HOW TO – Make a Tilt-Shift PC Lens

Dsc 0091.SizedDave writes – “When viewing this site it got me curious about tilt-shift lenses. Could be a nifty hack and save $1000 – “Here is another fairly easy hack that if you like it, and use it, can save you goo-gobs of money. Build your own tilt-shift lens. I know there are people out there who would love to experiment with a PC Shift lens, but the cost of purchasing one is generally prohibitive unless you plan to shoot professionally with the lens. (A nikon shift lens with tilt functions cost over $1000, BTW: The Nikon guys once took a look over this and said, “why would you do that to such a nice camera? We sell that lens you know.” I know. That’s the point).” Link.

  1. I saw this article a little while ago, and thought about trying to hack one together, but I can’t seem to find a good source of the bellows material. I believe the author used a toilet plunger, but I can’t seem to find that style of plunger locally. Does anybody know a source of bellows material?

  3. I got something similar to the plunger at an auto parts store. It’s a boot designed to go around a shock absorber/strut. $15.
