The final Fujifilm frontier: tilt-shift

With the help of a Kipon Nikon F-mount to Fujifilm X-mount tilt-shift adaptor and a Nikon 35mm f/2 lens, I’m pleased to report that I now have a tilt-shift rig roughly equivalent to the Canon 45mm TS-E I used to own and love.

Losing the ability to tilt and shift was a given when I traded Canon for Fujifilm, and I’d made peace with it. But I’m glad it’s an option again, even if it’s a bit clunky looking.

Here’s the first (only!) frame I’ve captured with it so far, straight out of camera (full tilt, lens wide open). Nothing earth shattering, but the effect is more than strong enough to do some interesting work with, methinks.
