Letus StabilizerLetus has shown prototypes of their gimbal stabilizer, Helix, at NAB before, but, if you remember, the prototype’s design was quite different. This year, however, Letus has worked out the kinks and finalized the design, and now Helix is one remarkable piece of gear. Because of its modular design, users have the option to utilize one, two, or all three axises of the optically centered stabilizer, each setup serving a range of shooting scenarios. We unfortunately weren’t able to stop at their booth, but cinema5D was, and Letus’ Aaron Pinto gives a demonstration the Helix while they were there. More »

All joking aside, there are some cool side effects and very real benefits to this new GoPro 1.33X Anamorphic Adapter from Letus. They’ve already introduced an adapter for DSLRs and other large sensor cameras, and now they’re taking things to the miniature level with the new AnamorphX-GP, which will essentially turn your 16:9 GoPro footage into a much wider 2.39 aspect ratio with a simple de-squeeze in post.

Letus Anamorphic-x-1 Letus officially announced their 1.33x anamorphic adapter back in September, and as the release date inches closer (apparently some should start shipping sometime in the next week or two), more videos have been popping up showing off just what it can do. While an anamorphic adapter is made first and foremost to take an image and squeeze it to get a wide and sharp image without cropping, many of the unintended consequences of that squeezing are desired characteristics for certain shooting situations, like horizontal light flares and oval light sources in the background. A number of shooters have been able to test out the adapter, so click through to check out those videos below. More »
