There is a tilt option - but I would only recommend it - if ever - for longer lenses. You have to discuss this with Mr. Zoerkendoerfer.

This is how the adapter looks on the 45 mm. It can also be rotated.

The 45mm T+S lens has a 82mm filter thread, so I can use a CP filter. However I cannot use an adapter plate to use my Lee filter holder. I can attach an adapter plate but then I do not full use of the focus ring – so in reality I cannot use my Lee filter holder or filters. Is there a special type of adapter plate for the lens? ...
I can confirm the Lee wide angle adapter does NOT work (it interferes with the focus ring), but the Lee standard adapter DOES work on the Hartblei 45mm TS Superrotator. It was expensive for what it is, but it was the only one I could find at 82mm with the plate in front of the lens so it did not interfere with the focus ring.

EDIT: As always I managed to find a cheap knock off after I bought the Lee adapter plate for about $110, even though I searched far and wide before I bought it. I ordered one for the princely sum of $8. If it is any good I will post details. Corkin Z Pro adapter plates seem compatible.

PTLens now supports 45 and 55 mm on Zoerk adapter

Tom Niemann just released the latest version of PTLens which supports the Pentax 67 45 and 55 mm in combination with the Zoerk adapter!

Just found a bunch of test images from the newer version of Hartblei Super-Rotator 45mm. (The original read is here, it is in Russian though) In short, a Pentax-D FA645 55mm F2.8 and a Hartblei Super-Rotator 45mm were tested. First three images are from 55mm, images from 45 tilt-shift (starting from #4837) have a comment in EXIF stating ammount of shift and aperture setting. To download originals enter 0000

Interesting article.......(use this to translate the Russian to decent English - Google Translate Web - iTools

Image quality is better than I have seen in other examples of this lens , which is usually explained by variations in lens production quality........still suffers from coma and distortion though so needs more work in LR to compensate.....would need to test a lens in a local environment to check image quality.

i agree (OR, that is what this beautiful Sony sensor does to our minds :-)) although sadly I couldnt find any side or corner showing more or less decent resolution

Than you, nice landscape pict.
Would you have other shots with either close subjects / bokeh, and/or architectural subjects ?

645 Tilt Shift

After much diligent searching on Ebay and elsewhere , I tracked down a used Hartblei 45mm tilt/shift for my 645Z. I had been researching the comments/reviews/reports on a variety of sites , and, frankly, was in two minds about buying one, as the comments varied between the good, the bad, and the ugly!
However my initial experiences are positive , and providing you follow the recommendations Stefan Steib reported elsewhere in this section (https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/48-pentax-medium-format/273881-645-tilt-s...#ixzz4Jw26EqF7), the resulting image quality is very good....of course it is not an 'easy' lens to operate by modern auto-focus standards, as it is entirely manual and therefore slow to set-up and use....you also need to focus 'very' carefully using magnified Live View to ensure everything you expect to be in focus , is in focus......
The controls on the lens are very smooth , and much easier to operate than I expected, although great care is needed to ensure you don't alter focus or f/stop when rotating or shifting the lens , for stitched panos...
My initial tests have been interior shots of no artistic merit at all, but sufficient to see that image quality is very good, albeit not to the standard of the newest DFA Pentax Z lenses (90mm , 55mm and 28-45mm) or best ones of the older FA series.
Assuming there is now no significant variation in production quality, and that you can find a clean example of the current (newer 'Digital' branded) version, the Hartblei 45mm F 3.5 t/s is a good addition to the lens arsenal for the 645Z. I will post some images when I have done more landscape/cityscape work, and also plan to test it on some fashion subjects.

I bought a Zoerk Pro Shift Adapter to use with my P67 45mm & 55mm lenses and it came with an adapter already fitted to it. I can't figure out what make of lens the adapter is for. As it was fitted to the PSA the adapter fits the Pentax 67 camera (or my 645D with an adapter). The adapter aperture is 50mm wide and it has screw threads rather than a bayonet fitting. Any ideas what make of lens this takes? I'll get some photos put up of it over the weekend. Thanks.

There are a couple of Schneider Componons with M50 x 0.75 threads, Mark. They're actually spec'd as enlarger lenses but they produce a 15cm image circle at their designed register distance which is longer than that of P645/P67 lenses...making them usable for tilt-shift with some impact on close focus ability.
