    Dancing PB-4 (Nikon Macro Bellows)

    This could be subtitled, 'The things we do when we're bored'.



    This is an animated GIF to show the Tilt/Shift functionality of the Nikon PB-4 bellows.

    It was for a write up on using various manual focus lenses on modern DSLR's in 'Alternative, Legacy or Manual Focus lenses, an overview'. I didn't end up using this GIF, thought it was a shame not to post or use it.

    These things are much easier to attach all manner of alternative camera bodies on Geoff, simply because you lose nothing.

    With attaching lenses from brand X onto cameras from brand Y, you'll lose some feature, whereas with the bellows it's full manual operation only and when you want a bellows the brand makes no difference other than one of high quality.

    Apparently Minolta make(made) one of the best, but I don't know ... don't have one myself, just the same one as shown here.

    Looks like a hip hop video!

    Looks quite a good article John from the quick skim I just did (I've bookmarked to read in detail later). I like the philosophy...

    Why go to the trouble?

    Because you can...


    Cheers.

    Some Nikon stuff. I shoot Mirrorless and Mirrorlessless.
