It also seemed like a good idea, in addition to the "Best of XHA1" post, to compile some clips of the XHA1 being employed with 35 mm adapters. In addition to serving as a bit of a comparison between adapters, it will also show what level can be achieved with the XHA1. Could it be worth buying the XHA1 and spending the savings (compared to the HVX or EX1) on your filmmaking kit?
And yes, of course you should note that the artistry and filmmaking choices of those behind the camera will be a greater factor in the quality of any footage than the differences between the competing adapters.
Here is a clip of the XHA1 and the Brevis 35:

Note that the videographer added the vignetting in post.
And here is the XHA1 working with the Letus Extreme.

You gotta love that cat, even if you're a dog person.
The TAMAR - "A NEW DAY" VIDEO was also filmed with this combo.

If you are interested in further dicussion on the topics of adapters in conjunction with the XHA1, here, for example, is a FORUM DISCUSSION on the XHA1 and a Letus / Brevis setup.
