If you’re looking for an interesting project for your DSLR camera, you might find the DIY Tilt-Shift lens from Flickr user Maciej Pietuszynski to be worthy of your weekend project time. Maciej’s version uses a shower head and rubber glove in addition to a 50mm/1.8 prime lens. If you’re comfortable cutting a pipe with a hacksaw and disassembling a perfectly good lens, you can pull off this build. The images a lens like this produces more than makes up for the time it takes to assemble. [via DIYP]
