SHIFT (AND TILT) ON H SERIES HASSELBLAD?
« on: March 09, 2006, 01:46:09 PM »

Hi,
Does anyone know of any way of using a shift and tilt (or just shift if necessary) lenses on a Hasselblad H1 or H2 and digital back.
Is the hasselblad mutar shift with the cf lens convertor a possibilty?
If not does anyone have suggestions for best mf body / lens combination for this..it is for interiors where ease of use of MF over large format camera is verybeneficial and quality of mf over dslr also required.
Thanks.

I believe the problem is that in-lens shutters and T&S just don't mix.

Although Rollei manages to do so with the Schneider 55 4.5 T/S lens.
But Hasselblad V series never had one indeed.

There is  a Rollei 600X T&S lens. Michael has owned it in the past and descoirbed it as a monster - it is very heavy and big (size of "a babies head" acording to MR)!

I'm sure its good... but rare (expensive)

There is a weird accessory, the Hasselblad Zeiss PC-Mutar Shift Converter. This combines a 1.4x teleconvertor with shift (no tilt), usable with 40mm to 100mm lenses, so 56-140mm afer the 1.4x. I guess that the idea is that the 1.4x mag. increases the image circle size enough to allow shifting.

Hasselblad have officially now said that they are developing an H series T&S lens.

Incidentally they've also made an announcement that there will be a waist level finder for the H body at Photokina, the slightly bizzarre explanation for the timing of this accessory is that they say it's only now with 39MP backs that a 645 WLF finder has relevance, in that 39MP allows a vertical crop from a horizontal camera. Contax had a 645 WLF from the get go, and wasn't there a Bronica WLF that pivoted, so it still worked even if the camera was in the vertical position?

The explanation is a bit bizarre; maybe they think that WLVF use is dominated by portraiture and hence by verticals? I would think that a better solution could be a rotating back in 36x48mm format: maybe that is one for Mamiya to try again! But maybe that will work better if and when these "digital large format" cameras get live view on the LCD; otherwise the mirror needs to be enlarged, to cover both vertical and horizontal mode.
