Tilt shift macro on full frame
« on: February 24, 2013, 04:38:19 PM »

I just replaced my vintage Hasselblad with a Mamiya 645 Pro TL. One of the reasons I did this is to play around with the Mamiya tilt shift bellows. I'm wondering if I could adapt those bellows to my D600 (via Mamiya to Nikon adapter) and use it for macro work, -or possibly use a lens like the 35mm f3.5 for landscape work.
If my understanding is correct the movements (which are limited) would actually be quite decent on a 35mm sensor. Does anyone have any experience with this?
Thanks in advance,

Hello John,

I use a Horseman VVC system with a mount I had made to attach my Mamiya 645 AFDII camera and the shortest lenses I could use was my Rodenstock 105mm Apo Rodagon lens. When I have my Nikon D800E attached with a extension tube mounted as the prism gets in the way the shortest lens is the Rodenstock 80mm Apo Rodagon lens.

Horseman has a new model out which is on next toy to buy list  and the shortest lens you can use is a Rodenstock 60mm Rodagon lens.

I will be selling this Horseman VCC unit with a number of Rodenstock lenses when I upgrade. So if any one is interested please PM me.

So I don’t think a Mamiya 35mm lens will work with your Nikon.
