Fun with a Hartblei!
Jan 21, 2009

Just picked up a nice used Harblei 45mm Super Rotator f/3.5 in Nikon mount. This is a beastly large T/S lens that was originally designed for Medium Format and gives an enormous image circle, especially on my D300. Here is a pic of the brute on my camera:

This is a manual, non-CPU lens, but shooting it on manual + spot metering + live view works wonders. Best between f8-f11 and has an interesting bokeh wide open. Of course, being a T/S lens the plane of focus is completely under my control. Here are a couple of building shots from today. Note that there is no parallax on the building.

Don't anthropomorphize digital cameras. They don't like it.
