Best Current Cam/Groud Glass Combo

what would be the best cam to put something like a letus extreme on? narrative/music video. Fitted between the cam and an Anamorphix adapter if possible. Any chance of doing it with a Blackmagic Pocket Camera? more concerned with latitude than resolution. Thanks!

If you've never shot with a DOF adapter I would recommend buying a cheap used one and practicing with it because they are a pain in the *ss to shoot with.

- First they are a big long rig to handle once the camera, spinning ground glass adapter, and lens are set up.

- Next you have to make sure the camera is always focused properly on the DOF adapter, as any focus errors will be greatly exaggerated in you final footage.

- Lastly they often weigh a ton when fully rigged with a matte-box and follow-focus.

...I would never want to go back to using a DOF adapter, not for any amount of money.

Good-luck!

I agree with guy. Sometimes can be worse the medicine than the sickness. Not always is a good thing if you shoot alone have a DOF gear.
