EOS-M tilt shift adapter ?
« on: May 06, 2013, 07:09:08 PM »
would it be possible to make an adapter for an EOS-M that allowed you to turn any EF lens into a tilt shift ?
looking at the amount of available room in the flange distances i think its probably possible.
It would be a pretty killer little piece of kit

there is a lensbabies tilt transformer to adapt nikon lenses to sony n bodies.  Adjustable tilt and requires a lens with an aperture ring to control the iris.  The problem may be adapting the m43 or NEX mount to the EF-M.

I would settle for this, I think, although a flexible ribbon for contacts would be required for even aperture control on EF lenses.

The donor lens would also need to throw enough of a useable circle to cover the sensor at available tilts...

The other alternative would be for a camera body to feature a tiltable sensor... surely it can't be that big a step up from sensor stabilisation.

Back to the question though... yeah a titlable M adaptor would be cool!

It's a shame there isn't an ef option, with controls via a ribbon.

What do you want? A serious ts or a fun ts?  There are fd- f convertirs, usually with coke bottle optics though, eouldn't be do bad for fake minature...
