Budapest – tilted

It’s been over a month since I came back from Budapest… I’ve pretty big stack of pictures I need to post processed, so I decided I’m going to give you almost raw tilted Budapest pictures. For Budapest trip, as you can see below I mostly used Carl Zeiss 80 f/2.8 and Carl Zeiss 50 f/4.0 with tilt adapter (with exception of couple of pics taken with 85 f/1.2). If you want to see what you need to buy (cheaper than original Canon lens) to get similar effect – jump right on the bottom of the post, if not – just enjoy the photos:)

Tilt Tips

Yes, I’m aware that 95% of pictures above are “tilted”, but for some reason I find them very interesting. It makes you to look at things from other angles, different perspectives, I don’t know – it’s just cool:)

Of course you can get tilt/shift lens made by Canon, but the cheapest one is around $1,200 and the L glass is over 2 grounds! It’s a lot of lettuce for manual focus lens!! So thanks to my friend – Pete, there is another solution: get tilt adapter and Carl Zeiss lens.

Here is the tilt adapter I bought from ebay: Tilt Adapter, you can buy it for Canon or Nikon, it’s $129, free shipping to CONUS. You don’t have to buy that one from NYC, just search ebay for “tilt adapter pentacon 6″, you’ll find plenty.

OK, we’re halfway thru – now we need to get the lens:)My favorite is Carl Zeiss 80mm f/2.8 Biometar, but Carl Zeiss 50mm f/4.0 Flektagon is also nice. I just happen to use more 80mm 2.8… make sure you get the lens with Pentacon 6 mount. Sometimes you can find them on ebay or fredmiranda, but because Carl Zeiss Pentacon 6 mount was Easter German version of lens for Hasselblad cameras, you can find more of them in Europe (I brought 5 of them from my Europe trip:)).  If you can, get MC (multicoated) version – but no biggie if you cannot. Today, I found couple of Carl Zeiss 50mm f/4.0 on ebay for around $250 shipping free. In Europe they’re for half of that price –  I guess that’s the only photography thing that is cheaper on the “other Island”:)oh well…

Anyway, for around $380 you’ll get sharp tilt lens (lens and adapter), and for another $200-300 you can buy another Carl Zeiss lens, so for the half of the price that you’ve to pay for cheapest Canon tilt/shift you get 2 good lenses and tilt adapter – that’s a steal! Nowadays, at least one of Carl Zeiss lens and tilt adapter find their place in my bag, and for sure I’ll take them with me for upcoming trip to NYC for McNally’s workshops!:D

Hope that helps…

miami wedding photographer - Thanks for posting. Have you ever tried the Zeiss 80 f/2 on the adapter?

bizior - @miami wedding photographer: no, I haven’t tried Zeiss 80 f/2. Honestly I’m not sure if you can use that lens (if you’re talking about Carl Zeiss Planar T* lens) with tilt adapter I’m linking to, since it’s pentacon six mount… hope that helps

Cheap Diablo 3 Identify - This is why I simply quit MMOs. Because game makers design golfing to require so much wedding ceremony that it becomes appealing to pay someone else to try out for you. At that point, is it really the action if you’d pay someone else to get it done for you?
