    Tilt/shift question about Mamiya Rb67

    I was wondering if there is some adapter or a special way to get tilt and shift movements on the rb67, if anyone here has experience with this; I just discovered an rz67 adapter but it is really too expensive.

    Pretty much the tilt shift adapter and the short barrel lenses on the rz are the only choice.

    sell your RB67 stuff and buy a GX680

    All front movements are available(no rear): rise/fall, shift, AND tilt

    It's custom. I remember finding that out. When I picked my jaw up off the ground, I found the guy made it himself. It can use any of the RB lenses or backs.

    Glad this topic came up.
    I am trying to do something similar with a Toyo as well. For both the 67 and as well as 35mm digital. Can you let me know what might be the hiccups I could face when attempting something similar?
    Also, I tried looking up for the document you mentioned elsewhere but I couldnt find it.

    I am not good at custom building or DIY, but if you have a link about how to do it then it may be a big help, wish if it was something ready to buy rather than custom making.

    By the time you factor in the cost and added weight of something like this, you're going to be way better off buying a real view camera. And
    the lenses will be more appropriate for movements too. Same reason the Hassie ArcBody belly-flopped. About the most practical or portable thing in an MF SLR with limited movements (front tilts) was the old Rollei SL66. Then various MF technical cameras have been made, some of which will accommodate your Mamiya back.

    Agree with Drew. A real 4x5 is a better choice. I have the rz tlt shift setup, it's well made but really limited compared and clumsy compared to even a basic 4x5, and way heavy to boot.
