I have a Mir-26B 45mm and a Arax tilt adapter on the way. I'm anxiously awaiting both pieces so I can finally get my feet wet with some selective focus photography on my 5D. I'll be sure to update with some pics once everything arrives which is going to be at least another week I'm sure...


edit: I thought I would add, this "kit" only cost $270 delivered. I really wanted to go the Mamiya / Mirex route but found the cost savings to be hard to resist for this entry level setup.

The adapter was $125 new, the lens was $95 used on eBay (I made an offer below their asking price and they accepted it). With shipping costs it adds up to $270

I was trying to get both the couple and the roof in focus but there was not enough tilt available.


I looks to me that you tilted too much for the desired effect. Am I wrong?

Too much swing?

Unless you were trying for a different effect you tilted with the lens in the wrong orientation. You tilted horizontally right? I think you should have treated the couple as the foreground and the roof as the background and just tilted vertically.

You may still have not had enough tilt but the photo wouldn't have looked so odd...(again, unless that's what you wanted )

If I only knew that when I purchased my Mirex.

Happy shooting,
Yakim.

Yakim,

Come on now, you can tilt AND shift and have quite an arsenal of lenses to choose from... hardly any reason to be upset

Yeah, but I mostly tilt and that arsenal of lenses is costly.

Happy shooting,
Yakim.

I'm really glad to see this thread! The TS-E 90 is one of my most used lenses for general purpose photography, not just tilt/shift stuff. Whenever I use it I always feels like I'm using an alt lens, due to the manual focus and character of the lens and wish I could post here. Thanks

Here are a few recent ones, all 5DMkII:

Old Campag stuff makes my heart flutter....

This adapter allows tilting in any direction, so I did it roughly at 45 degrees.

Guys, I'm a total noob when it comes to TS so bear with me. I saw that Arax and Hartblei both make tilt adapter for native Nikon and Canon mount lenses. Why don't we go that route? I understand that you can only get the tilt effect in this case.

I wonder how those will work due to the smaller image circle of the 35mm lens? Also worth noting is that those adapters all carry the "macro" designation.

Hi Alan, nice photos and website. You have some great images.

How do you like the Pentax 645 33-55? I'm shooting the 35 FA and I've wondered about the zoom.

thanks

Mike

Some beautiful examples. Prashant, I loved them all! Mind sharing some of the locations? Specifically, the first forest with those brilliant greens, and the lake? Mcbroom, I loved the sand ripples with the grass in the mid-ground, and the cemetery was great. Very moody. Liked the first Campy shot too. Making me drool. Somewhere out there is a guy driving a brown truck bringing my new 5D2 closer and closer every day. When it gets here it's going to be married to the 90mm TS-E for at least a couple weeks, especially if I can get some free time on my hands! I need to look into something wider as well.

Oasisbill, then you will want to stay well clear of 60s and 70s sand-casted Ducati/ Guzzi/ Morini engine parts..and a thank you for the photos in this thread to all.

No shift in any of this but tilt in most; all TS-E 90 (on tubes):











































(seems to be something wrong with pBase, can't get two of them to display in proper size - follow the links to pBase for original sizes)

I'm still waiting on my lens to show up, but I received my Arax P-6 to EF adapter and the build quality seems very decent. I read about the issues with the stops not being properly aligned as well as the shiny reflective screws on the inner diameter.

Mine doesn't appear to have the issue with the stops. When mounted to my camera it has a stop at 12 o'clock, then 2 or 3 (I don't recall) stops between each 90 degree increment. If the stops are misaligned it is not enough to be able to tell with a basic visual inspection.

The screws on the inside don't have a shiny metallic finish, but not exactly matte black either. A Sharpie should easily fix this.

It arrived relatively quickly. I used the $15 shipping option (there is no indication on the website which option should be used) and this may have had to do with the way it was packaged but I don't know. It was sent in a very thinly padded envelope.. luckily no damage. Can't wait for my lens now! I'll be sure to post some photos once everything is in hand.

rtallent,

Very nice examples showing why the TS-E 90 is my favorite Canon lens... followed by the TS-E 45.

Really love the glow in this one!







Beautifully rendered!:
