this is really cool, u have some kind of instructions of how you built it?
Thanks, working on the instruction now but I must add that each design is different and everything is very much dependent on the lens used in tilt projects. Instruction will be available soon. Stay tuned.
thanks, yes I bet it's not easy to make a proper instruction for all the lenses, but it would be nice to know what and how you were using to build the extension, thanks!
THANKS A LOT! also the pictures are really nice! congrats!
This is a great DIY and the pictures looks lovely. Did you use plastic tigheners to hold the rubber to both the lens and the bayonet? Also, how is the control using the modified showerhead? Any need to add some rubber seals for added control?
Thank You, yes i use cabel ties to keep rubber in place, for control i use focus ring, the movements, tilting is smoot enough end easy to control.... Like on the picture nr3 lens is disconnect from bayonet only, rest of the lens is still there, that why i still got focusing working. For bayonet you can use lens adapter ect. dependent of camera you use.
Very cool, but i can't understand how to build it. I hope you will write some new instructions ;)The money-less guys will thank you :D

brilliant brilliant work - excellent DIY lens-ing - also love the colours of your photos - what are your secrets...?www.flickr.com/photos/e-jays
Thank you, secrets will be reveal soon i let you now guys on flickr and here... thanks again
amazing DIY. 2 questions:1. Can you still use the focus ring for focusing? 2. How much shift/tilt and rotate can the rubber handle without totally distorting the view?
Thanks,1. Yes focus is still working by rotating front element of the lens(not the focus ring not the rubber) just check my new post "Inside Job" you can see there.2. I can easly tilt lens around 30 degree, shift i realy small maybe 2-3mm.
Technically, you've made more of a lensbaby than a tilt-shift lens. Tilt shifts are just the big trend right now for creating the same effect you can do way cheaper with a lensbaby. A true tilt-shift lens is meant for correcting verticals in architectural photography. And this lens doesn't actually shift at all. Only tilts.Cool idea though.
Thanks, this lens is shifting but only 2-3 mm every direction. Bit busy now but before this weekend i tray get some samples.
The hard part for me has been find the spherical piece, something I can sacrifice to make this work. I have the lens (an old Minolta 50mm normal lens) disassembled. I have tried a couple of things where you use the glove (bicycle inner tubes, punctured ones are free at any bike shop, plumbing fittings which seem to be a little too stiff and inflexible). I'll keep looking around.
Good post.I really like your post.I like the way you describing this post.Its really informative for the followers.Thanks for sharing this awesome post.Cool Air Miami Air Duct Cleaning

Rubber products are gaining more and more popularity now days so using those rubber products would be more effective for us and there is no harm in that.
Parker seals and adhesives play a very important part. They have several roles to play, and they play these roles rather successfully.
