Print a Custom Tilt-Shift Lens Adapter [Video]

If you’re enamored by the neat tilt-shift photos that seem to be everywhere on the web, this tutorial will show you how to use a 3D printer to create your own tilt-shift lens adapter.

It’s a bit heavy on the tech-know how (you’ll need to use 3D modeling software and a 3D printer) but the results are quite polished. Watch the video above to see the process and the results and then hit up the link below for the full tutorial.

If it can be modded, optimized, repurposed, or torn apart for fun he's interested (and probably already at the workbench taking it apart). You can follow him on if you'd like.

    That is awesome for creating some additional effects for your camera but I really wish people would learn that “Tilt-Shift” was not created to make miniatures; and that’s actually a product of improper tilt application.
    It’s like saying that Photoshop is for adding instagram style filters. Sure it can be used for that and that is very popular now but you’re really overlooking the diverse purpose(s) of the program.
