Hello Keith,I have received my tilt adapter from Italy (m4/3 to M42) and it looks good - well made and fits well.
Here is a test image using the Pentax 50/1.4 (my favorite bokeh lens)
I seem to be able to get selective focus and maintain the bokeh
I'll post a bit more about this adapter on the blends thread.
This looks like a no brainer. Very good result and so soon!
Must have one to.
At present they seem to be sold out.
Do you know they have one in FD mount? Could not figure that out.
Here is a bokeh from today.
- No brain -
There seems to be a good variety of mounts on offer for the tilt adapter, I might get the Nikon one later on.
I clicked on the video link for the tilt adapter and afterwards had a sudden urge to light up a Hamlet cigar ...
"Trees and trees"
We have two good specimens of planes in our garden here in Oakville. As you can see, we are virtually snow free right now.
If anyone wants to know the difference between a plane and a sycamore I invite them to go to Wikipedia. I can't figure it out after a few google attempts
But I've seen them from Chile to Turkey, and they all look the same.

Are your prints turning out well? - these images must look stunning as large prints. I've just done a couple of mine on the 16x19 Hahnemuhle gallery wraps and they look great. Next I want to try Mike's encaustic wax, but the wife seems to be having a bit of trouble with it
She is threatening to kick me out into my own space.
Just learned about the patch tool which was great to make a soft overflow from the orange colours of the 2 photographs on the outside to the middle photo. ( A sculpture by Bjork from the financial paradise of Iceland ).
Had two prints made - 60 x 80 cm - placed between digibond and plexiglas. Looks great, hanging on the wall right behind me, waiting to get exhibited.
First proofprints were made to test colour and darkness.
Last two of your trees look nice, did you add some colour there?
I ordered that same adapter in OM Mount. Did not hear a thing yet.
I am curious what it can do for me in city scapes as well.
Here is one from that same museum trip (Groninger Museum) where the last one is derived from.
Cheers, Michiel ( Better do the dirty wax work in your own space, it is no good to get all of this in the way of harmonic mariage )
Michiel - these two tree images were just using the vibrance, saturation and white balance controls in Lightroom (I find it easier to change and modify colors in LR than in PS)
I got an order acknowledgment for the tilt adapter within a few days - he is probably overloaded. It is not as easy to manipulate as the Lensbaby Composer, but usually you have a heavy metal legacy lens on it, versus the plastic lens of the Lensbaby. But I love it
Love to see a photo of those two bokehgraphs of yours hanging on the wall.[/I]
PS Hairy encaustic wax sounds interesting - m3photo always has good ideas. I'd better check with Mike first though.
No idea at all I took it from the desk to burn it....and got some massive protest action....
Could not understand..... girls... you know

I have to admit, my pics are no match for Klaus' beauty
Still, here's a shot from yesterdays walk, G1 with Cosmicar/Pentax 25/1.4 @ 1.4

Many thanks for your kind comments. Your comments are always much appreciated. No pen light was used for the image. It was recorded under a tree where it was fairly dark. The natural light was quite limited around the botanical subjects. Best regards, Leica 77.
This one came from Michiel. One of my early favorites because this kind of image first got me interested in looking at the bokehs of my lenses. Total abstraction - you would never guess the subject lying under there.
The shapes, tones, and complexity draw the eyes in, and you can stay there for a long time.
