzatesta.  Producers Becka Mezzateta Dragana Kalezic.   Shot & Edited By Harry Charnock.  Music is After the Storm by Mumford & Sons.

HOUSE – Season Finale Teaser

Unless you’ve been under a rock, you’ve surely heard about the season finale of the FOX show HOUSE being shot on a 5D Mark II. House director Greg Yaitanes announced the news on Twitter, then he preceded to take technical questions from the audience. Apparently the 5D was a perfect fit for the “tight spaces” of the finale. They used Canon prime lenses along with the 24-70 and 70-200 zoom and, believe it or not, they didn’t use an image stabilization rig of any sort for the non-tripod shots.It’s been hyped for weeks now on twitter and on the bogs. Last night was the big night. I haven’t heard much from anyone saying anything either positive or negative, and I myself did not have an opportunity to watch it. It should be on hulu in a few weeks. In the meantime, I’ve posted the teaser from FOX here.If you saw it, please post a comment and let us know what you think. Did the episode live up to the hype?
