| p.1 #1 · Tilt and shift lenses (or adapters) - A small contribution : ) !!! |
This thread was not intentional to talk a bit about tilt and shift lenses!
I was looking for a medium format camera on the internet. I wanted
to know what had happened to the Rolleiflex 600X series. A model,
the 6008 integral, was a camera model I was always interested to
use and know more! Unfortunately, until now, I have only seen it,
and not used it!
My internet search, led me to the British Journal of Photography, (BJP).
In this issue, they talk about six or seven different tilt and shift lenses:
Those lenses must be great and very expensive! I remember
that not so long ago someone recommended me the MIREX
adapter. When I have enough money, I think I'll buy this
adapter. I could turn two Hasselblad lenses I own, an 80 and a 120 mm.,
into tilt and shift lenses. It costs some 600€ and the adapter can be used
with different some, but not all brands of lenses. Here is a link to
the MIREX webpage:
As mentioned, the MIREX, may work with some, but not all lenses!
Specifically, it will work with some brands of medium format lenses!
The MIREX has a t-Mount that I don't know if the t-mount is compati-
ble with Canon, Nikon, or other camera brand names.
Anybody knows which camera systems are compatible with the t-Mount ??
I saw this video! The photographer is using a very nice Schneider
lens with a Phase One digital medium format camera. To be honest,
I don't fully understand the use or the need for a tilt and shift
lens or adapter for longer focal lengths. Could anyone please
tell me which are the reasons why would I want use such lens or
adapter? I know a tilt and shift lens with wide focal lengths will be
used to correct perspective, but for longer focal lengths, wofür??
I also liked this video. Shot without a tilt and shift lenses. I wouldn't
like to be a model when it is cold:
Well, I wish you a very nice day : ) !!!
By the way, these are the links I found for the Rolleiflex.
A camera that I think is fantastic : ) !!! (One can adapt to it
