That website is horrible. They show the same tiny graphic for ALL the versions of the product and don't tell you anything about how it mounts or how you get ND grads onto it. Go to the 17mm ts-e page. Virtually no useful info there.
After a few weeks of studying the method that Fred has demonstrated on his long running thread, I'm coming up with my own device that will hopefully allow full shift with no vignette. I don't now if the 4x6" filter itself will become the limiting factor. I hope to be complete next week and will post here if successful.
UPDATE: Last time I checked, the WonderPana 66 system was NOT included in the options for the Canon 17mm f/4L TSE. I just checked the site again and noticed that they have added that option. So, as far as I can see, all filters will be compatible with the 17TSE. Here is the link:
The only issue is the price for the system and a set of filters. $1,399.95 !!! And we don't even know how much shifting will be allowed before vignetting.
** If someone gets this adapter, please report back on this thread how useful it is when using TS movements.
We all want you to be the guinea pig!
It would be pretty great if the fotodiox would send you one or two of the systems to test out. As long as there isn't some design issue that could be revealed, I would think they would be happy to jump on the chance to have you post some thoughts about the product. Due to your DIY lens cap filter holder project, there is a lot of attention focused on this website when it comes to 17tse filter solutions.
Price seems steep, but if they have a solution that uses 4x6s and allows full, or almost full, shift/tilt functions, I'm sure there will be some business for them.
If fotodiox reads these pages, I can't image that they wouldn't jump on the chance to get some free marketing...
The home-made adapter is compatible with regular 4"x6" LEE filters and therefore works very well for those who already invested in that system set. However, I was wondering if this new solution will allow full SHIFT.
BTW: I believe it supports 6"x8" filters only.
