    Finally got a high enough vantage point to get more of the diorama effect. I'm still happier doing it without digital PP (cheating :wink:) with my OM 50mm. Shot with an E-P1 through the worst sort of filter..a thick, dirty and reflective window.

    I have a few more if they're of interest.

    I love this effect phrenic. It's amazing how it can make real life stuff look like miniature toys. Interesting vantage point and composition also.

    Using one of the tilt adapters then I presume?! They look good, the 2nd shot in particular definitely has the model feel to it. I need to use my tilt adapter more often!

    Thanks guys. Glad you liked it.

    Yeah, jinfinance OM tilt adapter for 50$. There's some neat ones (by Kipon I think) that offer a larger degree of tilt and 360 degrees of rotation, but I am happy to pay half the price and be able to use it as a standard OM adapter when set back to straight.

    So is the one you have the one I'm seeing that doesn't have the degrees labeled (1-8)? I bought mine used from someone on ebay, it is the one that has the sticker with 1-8 degrees, and it rotates 360 as well. I think they are great little adapters, didn't know there was another version out there already!

    I've got one of the adapters they're selling with the tripod mount on the way now, should be good for a couple of larger lenses and to not stress the tripod socket on the camera too.

    Yeah, no degree markings on this one. It's just as well, I really only go with the full 8degrees or 0. I had no idea there were versions with a tripod mount though..pretty clever. These little machining shops in China come out with some neat products at a bargain price.

    Fun effect.

    I had no idea tilting adapters were available. Do you recall where you got yours for $50? It's $70 on eBay now. Yet another item to add to my GAS list. :rolleyes:

    I would have doubts about the quality of the glass. And it's not like the cheapest C-mount lenses that I wouldn't mind taking a chance on personally. For the price you could buy a decent tilt adapter and a legacy fast 50mm. And if it didn't work out you still have a legacy adapter and a lens that you can use like normal or resell.
