HI all,
I had a l little time and some scrap wood hanging around this weekend, so I made an adapter that provides some front shift, tilt, and rise/fall to my Sony A7Mii digital.

I used a bellows from an old Polaroid Model 95, the focus rail part of a defunct Soligor bellows, an M42 rear mount from a broken lens, and few nuts and bolts. The rig mounts to the Sony via an M42-Emount adapter. The lens is a Voigtlander 15 cm f/4.5 that at some point must have graced the front of a Bessa 6x9 folding camera. Here is what the rig looks like:

Best,

Paul


Enjoy!

Congrats !!!
Simple and efficient!

Haven't you considered the reversed mounting, with tilts allowed for the camera and not for the lens? You could use any FF lens and get no vignetting in the back-tilts configuration, not only MF lenses with bigger image circle.

Great idea! My thought was that if I want rear movements I could always mount the camera on a separate tripod and use the tripod for those motions. Your idea is much more elegant!
