Hello

Since few months, i'm looking for one tilting objective for macro.
Everybody knows the amazing PCE Micro Nikkor 85... really too expensive for me and my practice.
So i show you my "bricolage"
I found one Rodagon 50 mm f/5,6 - repro lens - 25 diameter - 30 mm of length
I drilled a golf ball. Rear side is made with one macro chinese macro tubes Nikon F.

01 -

02 -

The ball is blocked at the front by a ring Nikon F (male) -> M42
03 -

I used also two rings of foam.
04 -

I used it for one example.
PB6 extended of 2/3

Without tilt


(raw shot - original size here)

With tilt - same focus, same lighting, without moving the flower (dandelion)


(original size here)

Impressive, right ?

Fred,

That's a very sophisticated and cool "bricolage"!
Another one to put on my DYI things to-do list.
Thanks for sharing, and the informative pictures ! Very Happy

BTW, I've very much enjoyed your photos on flickr, and immediately fell in love with your cat! Laughing Wink

Thanks Betty

Since many months, i'm looking for "no vibration system" when i take photos... I should perhaps begin by removing the "ronron" machine. Very Happy

Thank you for showing your idea and solution!
For normal photography I thought about the antiperspirants with ball assembly, but found no small enough lens. There I started with Canon FD lenses and a flood light setup.
