We're excited and proud to launch Thingiverse Apps. Learn More about what this means to you.
Here is a simple Tilt-Shift adapter which will attach to any micro four thirds camera body and hold a Nikon Series E 50mm lens. This adapter will creates a tilt-shift effect or miniature effect in your photos (see examples below). This is intended to be a more durable and cheaper solution than both DIY and commercial lens adapters ($2100). This was designed to be part of the "Make It Real Contest" on instructables so if you dIg it - follow this link and vote for my project. Thanks!
This has only been tested on micro 4/3 type mount to a Nikon E series mount, but the same principals apply to any body/lens combo you just need to adjust the adapter to fit. I'm still pretty new to 3D modeling so I decided to go with a press fit design when mounting the lens. I'm hoping the community can deviate on this design and create adapter for all types of camera, and improve on my design!
