Tilt Shift with XPAN lenses?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know of a manufacturer making a tilt/shift adapter that would use Hassleblad/Fuji XPAN lenses.  The image circle is well over 65mm, and the lenses are outstanding and very small for being medium format in coverage (90mm f4 is smaller than FE 50/1.8).  I am surely not the only one to think of this.  It would make an extremely small and light landscape & product setup that would provide a tremendous level of technical camera/lens movement.

 

Shouldn’t be hard to get Kiron to make it since they already make an XPAN to E adapter, just not the T/S version like they do for Nikon F, Olympus OM, & C/Y

Why not just adapt the N/F version to your E-mount body  ? 

  

That possibility is prolly the reason they don't feel obliged 

to build a version direct-fitting to E-mount. Like ... doesn't 

EVERY [geeky/techie/advanced] E-mount user already 

have a N/F adapter in use already ? Acoarst they do :-)

Not sure what you are talking about since there are no XPAN to Nikon F adapters since the registration distance on XPAN is about 12mm shorter than Nikon F, hence no adapting them with a Nikon-E adapter, unless you are only shooting macro, and I specifically stated this would be for landscape and products. 

 (You can get an N/F lens to XPAN mount adapter, but why would you want to put a big clunky and inferior uncoupled 35mm Nikon lens on a 65mm image circle rangefinder body via an adapter? Makes no sense)

 

Nikon F T/S lenses are large/heavy/expensive/scarce and not able to offer the same image circle or movements, and are overpriced for the optics. Canon EF T/S glass is good, but large, heavy and overpriced as well.

Nikon F lenses, or any other conventional 35mm lens via a T/S adapter are unsuitable due to the fact that they will not cover full frame once any lens movements have been made. They only work for APSC.

 

A direct E-XPAN T/S adapter is the only way to make it work, and would offer superior performance, size/weight, and value vs. other options.

Why not just adapt the N/F version to your E-mount body  ?

      Hasselblad broke the 200 MP barrier with it, Olympus boosted the OM-D EM5II, now Pentax is offering Pixel Shift in its 1899,- Full Frame K-1.
       
      Pixel Shift / Multishot. Yes, it's tripod only. Yes, it only makes sense, if your subject is static.
       
      But, the A7*II has in-Body-Image-Stabilization, thus would probably (given the right software) be able to do this, too.
       
      This is not just about resolution, but mainly about canceling out the bayer interpolation (resulting in more detail, better DR and lower noise even at ISO 100)
       
      Please, Sony, pretty please... give us an App (I'd pay $100+ for it!) or a firmware upgrade.
       
      I've started a request in Sonys "Join the Inspiration"-Community last December, maybe you want to join?
