The Lensbaby Tilt Transformer works with Micro Four Thirds Panasonic Lumix™ G Micro System, Olympus PEN Digital cameras and Sony a NEX cameras. The Tilt Transformer™ allows photographers to mount any Nikon® mount lens (sold separately) to their Micro Four Thirds or Sony® a NEX camera and tilt up to twice as far as with standard tilt-shift lenses, delivering photos that have a slice of focus through the image, bordered by a soft blur.
You control the size of your slice with your aperture – f/1.4 will produce a very thin slice of focus with abundant blur, while f/22 will produce a very wide slice of focus with minimal blur. Extreme tilt at a bright aperture will make the slice appear even thinner. You control the placement of your slice of focus with your tilt. Tilt directly left or right to get a vertical slice. Tilt straight up or down to get a horizontal slice. Tilt diagonally to get a diagonal slice.
The Tilt Transformer tilts up to twice as far as standard tilt-shift lenses, letting your imagination be the only limit to the images you create.
Tilt Transformer Features
For Micro Four Thirds Panasonic Lumix G Micro Series, Olympus PEN cameras and Sony a NEX E-mount cameras
When used with a Nikon mount lens (not included; sold separately), produces a slice of focus through the image
Width of focus slice is dependent upon aperture – f/1.4 will produce a very thin slice of focus with abundant blur, while f/22 will produce a very wide slice of focus with just a tiny bit of blur. Extreme tilt at a very bright aperture will make that slice appear even thinner.
Tilts up to twice as far as standard tilt-shift lenses making it possible to achieve more extreme blur falling off of a very thin slice of selective focus, as compared to the usual slice of focus width and focus fall-off of a typical tilt-shift lens.
Built-in mechanism allows Nikon G lenses to function properly at all apertures. Nikon G lenses do not have an aperture ring on the lens itself. This mechanism allows the aperture to open and close by manually rotating the lens itself.
