I think there some lens mount adapters, at least one from Hartblei.de . Some TS lenses have built in tripod mount.
Does anyone know if there are any tech cameras with a tripod mount on the shift lens section of the camera.
I know that for distant landscapes it's less important, but for landscapes with foreground elements or significant elements of depth
it would make a big difference.
While MFD has plenty of resolution with the 80mp sensors, but many out there have lower res sensors like the P45+ with long exposure etc that ask themselves if they can afford the upgrade or if it is worth it. Adding features to improve shift stitching would be an advantage to them.
Even if a landscape photographer does not need the extra resolution he or she might need the wider angle of view that a shift stitch can produce
without buying another lens. For example the Schneider 47mm with maximum shift on either side in a two or tree frame shift would produce
a nice wide angle of view.
An ND/wideangle adapter for enhanced composition simulating the wider angle of view and improving live view on older backs would be nice too.
This could be relatively inexpensive as it would not be used for the final photo and could have all sorts of CA and be on the soft side.
Schneiders partner Century optics is already makes various focal length adapters.
I wonder how a 4x5 58mm super angulon would achieve with a multi frame stitch from a P25 or p45.
Another interesting thing with stitching is using it to produce shallow depth of field or very shallow depth of field that can look very nice on landscape
especially if the in focus parts are particularly sharp. I think the possibilities are quite interesting.
Here is a nice example.http://www.flickr.com/photos/sissonphoto/7207597288/sizes/l/in/photostream/
Imagine this with an MFD sensor on a small image circel 4x5 lens.
