The Mamiya 180mm Short Barrel lens combined with the Tilt/Shift Adapter is an ideal lens for product or headshot work. Many corporate/industrial assignments can be tackled with this combination.
Mamiya lenses are quality controlled at all stages. They are engineered for professional use. Mamiya manufactures its own glass and coats the lens elements using Mamiya's proprietary multi-coating process, increasing light transmission, dramatically reducing flare, and ensuring crisp, clean whites and vibrant natural colors.
- Special lens intended for use with Mamiya's Tilt/Shift Adapter; It fits between the lens and the body and as such functions as a sort of extension tube; The Mamiya Tilt/Shift adapter is an accessory for the RZ67 system that adds upward/downward tilt and rise/fall to the cameras capability
- Popular focal length for portraits and product shots
- Standard RZ lenses will only work with this item in very close focusing situations
- Mamiya offers two lenses that are specific to use with this adapter and can still be focused to infinity
- They have a shorter barrel length and are simply, the 75mm f/4.5 and 180mm f/4.5 Short Barrel (SB) lenses
- They can be used without the Tilt/Shift adapter as standard lenses but to regain the full focusing range, they should be used in combination with the accessory SB Auto Spacer, which is an extension tube of the same thickness as the Tilt/Shift Adapter
