Print Your Own Tilt Shift Lens Adapter

Joe Murphy wrote to tell us about his new Instructables entry.

It’s a 3D printable tilt-shift lens adaptor, which is currently being featured on Instructables. The plans can be downloaded and printed for free from thingaverse and instructables.

Here are some reasons why this is a killer project:

  • It’s cheap – Even if you add in the cost of the 3D printer this project is still less than a professional tilt shift lens, giving comparable results and using less than $1’s worth of plastic filament.
  • It’s durable – it will stand up to the wear and tear in your bag (unlike other DIY solutions).
  • It’s creative commons – modify, edit, re-mix, remake – it’s yours baby!

I love tilt-shift photography, and love tilt-shift movies even more.  Check out this one shot around New York City.

Check out Joe’s write up on Instructables for the complete details.


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.

  1. I’ll hang on to my Canon 45 TS-E for a while yet … but fun project, and doing this is SW really just doesn’t come close to the real thing. I picked this lens up ages back moving from large format, and still really miss portraits on 4×5″ film with a good lens. Be interesting to try my hand at the same effect since it’s been years that the TS-E (and everything else!) has been gathering dust.

    A neat project. But it is funny to see everyone using lens tilt (there is no shift here) as a gimmick to throw things out of focus. Theodor Scheimpflug must be turning in his grave.
