Here is another variation of the tilt-shirt, or bellows, lens for selective focus photography. Marcus was able to salvage the parts from a $5 camera and the final results were very good at a close range. – Link

I love that Nikon F2 in the top image, it’s probably the best camera ever made. It’s too bad that model doesn’t have a light meter though.
For what it’s worth, it’s not an F2. Which I agree was one of the all time great cameras. It is an FE2 – a great “consumer level” Nikon It does have integrated light metering.
The head looked weird to me and I’m familiar with the F2A and F2 photomic heads, I shouldn’t have assumed :). I think the no-meter F2 head is smaller than the one pictured. Since you pointed it out, I can actually read the FE2 logo in that picture, but it’s so faint I never would have found it otherwise.
I always heard everything E-series dismissed as junk with Nikon (E lenses and the FE2).
To this day, I really regret selling my F2.
