The Tilt/Shift adapter is designed for use with all Mamiya RZ lenses. Using a bellows mechanism and electronic connection, the adapter interfaces between the camera and lens, maintaining all electronic functions, and allowing control of perspective and depth of field using tilt and shift movements similar to a view camera.
Creative applications include increasing depth of field or decreasing depth of field, as seen in many fashion and product advertisements, where unusual focus effects are desired. Ideal for architectural photography for controlling perspective and depth of field. A perfect solution for product tabletop photography including digital.
Minimum and maximum focus distances will vary with focal length and degree of movement used, similar to distance restrictions when using the #1 extension tube. Accepts RZ Short Barrel lenses for infinity focus: 75mm f/4.5 Short Barrel and 180mm f/4.5 Short Barrel. Focusing at a maximum distance of 10 feet is possible with lenses from 180mm or longer. Adding 27.2mm of extension, plus the capability to adjust perspective and depth of field, the Adapter is ideal for product photography and close-up applications. If using non-short barrel lenses, Mamiya recommends using with lenses from 110mm to 350mm.
