I really really want to see some pictures taken with this set-up. Those tilt&shift lenses look awesome, but come at quite a price...
Too bad those tilt or shift-adapters only works with pentacon-lenses...

but show us some pics!

It reminds me of the Hama tilt&shift bellows:

That's the whole point of tilt/shift. You need a lens that have a much bigger image circle compared to the the 35mm format lens, or else you will have a black out in a portion of the image when you tilt or shift. Pentacon lenses are pretty low in price, adding with the adapters, you have more flexibility with focal lengths compared to getting just one T/S lens. The cheapest T/S at the moment is Arax 35. That's around $500-$600. A tilt or a shift adapter, each costs around $120, adding a lens, like the Vega 90mm for $60 and my recent acquired Flektogon 50/4 for $70. You already have two usable focal lengths instead of being stuck with just one focal. Admittedly, 35 would be much wider than any of the lens i mention. So that's the plus.

I had no idea that those lenses were that cheap. And had no idea that the lens had to be bigger. So, those are lenses for medium-format then?

thanks!

Examples, update.

Thanks for all the comments. I had a busy week but got out today to play around with the setup. I used a Rikenon 135mm/3.5 bellows lens. This one focuses to infinity on the bellows. I also got a 60mm enlarger lens but it did not arrive yet. I started to read about t/s, thanks for the zoerk link! There are tons of resources on the web.

With tilt:


no tilt:



with shift:


no shift (not to much of an effect):


with double tilt (X+Y):


no tilt (at least not much):

I always wanted a TS with a wide angle to keep things sharp, instead of blurring them, and was kind of put off since any wide angle MF lens costs a lot.

I never thought of using it for macro though. Certainly a worthy application. I guess I'll be building one to attempt better macro shots - keeping more subject in focus.
