Hasselblad HTS 1.5 overview

  • 1Description

The Hasselblad HTS 1.5 Tilt and Shift Adapter allows digital H-series Hasselblad SLR cameras to enjoy much of the benefits of a view camera, but in a decidedly more compact and easy-to-use package.  The HTS 1.5 is compatible with Hasselblad's 28mm HCD as well as the HC 35, 50, 80, & 100mm lenses, and extends the focal length of the lens by a factor of 1.5x.  Thus, in a sense, the HTS 1.5 is a teleconverter with an incorporated tilt/shift mechanism.

The introduction of tilt and shift allows new avenues of creative expression for advanced photographers; if you've never been exposed to it, you'll be infused with new energy for your instrument after trying it just a few times.  With a regular camera, the physical relationship between the lens and the camera is always the same; the center of the lens and the center of the camera format are always upon the same axis, and the plane of the image receiving device is always perpendicular to the lens' optical axis.  This simply is not always preferable for photography.

When tilting the lens, you move the optical axis relative to the image receiving area.  By doing so, you also move the plane of focus in the image field; instead of always being a plane parallel to the image receiving area, you can have a triangular area of sharpness extending directly towards the camera, away from the camera, or anything in between.  Thus, you can capture a seemingly-infinite sharpness area at any aperture, or alternatively you can have a shallow slice of sharpness surrounded by an exaggerated pronouncement of blurring around the point of focus.

When shifting the lens, you move the center of the lens away from the center of the format.  Primarily, this allows you to capture architectural images of buildings free from having converging vertical lines.  Your images will have straight and true representation, just as it should be.  You can also take advantage of shift to have the center of an image appear different than it actually is-for example, you cannot take a picture in the middle of a busy street but with a lateral shift you can capture an image appearing as if you were in the middle of the road.  This can also allow you to make an image near a reflective surface such as a mirror without having your equipment appear in the reflections captured in the photograph.

Combining tilt and shift capacities allows the best of both worlds, and the HTS 1.5 rotates 90° to the camera body so that your shift and tilt can either be up/down or side-to-side in the image.

With the digital communications of the HTS 1.5, you'll enjoy rich sharpness in the resulting images, no matter how you take advantage of the image field.  With a conventional view camera, resolution suffers as a result of approaching the limits of the lens' image circle via tilts and shifts.  But the HTS 1.5 has "DAC" chromatic aberration correction, which means that the adapter communicates the lens used and the exact position of the tilt and shift so that the effect of diminished resolution near the edges of the image circle is practically eliminated.

    Hasselblad HTS 1.5 reviews

    HTS 1.5 Tilt & Shift Adapter for H-Series Digital Cameras is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Accessory This is a great accessory for this digital system and was the major reason I purchased Hasselblad in lieu of another manufacturer's MFD camera. It allows a significant amount of tilt and shift, but only in the same axis. In other words, one cannot use both tilt and shift in mutually different axes. However, I knew that before the purchase. The image quality with the 28 and 80 lenses (according to the manual, the two primary lenses it was designed to work with best) is exceptional. Focusing with the HTS is manual only, and the focus indicator does not work when it is attached, so it requires some care. Metering is done only when the HTS is at its neutral position - it shuts off as soon as tilt or shift is applied, but the camera appears to compensate automatically. The GPS module cannot be attached to the camera at the same time as the HTS. Also, the stop down and mirror up buttons need to be reassigned to the back of the camera to us them. Negatives aside, still highly recommended.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Adds great versatility I tested the preproduction prototype for a few weeks and it was exactly what I was hoping for. Well, I wished it didn't multiply the lens by half which sort of screws the pooch for architectural photographers but you at least can shift your way to a wider overall shot. This piece is what separates the Hasselblad system from the others and helps make it the complete system. There's nothing more frustrating than a digital back on a view camera (it makes a daguerrotype seem spontaneous) but the HTS brings the fast tilt/shift versatility of the Canon TS-E lenses to the superior capture quality of the Hasselblad. You can tilt and shift in the same direction and the camera can read the degrees although it's not in the meta data which would be nice. You have to use an included spacer to get the whole thing away from the tripod but that's not a big deal. It adds great flexibility to 28 - 100mm (fixed) lenses but the only real drawback is the price which is about double what I'd be happy to pay which is why I still don't own one yet.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Improving the system Using as a tilt and shift very easily as if you have a large format camera and working directly with a view finder..Amazing. Not as performant as a real large format but hight enough for most of the subjects..... I use it as a converter for 28 and 80 you add 2 lenses to your equipment. Very sharp and so well manufactured. To expensive of course...
