About Lensbaby

The Tilt Transformer allows photographers to mount any Nikon mount lens to their Micro Four Thirds or Sony ? NEX camera and tilt up to twice as far as with standard tilt-shift lenses, delivering photos that have a slice of focus through the image, bordered by a soft blur. The Tilt Transformer provides the foundation for the Composer Front Focus. When used together, they become the Composer with Tilt Transformer, for use on Micro Four Thirds or Sony ? NEX cameras. This provides photographers with access to the limitless creativity offered by the Lensbaby Optic Swap system.

The Tilt Transformer allows photographers to fluidly tilt their Nikon mount lens up to twice as far as with traditional tilt-shift lenses. It also provides photographers with extraordinary control over the size and placement of a slice of focus through their photograph. The Tilt Transformer's swivel ball is based on the patent pending design Lensbaby developed for the award winning Lensbaby Composer Creative Effects camera lens. The front of the swivel ball has a Nikon mount, allowing photographers to mount Nikon mount lenses

Lensbaby Features

  • When used with a Nikon mount lens, produces a slice of focus through the image
  • Width of focus slice is dependent upon aperture - f/1.4 will produce a very thin slice of focus with abundant blur, while f/22 will produce a very wide slice of focus with just a tiny bit of blur. Extreme tilt at a very bright aperture will make that slice appear even thinner
  • Tilts up to twice as far as standard tilt-shift lenses making it possible to achieve more extreme blur falling off of a very thin slice of selective focus, as compared to the usual slice of focus width and focus fall-off of a typical tilt-shift lens
  • Built-in mechanism allows Nikon G lenses to function properly at all apertures. Nikon G lenses do not have an aperture ring on the lens itself. This mechanism allows the aperture to open and close by manually rotating the lens itself
  • High quality metal swivel ball for smooth, fluid tilt
  • Easy grip, metal locking ring controls ease of adjusting tilt
  • All metal, precision construction

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Folks, anyone who has this; is there a detent at the neutral tilt position, or do you just eye-ball it to get the lens axis perpendicular to sensor plane? Does the locking ring really lock the tilt movement?
Andrew R  Unfortunately no, the Tilt Transformer does not appear to have a detent to indicate a centered (or "zeroed") position. The locking ring should function to hold the unit in a single position for repeatability.
