Sony NEX Kipon Tilt Lens Adapters Available



So how do you achieve the selective focus as seen in the video above? It is done with by tilting the lens so that it is not parallel to the image sensor, aka the Scheimpflug principle.

Kipon released 4 tilt adapters for the Sony NEX cameras. Contax / Yashica, Leica R, M42, and Nikon F manual focus lenses can be adapted and tilted on the Sony NEX. They are available on eBay and Amazon.

  2. TheAlp - yes you will need a 3rd party manual lens (Nikon, Contax, etc) so that you can control the aperture.
