Tilt/shift lenses are over $1000? That's absurd.

It would be a pain, though, without the bellows position locking in place like a large format camera.

I'm not sure how they are overcoming the fact that if you move your lens away from the body like that, you can only really focus a few feet away (the basis behind extension tubes for macro photography.) Maybe with the lens pulled close and with a high DOF, you can use it for far away objects -- which might have been what they did to capture the images shown.

I have a lensbaby for Nikon if anyone wants to borrow it. Same idea without the focus issues.

Brian,

It's a MF lens, so it has a longer registration distance.

lol, i was going to at one point, but it was cheaper to buy a lens baby than a medium format lens, so I went with the lens baby on ebay for $50. lol

A quick test shows that an enlarger lens might work well, too. Registration distance is about 2 inches when used as a normal lens. A LF lens wouldn't work too well -- my 135mm 4x5 lens seems to focus in the 6+ inch range.

Yeah, Jason, something like 135mm, maybe (5.3 inches, focusing at infinity, that is -- further if you are focusing on something closer than that.)
