    Camera movement question

    Is there a way of getting back tilt effect when no back tilt
    is available on the camera ? I think not, but you never know...
    Thanks !

    Does your camera have back swing?

    Tilt the entire camera back, then tilt the lensboard forward.

    If you believe you can, or you believe you can't... you're right.

    I know I can test, but do you get the perspective change as well this way (compared to a real back tilt) ?
    Thanks

    Maybe.. . .

    Tilt the whole camera back. Then use the front movements . . .tilt front standard forward and use rise/fall to reenter the composition. Might be somewhat limited and cumbersome. Don't really know if this will work either.

    Let us know what you do and what you get.

    There are only three types of mounting flanges; too big, too small and wrong thread!

    And not unlike the situation when I want to get front tilt on my Korona that has back tilt, but no front tilt...

    For front tilt I need to tilt the camera back, then tilt the camera until the back is vertical and then use the front rise to recompose the image.
