Item description

The Tilt Adapter is no ordinary adapter. This adapter expands your M42 lens with the popular tilt function. The tilt adapter is a particularly convenient and inexpensive alternative to the tilt lens, because with it you can use your regular lenses and swap them out as needed. You can tilt the adapter by 8° and turn it freely due to the ball joint. That way you can create great effect shots, in which you can use selective sharpness and blurredness specifically to achieve, e.g. miniature effects.

The lens adapter by walimex connects your M42 lenses to cameras with a Micro Four Thirds connection. Due to the precise and accurate assembly, the adapter securely locks into the bayonet connection of your camera.

The connection is entirely mechanical, so no electronic data transfer takes place. Thus settings regarding f-stop, focus, etc. have to be made manually. Focusing to infinity can be done without any problems.

We also offer adapters for other lens types.
