    a true tilt axis

    If one were to design a camera with a true tilt & swing axis, without having to refocus when tilt & swing adjustments are made. 1.Is it the frozen side of the ground glass on the rear frame? 2.And where is it on the front frame?

    a true tilt axis

    Actually they have and it will be introduced in Europe late this year.

    It is from a company called Camdynamics in Germany.

    a true tilt axis

    1. Yes.

    2. The rear nodal point of the lens. The position of this in relation to the front frame will depend on the lens in use.
